Nautilus often has a similar longest kill spree as his counter does. Commonly, Nautilus receives a similar amount of damage to Leona. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also imply that the one champion has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when poked or engaged.

Nautilus typically gets a similar amount of CS than Leona. Champs that don't get a lot of minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling fully off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with plenty of CS, such as ADCs, usually need a lot of items to be effective. In either case, work to do better than the averages shown here to do well.
