Maybe its just been me but for the last 2 or 3 weeks I have seen a teemo is almost ever game I have been in SR and TT. All i really want to know is why has he become so popular again?

You're prolly still low ELO. Teemo is a terrible team fight player and therefore isn't chosen at competitive play or 1.7k ELO+. Teemo is an easy to play champions that takes no skill whatsoever meaning that people can pull of easy kills with him. But later in higher elo it is very easy to counter him.

Teemo is good. He has some special synergy with certain items that make him very difficult to deal with. Teemo has always been popular because he is adorable. Maybe you're just encountering more teemos because of rng in queues lol.

Also, teemo isn't a low elo champion....and he does take skill to use well. I don't really play much of him but there is no such thing as a no skill champion. He is a great split pusher who excels at dueling autoattackers and giving chase when he's in the advantage. He is situational but with a team that can disengage from any sort of 4v5 fight (janna, trundle, sona) he can murder the cs score and push all day safely.

i dont see him often but i do kinda like him...because i like the map vision and stuff that mushrooms can give...but i dunno where he really belongs in lanign phase...i think hes a weak ADC, and hes likely to feed in mid and top. If the laning phase could be jsut skipped id think hes a great champ

Nah, he sucks. No offense, but he needs to be played REALLY well just to be played decently.

That's because he's very easy to play in low rating/normal games. Simply buy AS and AP and profit.

I think he got a buff on his E at some point. I main Teemo and always played him as AD/on-hit, then I stopped playing him for awhile and now he is played as AP. When I mained him he was NEVER played as AP, it was considered trolling to do so.

The E was a bug fix. Used to be, the DoT on his poison would reset every hit, which meant when he shot anything faster that once per second, the additional poison wouldn't start until he stopped attacking. It's fixed now, so the DoT poison ticks every second while he's attacking, not just after he stops.
