Yorick often has a similar longest kill spree as his enemy does. On average, Yorick takes more damage than Orianna. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champion with increased health has less agility and thus is not able to escape additional damage when poked or engaged.

Yorick usually tallies a few more minion kills than Orianna. Champs who on average do not earn many minion kills usually don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling easily off their skills and stats alone. Yet, champions with plenty of minion kills, such as carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either case, work to beat the averages shown here to do well.
