Ornn often has a significant smaller longest kill spree than his foe does. Commonly, Ornn receives more damage than Vel'Koz. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also hint that the champion with increased health has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from further damage when engaged or poked.

In Ornn vs Vel'Koz matchups, Ornn usually racks up much more CS than Vel'Koz. Champs that don't amass many minion kills normally don't need much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling well off their abilities alone. However, champions with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, usually have to have a lot of gold to be effective. In either case, work to best the values presented here to do well.
