Ziggs usually has a much larger longest kill spree than his opponent does. Commonly, Ziggs takes a similar amount of damage to Ivern. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also illustrate that the champion with more health has less agility and thus is not able to kite away from further damage when engaged or poked.

Ziggs often tallies much more CS than Ivern. Champions who on average don't amass a lot of minion kills typically do not have to have much CS to be useful. Instead, they are able to scale adequately off of their skills and stats alone. However, champions with large numbers of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either case, work to outperform the values displayed here to do well.
