In a game last night, Cho'Gath backdoored a few turrets. Backdooring isn't abusive, but when 3 people roll up on him (stacked hitpoints) he would immediately start using his teleport skill once he saw us. We were dropping bombs on him damage wise, but because teleport can't be interrupted he escaped - 3 times with < 100 hp.

Anyone else think this is really cheap?

Teleport used to be castable at any time, so people were using it anytime they got low in a fight. They fixed it so if there are enemies nearby, you cant port out. Just get closer before you let him see you I guess, I haven't seen anyone that is able to abuse it in the current iteration.

He or someone else on his team was using Clairvoyance to see us coming.

The teleport range thing doens't work. I tried it in the same game, and it let me do it no matter what. I was getting banged on (hero right next to me) and it let me do it.

I think as long as you start casting before someone hits you it lets it go. Just like can't cancel it yourself.

He's not talking about recall, he's talking about teleport, and it works very well for those who use it.

I agree that this should be interupted by damage. Twisted Fate's Gate ability as well. Its already a very good ability for moving around the map, it shouldnt be a save your life ability as well. Especially on a "egg" aniva or guardian angel revive, but I think I read something about them changing that.
