Rammus typically has a much larger longest killing spree than his foe does. Typically, Rammus takes more damage than Nautilus. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also show that the champion with more health has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Rammus commonly gets a similar amount of CS than Nautilus. Champs who on average do not earn many minion kills usually do not need much CS to be useful. They are able to scale easily off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with large amounts of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to beat the values shown here to do well.
