Nautilus often has a significant smaller longest killing spree than his enemy does. Typically, Nautilus takes less damage than Graves. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also hint that the one champion has less mobility and thus is unable to escape additional harm when poked or engaged.

Nautilus often racks up fewer minion kills than Graves. Champions who on average don't get a lot of minion kills typically don't require much CS to be effective. They are able to scale fully off of their skills and stats alone. However, champs with large amounts of CS, such as ADCs, usually have to have a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to outperform the averages shown here to do well.
