“See Velkoz. Same thing but he has a better escape, try not to take too much poke and look for hooks so you can all in.”
“Corrupting Potion because Intensive Poke and sustain is heavily needed. Biscuits MIGHT work too but I'd rather have Minion Dematerializer.
In Long Range Mages Matchups you have to try to understand their Q pattern and where they will cast it. They would generally want to either poke
you down to kill you or shove you out of the lane, but the matchup is not really impossible if you get boots and try to get close to them for a nice combo.Ziggs has the most oppressive wave clear with Q/E/R and he will demolish your towers if you roam too much, so create a balance. Allow him to take your tower only if you gank and get THEIR tower first on bot or top. Careful for Ziggs W, he can INSEC you and setup ganks for his jungler.
Try to be as non predictable as possible.
Get Minion Dematerializer.
Post 6 try to either get close on them with your ult and outplay with flash OR roam
bot faster than them and get kills. They will follow with their long range abilities but by the time they actually do something meaningful you should have sealead
the deal. This matchup is all about roaming and learning how to
properly dodge his poke on lane. It is okay if you do not get kills, but it is not ok to get killed especially since he cannot 100-0 you unless he's super fed.
“Ziggs skill shots are very predictable so you have to be a little more light foot for this matchup. Try to not sit on top of minions. Try to get into a halfway point of Ziggs so you can get a nice charm. He is pretty dead if you get a charm off, especially past 6. Look for all ins or even jungle assistance due to his low mobility.”
“In this matchup it's crucial to understand how Ziggs Q works. It has bigger explosion radius, than "trigger" radius. That means that if he blows it up on minion, you might get damaged, which is how Ziggs mostly tries to harass you, but if you stand isolated from your minions, it should be fairly easy to avoid his Qs, because it literally has to jump on your face, to make it blow. Don't be too greedy and don't go into face to face all in trade, because thats where he can kite you over his mine field and finnish you off with his ult. Abuse the fact, that your skillshots are a bit more reliable than his ones.”
“Keep in mind Ziggs can ult botlane when he is in the river.”
“Just worse Vel and Xerath, he has a harder time keeping you away as he escape is not good enough most of the time. A good Ziggs can make it feel bad but at least its not a good Xerath. Keep away from roams as he can decimate your tower. ”
“Ziggs is easy but very tedious to lane against due to his strong Q poke, waveclear from his E, and the fact that he can knock you away with his W. Try to dodge his skillshots and do not let him free push, since he clears towers very fast. Also, make sure to NOT stand in the center when he ults since it deals the most damage.”
“LOP: LOT OF POKE.
He will play just to poke and make you recall to destroying your tower.
ALL in him and kill him.”
“Very very easy match up if you can dodge all of his Q's. He will most likely use his W to keep distance between you and him when you go in with your W. But if you manage to get your chain onto him whilst going in to him you should be able to out-trade him no matter what. Rinse and repeat. Same at level 6, using your chains will keep him from going anywhere.”
“pretty easy match up, he is squishy in early so you can 1shot him with your flash ult combo. you can play aggressive against him”
