Zilean vs Fiddlesticks Counter Stats Summary

The stats shown here feature some valuable Zilean against Fiddlesticks counter stats that may help us appreciate the differences and similarities between the two. Zilean’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 2.8 is greater than Fiddlesticks’s KDA ratio of 2.4, indicating that Zilean may be more central to his team's team fighting effectiveness than Fiddlesticks.

Zilean usually has a significant smaller longest kill spree than his counter does. Typically, Zilean takes less damage than Fiddlesticks. This often reflects differing health capacities, but it can also illustrate that the champ with more health has less mobility and thus is not able to kite away from further harm when engaged or poked.

Zilean often takes a bit more CS than Fiddlesticks. Champions that don't acquire very much CS normally do not need much CS to be effective. Instead, they are capable of scaling easily off of their abilities alone. However, champions with scores of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically require a lot of items to be useful. In either situation, try to do better than the averages displayed here to do well.
