Karthus usually has a slightly smaller longest killing spree than his foe does. On average, Karthus receives a similar amount of damage to Urgot. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also imply that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to escape further damage when engaged or poked.

Karthus typically earns many fewer minion kills than Urgot. Champions who on average do not get very much CS normally don't need much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling easily off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with scores of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to exceed the averages shown here to do well.
