Vi vs Riven Counter Stats Summary

As an example, Vi’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.3 is greater than Riven’s ratio of 1.9, demonstrating that Vi may be more central to her team's team fighting potential than Riven.

Vi often has a similar longest kill spree as her counter does. On average, Vi receives a similar amount of damage to Riven. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also indicate that the one champ has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from further harm when poked or engaged.

In Vi vs Riven matchups, Vi usually tallies many fewer minion kills than Riven. Champs that don't get much CS normally don't need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling adequately off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champs with many minion kills, such as carries, usually require a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to top the values presented here to do well.
