Volibear usually has a slightly smaller longest killing spree than his opponent does. Typically, Volibear takes more damage than Xayah. This often reflects differing health capacities, but it can also hint that the champ with higher health has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from additional damage when engaged or poked.

Volibear commonly gets much less CS than Xayah. Champions that don't finish with a lot of minion kills usually do not need much CS to be effective. They are able to scale fully off of their abilities alone. Yet, champs with large amounts of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be effective. In either situation, work to exceed the values presented here to do well.
