DH5: 062 -Teemo, The Swift Scout
Better stay clear of those bushes, it's that mushroom dropping doom-bringer Teemo! shown here atop one of his nasty creations!
Teemo is a total punk. I've shown my distaste for him in Caveman Udyr Many times and I stand by my decision to dislike everything about him. How can this thing take a hit at all? A minion should be able to massacre this pipsqueak! he's got a dumb little hat and a blow gun! I mean seriously! In all seriousness I see the draw the small guy has being cute and all but I'm just a fan of the meaner and goofier champs myself. I have never been a fan of these Yordle characters, I'm hoping that the lore takes a dark turn and they become a delicious main food group to all three kingdoms and that will be the end of them.
In game Teemo can be a real mess. I've played against one that I swear had over a hundred mushrooms down on the map and could 1v1 anyone without an exhaust. Damage or hybrid seems to be able to stay deadly and as long as he stays out of any clutches of enemy champions he can deal out some pretty serious damage. Luckily when you finally do grab him he vaporizes like Kleenex. I remember when you'd get gold for killing his mushrooms so at around midgame, your ranged carry would go "Mushroom farming" and buy an oracles and clear the map of enemy shrooms while making tons of money. Anyone a fan of this fierce little fighter? Then blowgun in your comment below!
