Viktor usually has a much larger longest kill spree than his counter does. Commonly, Viktor takes a similar amount of damage to Sona. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also hint that the one champ has less mobility and thus is not able to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

In Viktor vs Sona matchups, Viktor typically tallies much more CS than Sona. Champs that do not acquire much CS normally don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale easily off of their abilities alone. However, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either case, work to pass the values displayed here to do well.
