Rammus normally has a similar longest killing spree as his foe does. On average, Rammus receives more damage than Aphelios. This often reflects differing health capacities; however, it can also hint that the champion with more HP has less mobility and thus is unable to escape further harm when poked or engaged.

In Rammus vs Aphelios matchups, Rammus commonly racks up much less CS than Aphelios. Champs that don't earn many minion kills usually don't require much CS to be effective.
