Kennen vs Gwen Counter Stats Summary

Kennen’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.4 is more than Gwen’s ratio of 1.6, showing that Kennen may be more central to his team's team fighting potential than Gwen.

Kennen often has a slightly larger longest kill spree than his counter does. Commonly, Kennen takes less damage than Gwen. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champ with more HP has less mobility and thus is not able to flee from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Kennen typically earns a similar number of minion kills than Gwen. Champions that don't earn many minion kills normally don't need much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling fully off their abilities alone. However, champions with tons of CS, such as carries, usually have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either case, try to pass the values shown here to do well.
