Nidalee vs Karma Counter Stats Summary

The stats provided here clarify some strategic Nidalee versus Karma matchup stats that may help you appreciate the distinctions between these two champions. As an example, Nidalee’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.4 is close to Karma’s KDA ratio of 2.7, highlighting that Nidalee may be just as central to her team's team fighting potential than Karma. This observation is largely caused by the differences in kills assists.

Nidalee typically has a much larger longest kill spree than her enemy does. On average, Nidalee takes more damage than Karma. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also imply that the one champ has less agility and thus is not able to escape further harm when poked or engaged.

Nidalee commonly tallies a similar amount of CS than Karma. Champs who on average do not get very much CS normally do not have to have much CS to be useful. They are able to scale fully off their abilities alone. However, champs with a lot of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically need a lot of items to be useful. In either case, try to pass the values shown here to do well.
