Zac typically has a similar longest killing spree as his counter does. Commonly, Zac receives more damage than Skarner. This commonly reflects differing health capacities, but it can also indicate that the champion with increased HP has less mobility and thus is unable to escape additional harm when poked or engaged.

In Zac vs Skarner matchups, Zac commonly gets a similar amount of CS than Skarner. Champs who on average don't earn very much CS normally don't need much CS to be useful. Instead, they are capable of scaling easily off of their skills and stats alone.
