Rammus normally has a similar longest killing spree as his opponent does. On average, Rammus receives more damage than Aphelios. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champ with increased health has less mobility and thus is unable to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

Rammus typically totals many fewer minion kills than Aphelios. Champions that don't earn much CS normally do not require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling fully off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically need a lot of items to be effective. In either case, work to top the values presented here to do well.
