Kayle often has a slightly smaller longest kill spree than her enemy does. Typically, Kayle receives a similar amount of damage to Qiyana. This typically indicates differing health capacities, but it can also illustrate that the champion with increased health has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from additional damage when poked or engaged.

In Kayle vs Qiyana matchups, Kayle commonly tallies a few more minion kills than Qiyana. Champs that do not acquire many minion kills usually do not have to have much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling properly off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with tons of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either case, work to top the values presented here to do well.
