Qiyana typically has a similar longest kill spree as her counter does. Typically, Qiyana takes less damage than Elise. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also imply that the one champion has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further damage when poked or engaged.

Qiyana commonly takes many more minion kills than Elise. Champs that do not get much CS normally don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale adequately off their abilities alone. However, champs with scores of minion kills, such as ADCs, usually need a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, try to do better than the values shown here to do well.
