As an example, Malzahar’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.3 is not as good as Ezreal’s KDA ratio of 2.7, demonstrating that Malzahar may be less central to his team's team fighting potential than Ezreal.

Malzahar often has a significant smaller longest killing spree than his foe does. Typically, Malzahar receives less damage than Ezreal. This commonly reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also show that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when poked or engaged.
