Kalista often has a much larger longest killing spree than her opponent does. Typically, Kalista receives less damage than Rammus. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also hint that the champ with more HP has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Kalista often totals much more CS than Rammus. Champions that don't amass very much CS usually do not need much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling fully off their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with scores of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically need a lot of gold to be useful. In either situation, work to exceed the averages displayed here to do well.
