Teemo definitely has advantages that other champions doesn’t really bring to the game. However, there is one large draw-back to playing Teemo; the global taunt. Time and time again in this game I would have someone on the other team drop what they were doing and come to kill me. Luckily, it took at least 3 people on the other team to have to gank me, which took a lot of pressure off of other lanes. I actually killed Jax twice before level 6. I was so far ahead that LeBlanc had to come up from mid to swap lanes, and we traded kills.
We never really could stick to lanes; Sion and I kept lane-swapping to keep our obvious advantages. Little did we know Miss Fortune was becoming a Miss Monster!
Our lead dwindled into nothingness. My split pushing wasn’t paying off. I had managed to take bottom and middle inhibitor once I had my LichBane, but we weren’t able to get to Miss Fortune in team fights, so she was deading all of us. Our spirits were low. We could control parts of the map with mushrooms, but oracles were prevailing for the other team, combined with Banshee’s Veil. We had a prolonged team fight where we were able to get three easy kills by dragging the enemy team through a field of mushrooms up near Baron and top lane. Still unable to close out the game.
After one team fight, Jax and Nunu were pushing our base. Our chances of winning this game looked bleak. We honestly thought they would take our base in this push. After taking middle inhibitor they swung to bot and tanked the bottom inhibitor turret. We managed to get a kill, and we kited them long enough for Sion to come back up and get another kill. Death timers were up over a minute, and each death felt like a loss.
We were in a constant state of panic. We were too afraid to team fight, and too afraid of getting caught by Miss Fortune. Luckily, the game went long enough that four people on my team had oracles, so no wards could stay on the map for very long. I decided to try to catch the other team when they would go for their blue. We sat and waited. We saw them grouped mid, so we took a chance. We sprinted up towards their bot lane inhibitor. With two LichBanes and about 700 Ability Power on both APs we dropped it in seconds. We rushed the last standing Nexus turret. It fell almost instantly.
Then something magical happened. The enemy team had recalled and they came pouring out around their Nexus. I wanted to keep attacking the Nexus, but I knew my fate. Their whole team was affected by the global taunt of Teemo. I started to run, but they wouldn’t let this squishy bunny rabbit escape. I was melted by a full LeBlanc combo. We finished off the Nexus followed by several “gg”s in team chat. The game was over, finally, and somehow we had managed to win.
This game was such a miracle because we couldn’t beat that Miss Fortune, and we lost almost every team fight that we had. Hurray for back-dooring!
