Warwick usually has a similar longest killing spree as his foe does. Typically, Warwick takes more damage than Irelia. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness, but it can also illustrate that the champion with more health has less agility and thus is unable to flee from additional damage when poked or engaged.

In Warwick vs Irelia matchups, Warwick commonly racks up much less CS than Irelia. Champions that do not finish with many minion kills normally don't require much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling fully off their skills and stats alone. Yet, champions with plenty of CS, such as carries, usually require a lot of items to be useful. In either case, work to outperform the averages displayed here to do well.
