Here's the biggest problem with trying to counter Teemo via item build: against other magic damage dealers you don't have to build MR, you can instead try to focus them down in a team fight. With Teemo, however, you never get that chance, because the moment you step into your jungle you're getting chunked by shrooms. If you try to gap close on Teemo, he lays a shroom and sprints away. If you run from Teemo, you hit another shroom, and get chunked again.
Teemo causes several imbalances on TT: he wards a map where you can't buy wards, he forces the opposing team to spend vast amounts on oracles, and he ignores positioning by dealing large amounts of magic damage from across the map. Furthermore, given the small size of the map, Teemo can easily shroom the entire jungle, rendering the entire jungle off limits for your team.
No other champion has the combination of map control and survivability that Teemo does on TT.
Considering I play mainly Ap burst with hard cc, I gloss over mr buy an oracles and laugh at teemo.As to beating bruiser comps again Hard cc, + health.
My normal anti teemo bruiser build for zyra/morde/lux. bft, sorc shooes, cap, Rylai's, abyssal, sweeper. Not in that order, that depends on enemy builds also.
Another point, oracles, huge anti teemo item. Bruisers really aren't all that hard to play against you just need to stay away, outside of gap closer's (flash, or cap it when they decided to hit ya up). You have many ways to counter bruisers as an ap.
I find it amazing that having to buy an oracles is found to be bull, when playing against a champion that has stealth or abilities like teemo's/shaco.
Stating this is really an invalid argument on your part. This is a plain and amusing attempt at saying omg foul teemo op i need to buy x to counter y.
Teemo is not OP or imbalanced on this map, I do not even play him. I play against him and have fun with it. Funny I do not see 50 threads concerning darius/singed or the other supposed OP champs. People found ways to play around them and against the.
