Riven typically has a similar longest killing spree as her counter does. Commonly, Riven receives more damage than Qiyana. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also imply that the champ with higher HP has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from further harm when engaged or poked.

Riven typically takes a few more minion kills than Qiyana. Champions who on average do not earn very much CS normally don't require much CS to be useful. They are able to scale adequately off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with scores of minion kills, such as carries, usually need a lot of items to be useful. In either case, work to top the values shown here to do well.
