how to play as fiddlesticks?
I find fiddlesticks pretty hard to play.
Early game: i can farm very well in jungle and sustain, but to gank he has no gap closer and if i try to get in ranger for terrify they have already walked off. If i try to initiate gank with R ill br near them for a second and they still manage to walk off.
1v1ing: fiddlesticks usually has sustained damage rather than burst so ill Q E W them and they just walk off unless they think they can win and i just cant stop that occuring.
Mid game: im usually unfed by then so ill see team rights, R in use hourglas to stop focus then THEY JUST WALK AWAY
the whole problem is managing to either keep near them to hit Q and hopefully do any damage within 3 seconds to kill or have to give up.
What am i doing wrong?

I wouldn't get comfortable with fiddles jungle. They were talking about how season 4 is going to hurt fiddles jungle.

Ganking: You're gonna always ALWAYSSS need flash. To gank, remember to max your fear (Q) first, so they cant move, then ult them WHILE they are feared, for example; If ganking bot lane, ult, then flash towards the ADC, then FEAR the adc, and silence the support with your E.
In team fights: Your ult will be doing a shit ton of damage (enough for you to get pentakills), especially if you are fed. I also had the problem where they just walk away from your ult, so fix the problem DONT ZHONYA UNLESS YOU GET FOCUSSED. If you ult into a team fight, DO NOT ACTIVATE YOUR ZHONYA UNLESS THEY ARE TRYING TO KILL YOU. I repeat, do NOT zhonya unless you start taking major damage. If they are running away, chase them down dude, flash to them, whatever you can to do the maximum amount of damage. Remember, all you actually need is about 300 AP, then you can kill anyone, as long as you have your drain. Spell vamp is a great thing to get on fiddlesticks. Also, make sure to land your fear on the enemy adc, . Your ult does about 400 AP damage per second (at level 16) for 5 seconds. So, the enemies main damage dealer will be out of the fight entirely. If the enemy team's main damage dealer is NOT the adc, then fear that person, like the jungler, or whomever hurts your team.
Against Fiddlesticks: If you are going against a Fiddllesticks, just ignite or silence him. His main damage dealer other than his ult, is his drain, which has a short cooldown. Ignite puts grevious wounds on the enemy champ reducing healing effects, making Fiddlesticks' drain USELESS. Also, you can stop his ult with a silence or a displacement. Like a knock-up, grab, throw, taunts ETC. If the enemy team has a fiddlesticks, the way to know you're gonna get ganked by him is HIS PASSIVE. To know he's in the area, look out for this:
His passive reduces your magic resist by 10, making you more vulnerable to magic damage. If you ever see that icon by your HP bar, start running, cause that means fiddlesticks is coming in for a gank. Also, stay far apart from each other, his E silences and bounces. If it hits you once and comes back to you, it will do even more damage than it did before. So if you see a crow going towards you, do your team a favor and walk away from them.
On level 1, start drain, then silence, then fear. Max the fear first, then your drain. Never max your E first. That's what you get last.

I wanna go into what jason said, instead of just buying zhonya when you get focused, buy it all the time. It is his main item. It is made for him. You must rush it.
