This game was actually really funny, because Obscene Tangerin was like “Oh no, who is going to lane against Darius top?” I simply replied, “This is a job for: Super Teemo!” Then poor Obscene got stuck mid against the bird and she wrecked him. However, this game still had some highlights!
Darius went ham on me really early in this game and I just started to cry on the inside because I knew that if he could drop his ignite and auto me one more time I would die. Instead of killing me he flashed away. I guess he was scared I had a nasty trick up my sleeve, which I didn’t! I just got away with my life! If I would have given up first blood to Darius I would have been so sad!
The lane pushed back and forth. I noticed that Darius wanted to dive me when the lane pushed into tower. Pantheon actually came top when I was extremely low, but I was stealthed under my turret. I farmed the rest of those creeps out and then recalled. I decided that with good ward coverage and my recent mushroom crop I could defend myself effectively in top lane from Pantheon ganks. I was going to push so I wasn’t forced to last hit under tower. This proved to be the best strategy. Now Darius was using mana to last hit under his turret because every chance I got I would blind him. He soon dropped from full health down to less than 1/3. He couldn’t stay in lane! However, Darius naturally can push faster than a Teemo before level six because I don’t have any AoE abilities. I think I may still try to push Darius to his tower in future games, just so he’s forced to play back. I do have an easier time hitting creeps until level three because he can’t afford to go all in on me. I’ll keep that in mind for future games.
Pantheon finally came to gank. I saw him walking up lane and saw where he started to channel his ult. I sprinted back to my turret and out of his range. However, his escape route was mushroom infested. Vi was in top lane coming to counter gank. As soon as Pantheon went to walk into river he knew he had done something wrong. Boom. The sound of a mushroom popping. The sound of a trap tripping. The sound of death! I started to get excited and just yelled, “Vi, kill him!” Vi pounced on him immediately and threw her ult down. With an auto attack or two from me we finished Pantheon off. That’ll teach him!
We could never decide if we wanted Twisted Fate to split push so we could apply pressure in two lanes, or if we needed Twisted Fate with us in team fights. Eventually we managed to siege towers anyway, picked up a Baron and pushed into the enemy base. Anivia with Homeguard boots is kind of a joke. I had a great chance to watch Vi beating down on Pantheon as he tried to escape. I helped out by pressing Q once and taking the kill from Vi, only to watch her die shortly afterwards. I’m Teemo, I’m meant to be hated, it’s part of my character!
I didn’t realize how fed I was until I caught Ezreal running to his base, DFG’d him, auto attacked and shot him once with Blinding Dart to kill him. My Blinding Dart did proc my Lich Bane, which did significant damage, plus bonus because of DFG. He tried to cleanse, but there was nothing to cleanse. It all happened so fast.
The game didn’t feel this close, but at least we came out with the win.
