Pyke vs Swain Counter Stats Summary

The stats shown on this page feature some critical Pyke versus Swain matchup statistics that can help you explain the distinctions between this pair of champs. As an example, Pyke’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.1 is close to Swain’s ratio of 2.3, demonstrating that Pyke may be just as central to his team's team fighting effectiveness than Swain.

Pyke normally has a slightly larger longest kill spree than his opponent does. Typically, Pyke receives a similar amount of damage to Swain. This typically indicates differing health capacities; however, it can also hint that the champion with increased HP has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from further damage when poked or engaged.

Pyke commonly tallies less CS than Swain. Champs that do not get a lot of minion kills normally don't require much CS to be useful. They are capable of scaling well off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with scores of minion kills, such as carries, typically require a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to beat the averages presented here to do well.
