Zac typically has a similar longest kill spree as his foe does. On average, Zac receives more damage than Lux. This typically indicates differing health capacities, but it can also illustrate that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

Zac usually tallies less CS than Lux. Champs that do not acquire a lot of minion kills typically do not need much CS to be effective. They are able to scale easily off their skills and stats alone. However, champs with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to exceed the values shown here to do well.
