Twitch normally has a much larger longest killing spree than his opponent does. Commonly, Twitch takes a similar amount of damage to Karthus. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also show that the champ with increased HP has less mobility and thus is unable to escape additional damage when engaged or poked.
