You easily out range his ability  and able to stop him from getting close to stun you . 

You can also stop his Teamfight capability by throwing minefield or satchel charge on his path to the objective if he was using his flying ability with + his skill 1.

Ziggs

Ziggs - artillery Mage

Ziggs as a midlaner excel on poking down enemy with his ability 

He is also a very great objective figther , He can easily take down towers , control the access to Objectives (By Spamming ability at choke points / throwing mine fields to close a choke point) He can also bombard teams who are taking objective from long range like in the video . Easily pick them off if they clump together . 

Ziggs as of right now , is one of the best mages ingame to push rank / or to play at the competitive scene , he brings alot of damage , poke , objective power and also zoning capability . Not only that , he is also one of the best champion to use in conjuction with the meta champion combos right now , Example : Cammile + ziggs , Jarvan + ziggs , Camille+ galio + ziggs , Nami + ziggs , and many more . The ability to  easily combo with alot of the champions make him a powerfull teamfighter on top of his already damage overloaded kit .

His weakness however is the lack of mobility that he has , and the only ability to stop the enemy from his are only flash and his Skill 2 . He also bad at roaming or following other midlaner roams , the only reason a ziggs roam is an enemy sidelaner has low health and is executeable with your ult , or if your teammates such as youre jg  are converging to dive / gank , you can help them by throwing ult to chunk the enemy making your jungler ganks way more effective.

You need to know when to freeze and fast push your wave , Freezing your wave makes you able to poke the enemy making them ganked easily or forcing them to not last hit the minion . The weakness of this is that the enemy midlaner can roam / fake roam and it will force you to make a decision of keeping the freeze (gambling if the enemy midlaner is fake roaming / or they fail their roam) or break the freeze and follow their roam . Following enemy midlaner roams is however the worst thing ziggs can do since he has no mobility to escape if the enemy midlaner turn around or if you get caught and ganked in the river .

You can also fast push your wave making them not able to roam and also pressuring them everytime they try to take last hit minion even under tower , the weakness of this is that you can be ganked by enemy jungler . 

When to freeze and when to fast push comes down to your ability to get information and vision abot your surrounding lanes / enemies and also what matchup you have in the midlane . 

Easy explanation for it is , if its a mage matchup you freeze , if its a assasin you fast push , if the enemy jungler is a agressive jungler you freeze , if enemy jungler is not an aggresive jungler champ (Amumu / shyvana) you fast push .  All this however is just a simplification , youll be able to determine when to freeze or fast push the longer you play midlane / or ziggs .

You also need to put defensive wards instead of deep wards as a ziggs , since defensive wards for ziggs has more worth than information u get from putting deep ward where only your sidelaners can capatalize . ( Defensive ward = wards around midlane to stop enemy from roaming and kill you) ( Deep wards = wards deep in enemy territory to gain information that can be used to play agressively ).


INDONESIA TRANSLATION ( ignore if youre not indonesian) 

Ziggs sebagai midlaner unggul dalam mempoke musuh dengan skill nya

Dia juga objective fighter yang sangat hebat, Dia dapat dengan mudah menjatuhkan tower, mengontrol akses ke Tujuan objective (Dengan kemampuan Spamming di choke point/ atau melempar Hexplosive MinefieldHexplosive Minefield untuk menutup choke point ) Dia juga dapat membombardir tim musuh yang mengambil objective dari jarak jauh.

 Ziggs sampai saat ini, adalah salah satu mage terbaik untuk push rank / atau bermain di setting kompetitif, kit dia  membawa banyakdamage, poke , kekuatan di objektif dan juga kemampuan zoning. Tidak hanya itu , ia juga merupakan salah satu champion terbaik untuk digunakan bersama dengan combo meta champion saat ini , Contoh : Cammile + ziggs , Jarvan + ziggs , Camille + galio + ziggs , Nami + ziggs , dan masih banyak lagi . Kemampuan untuk combo dengan mudah melalui ability Mega Inferno BombMega Inferno Bomb dengan banyak champion meta membuat ziggs menjadi Top pick .

 Namun kelemahannya adalah kurangnya mobilitas yang dia miliki, dan satu-satunya kemampuan untuk menghentikan musuh darinya hanyalah flash dan Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge miliknya. Dia juga buruk dalam roaming atau mengikuti roaming midlaner lainnya, satu-satunya alasan untuk ziggs mengroam adalah sidelaner musuh memiliki HP yang rendah dan dapat dieksekusi dengan ult Ziggs , atau jika rekan tim seperti jg sedang berkumpul untuk dive / gank, Anda dapat membantu mereka dengan melemparkan ult ke  musuh untuk mengchunk HP musuh membuat gank jungler Anda menjadi lebih efektif.

Anda perlu tahu kapan harus membekukan dan mendorong gelombang minion Anda dengan cepat, Membekukan gelombang membuat Anda dapat mempoke musuh dengan skill Bouncing BombBouncing Bomb secara mudah, membuat mereka dapat di  gank atau memaksa mereka untuk tidak meng last hit minion. Kelemahan dari hal ini adalah midlaner musuh dapat melakukan roaming / fake roam dan akan memaksa Anda untuk mengambil keputusan untuk tetap membekukan (berjudi jika midlaner musuh fake roaming / atau gagal dalam roamnya) atau break the freeze dan ikuti roam mereka . Mengikuti roam midlaner musuh adalah hal terburuk yang dapat dilakukan ziggs karena dia tidak memiliki mobilitas untuk escape jika midlaner musuh berbalik ke arah ziggs atau jika Anda tertangkap / digank di sungai oleh midlaner musuh dan jungler musuh.

 

Anda juga dapat mendorong gelombang Anda dengan cepat menggunakan skill Bouncing BombBouncing Bomb dan Hexplosive MinefieldHexplosive Minefield   sehingga mereka tidak dapat roaming dan juga menekan mereka setiap kali mereka mencoba mengambil last hit minion bahkan di bawah tower, kelemahannya adalah gampang digank oleh jungler musuh.

 Kapan harus membekukan dan kapan harus mendorong cepat tergantung pada kemampuan Anda untuk mendapatkan informasi dari vision map / musuh , vision di sekitar midlane dan juga champion matchup di midlane

 Penjelasan mudahnya adalah, jika itu matchup mage Anda dapat membeku lane, jika itu adalah assassin anda mendorong cepat, jika jungler musuh adalah jungler agresif Anda membekukan lane, jika jungler musuh jungler pasif(Amumu / shyvana) Anda dapat  mendorong lane  . Namun semua ini hanyalah penyederhanaan, Anda akan dapat menentukan kapan harus membekukan lane atau mendorong cepat dari experience bermain midlane / ziggs.

 Anda juga perlu menempatkan ward defensif bukan ward dalam sebagai ziggs , karena ward defensif untuk ziggs memiliki nilai lebih sebagai informasi  dibanding informasi yang Anda dapatkan dari menempatkan ward yang dalam di mana hanya sidelaner Anda yang dapat mengkapitalisasi informasi tersebut  . ( Defensive ward = ward di sekitar midlane untuk mencegah musuh roaming dan membunuhmu) ( Deep ward = ward yang berada jauh di dalam wilayah musuh untuk mendapatkan informasi yang bisa digunakan untuk bermain agresif ).

Ziggs

Teamfights and late game

In teamfights you have 2 things to do . Poke and Execute .

your skills alow you to easily poke down enemy from afar , and get a hp advantage while also stoping them to fight back with youre zoning abiltiy . This transfers to teamfight aswell , you can poke enemy in a teamfights and stop them from coming you with your skill 2 and 3 , making them reaching the backline hard . Ziggs excel on front to back fighting

Objective fights is easier since enemy are sometimes funneled through the many choke point from jungle , Clumping in the river or Clumping on the objective itself . A good posisitioning allow you to poke enemy from afar and making them having to pick on two hard decision : allow ziggs to poke or Spend resources to deal with ziggs poke . 

both decision is hard because of how much damage and zoning capability you have and how much enemy need to use to kill you , making the teamfight hard on the enemy team .

ziggs also is the best tower objective figther , can easily poke down tower to the point he can just satchel it later on . or down right destroy it.
