“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”
“A standard poke mage with very little to keep you off him. He's squishy, immobile, and has damage easy to dodge/cancel. Take the Resolve page and MR.”
“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.
“dodge all of his skillshots and hard engage. super squishy should be easy kill. ”
“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.”
“If he lands his E behind you, he will probably try to rush you, try to R away but if you can't you have a chance of hitting your E and getting away or killing him.”
“His poke is annoying but that's about it. Try to match his push with your W to prevent him from damaging your tower too much. Get early boots to dodge his poke.”
“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.”
“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. ”
“He's got very good waveclear which hinders you but his poke is ignorable once you get some AP.”
