For instance, Karthus’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.2 is worse than Yuumi’s ratio of 4.7, demonstrating that Karthus may be less central to his team's team fighting potential than Yuumi. This observation is in large part a result of the differences in kills, deaths, and assists.

Karthus often has a much larger longest killing spree than his foe does. Commonly, Karthus takes more damage than Yuumi. This typically indicates differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champion with more HP has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

In Karthus vs Yuumi matchups, Karthus often earns many more minion kills than Yuumi. Champions that do not amass many minion kills typically don't need much CS to be effective.
