Kalista typically has a much larger longest killing spree than her opponent does. Commonly, Kalista receives less damage than Sion. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities; however, it can also hint that the champion with increased HP has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from additional damage when engaged or poked.

In Kalista vs Sion matchups, Kalista often totals a bit more CS than Sion. Champs who on average don't earn a lot of minion kills typically do not have to have much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling properly off of their skills and stats alone. However, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, usually require a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to exceed the averages presented here to do well.
