Playing Teemo often contributes to the kind of flaming that would leave a sensitive person in tears. if not tears then prepare to be red faced and dribbling on your keyboard in anger as someone swears at your `mother`.
It is understandable that playing against a Teemo would be frustrating. On the occasions I don’t play him (he is my main) and the opposing team does, I do rage, I do yell at my computer and focus all my hate on that little … cute fluffy bunny thing.
However playing him does not make that player toxic, I certainly don’t think that because they chose the fluffy yordle that they are only playing to ruin everyone else’s experiences. For one I don’t play him to ruin everyone else’s experience, although I am partial to a quick dance after a triple kill. Why do I play Teemo? I play Teemo because he is incredibly fun and no matter what the haters say, he does take a certain amount of skill to play him. There will always be a chance that whilst being flamed, one of the comments that appear will be regarding how `easy` Teemo is to use. URRRR WRONG ANSWER.
You have to work around when to use your poison, when to blind, when to run, when to disappear and a great map plan to place your shrooms. Its not easy… at all. He is NOT a beginners champ.
Lets look in to his Lore and see what makes him such an abominable Champ shall we?
“Teemo is a legend among his yordle brothers and sisters in Bandle City. As far as yordles are concerned, there is something just slightly off about him. While Teemo enjoys the companionship of other yordles, he also insists on frequent solo missions in the ongoing defense of Bandle City. Despite his genuinely warm personality, something switches off inside Teemo’s mind during combat so that the lives he must end while on patrol do not burden him. Even as a young recruit, the drill instructors and other trainees found it a little disconcerting that, while Teemo was normally charming and kind, he turned deadly serious and highly efficient the minute combat exercises began. Teemo’s superiors quickly steered him toward the Scouts of the Mothership, which is one of Bandle City’s most distinguished Special Forces unit alongside the Megling Commandos.
“While most yordles do not handle solo scouting missions with a great deal of finesse, Teemo is remarkably efficient at them. His record of success in defending Bandle City from infiltrators easily makes him one of the most dangerous yordles alive, though you’d never know it by having a cup of honey mead with him at his favorite inn. Bandle City chose Teemo as their first champion for the League, and he has taken to it like a duck to water. His signature weapon – a blowgun – uses a rare ajunta poison he personally gathers from the jungles of Kumungu. To help cope with his lengthy periods of isolation, Teemo recently struck up a friendship with Tristana, a fellow League champion and fellow member of Bandle City’s Special Forces. This connection is healthy for both yordles, though now Valoran’s voracious media outlets circulate rumors that the friendship is turning into a romantic relationship. Regardless, Teemo is a crowd favorite in the League of Legends, and a pint-sized foe that many have come to fear.
”Teemo rides a thin line between chipper compatriot and unrepentant killer, but there’s no one else I’d rather have as a friend.”
Wow he sounds horrible doesn’t he? Friendly and good at his job as well as skilled. Cor, I see why you all hate him. The biggest problem here is that these big, grown assed players find it insulting to be beaten by a little girl playing a little bunny.
