Karthus typically has a similar longest killing spree as his counter does. Typically, Karthus takes less damage than Gnar. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the champion with more health has less agility and thus is not able to escape additional damage when poked or engaged.

In Karthus vs Gnar matchups, Karthus usually tallies much less CS than Gnar. Champions that don't get much CS usually do not need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling fully off their abilities alone. Yet, champs with tons of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of gold to be effective. In either case, work to pass the values shown here to do well.
