Lulu often has a significant smaller longest killing spree than her counter does. On average, Lulu receives less damage than Gnar. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also illustrate that the champ with higher health has less agility and thus is not able to flee from further damage when poked or engaged.

In Lulu vs Gnar matchups, Lulu commonly takes much less CS than Gnar. Champions that do not finish with many minion kills usually don't have to have much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling adequately off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with a lot of CS, such as ADCs, typically need a lot of gold to be effective. In either situation, try to exceed the values shown here to do well.
