Zac often has a similar longest kill spree as his foe does. On average, Zac takes more damage than Azir. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also imply that the champ with increased health has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from additional harm when poked or engaged.

In Zac vs Azir matchups, Zac commonly racks up many fewer minion kills than Azir. Champs that don't acquire many minion kills typically do not require much CS to be effective. They are capable of scaling easily off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champions with large numbers of minion kills, such as carries, typically require a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to beat the values shown here to do well.
