A serious lack of Teemo lately.
After almost a year of seeing Teemo in 9 out of 10 games you hardly see him anymore. Truly a most glorious revelation and step forward into making Dominion a better place.

I'm not sure what happened that caused him to vanish completely, but I certainly hope it stays that way!

The new lightbringer/hextech sweeper change suddenly made players require some skill to play Teemo.

Before, you could just build AP, plant a ton of shoorms, stay out of sight, wait until people die by running over them.

Now Teemo players cannot just sit back since we now have an effective way of seeing them (revealing mist can only do so much). Since shrooms now require strategic placement and Teemo must now be part of fights to be useful, people decided that that is too much work for them and moved on.

...Something tells me that I am going to see a lot more Darius in my games now...
*sigh* People will always try to find new ways to maximize their chances of winning. Everything short of just becoming better players. Those who actually try to become better players...well, they're at high elo right now.

If Teemo finally becomes more balanced, I might even start picking him up again. I may play Cheesecake tier champions every once in awhile so I know how to use them when I need to (say, if i ever join a DD tournament), but I don't want to win all of my games in such a cheap manner.

Wukong is different. I genuinely love Wukong and he (and Karma) were the first two champions I considered my mains.

I just use Jayce. Cheesecake for everything, top, bottom, adc, brusier, tomato, tomata, etc.

I've noticed that since the LB/Htech changes the replacement for teemo at my tier of play has been heimer, which is perfectly reasonable to me as I main Malz and those juicy little turrets just make it so i don't have to cast my DoT as much.

Good news about Teemo, but I'm even more happy that I can now build something useful with bonus of revealing Akali in her stupid circle.

What? Sweeper is nowhere near as effective against Akali as it used to be, and Lantern's been nerfed.
