“Ziggs outranges Zoe and can easily poke her with his bombs. Try to hit him when he's vulnerable and be careful of his bombs! ”
“He has really high poke but is squishy. Dodge his poke and go in with e when given the opportunity. ”
“Don't see ziggs much but he is pretty easy to deal with. Only way this lanes really an issue is if you get hit by all of the poke he throws at you which is pretty simple to dodge as long as you don't clump with the minions because his Q is a lot easier to dodge out of the wave. Don't dash into his mine field and dash out of the middle of his ulti to not get hit by the max damage of it. You can also windwall infront of him during an all in to try to deny him the satchel escape.”
“Ziggs' base dmg is really fking high so if he hits 2 Qs early you're already 60% hp, so obviously not getting hit by his poke is key in this matchup. Dont stand near minions because his Q aoe explodes on minions so it's way easier for him to hit you. All ins aren't that easy too cuz of his knockup when you go in, but you can still do a fairly decent amount of damage by just standard trade comboing him and once you have Bork/Wits end you can probably look to perma kill him aswell. So just make sure you survive his early high dmg poke. Also dont roam too much vs a ziggs or he will take ur inhibitor tower in 15 mins. ”
“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.
“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”
“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.”
“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.”
“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 can stop your ultimate with his E and poke you. Annoying matchup. Try to scale and punish his mistakes.”
