Twisted fate normally has a similar longest kill spree as his opponent does. Commonly, Twisted Fate receives more damage than Malzahar. This often reflects differing health capacities, but it can also indicate that the champ with increased HP has less agility and thus is not able to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

Twisted Fate often earns fewer minion kills than Malzahar. Champions who on average do not earn a lot of minion kills usually don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale properly off their abilities alone. Yet, champs with plenty of CS, such as hyper-carries, usually need a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to outperform the values shown here to do well.
