I was honestly expecting a CD reduction at later levels to go with the damage nerf he took awhile back, but I apparently underestimated how much they intended to **** on the little guy.
Teemo still brings godly utility and jungle control by having basically free wards, and the ability to stall in the jungle while he isn't there/or is dead. he also strongly shuts down auto-attackers. his shroom traps are now more on the level of manageable nuisance, instead of impenetrable minefield of death.
Nome originally was going to have the new items reveal hidden traps that were still in the brush too, he held back from dropping that hammer on the little yordle... you got off easy.
Teemo is back into the realm of strong, but counterable. Sauron may take him off the cheesecake tier and put him high on the A tier.
He had a long reign of terror, and most people are not sad that it is over.
