Rumble’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.4 is similar to Karthus’s KDA ratio of 2.4, indicating that Rumble may be just as central to his team's team fighting potential than Karthus.

Rumble normally has a slightly larger longest killing spree than his foe does. Commonly, Rumble receives a similar amount of damage to Karthus. This often reflects different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also hint that the champion with higher HP has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from additional damage when poked or engaged.

Rumble usually takes a similar amount of CS than Karthus. Champs who on average do not earn a lot of minion kills typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale adequately off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with plenty of minion kills, such as carries, usually need a lot of gold to be effective. In either case, work to do better than the averages displayed here to do well.
