Captain Teemo on Duty!
Teemo is one of the most played champions in LoL. What makes him so popular? Here are some reasons why 롤듀오:
He’s Cute and Cuddly
When you look at him, he reminds you of a cute cuddly soft toy you would have when you go to bed.
A well-built Teemo can really own in LoL ranked games if built right. There are a couple of builds that you can use for him, depending on your opponents. I build him using 4 methods depending on the situation. They are:
AP – Building him utilizing his ability power and on hit effects are the best way to go. Items that I recommend are Nashor’s Tooth, Sorcerer’s Shoes, Zhyona’s Hourglass, Frozen Mallet and Abyssal Scepter.
AD – Going the attack damage route utilizes his attack speed. You will want to stack attack damage items. I would recommend Infinity Edge, Statik Shiv/Phantom Dancer, Runaan’s Hurricane and Bloodthirster. Maw of Malmortious works as well if you need some magic resist. This route will diminish the damage of your mushrooms though.
Jungle – Teemo doesn’t get used as a jungler often, but if you do try it, start off with Wriggle’s Lantern, Berserker’s Greaves, Frozen Mallet and Atma’s Impaler. If you find yourself getting nuked down by burst AP champions, get Maw of Malmortious.
Tank – Tank Teemo is surprisingly effective if you know how to kite well. Items that you want to get would be Frozen Mallet, Ninja Tabi, Sunfire Cape, Atma’s Impaler and Mercurial Scimatar.

When you have Jessica Nigri doing Teemo’s cosplay, you know he is popular.
Teemo Fan-made Songs
There are actually some really huge Teemo fans making songs specifically for him. You can find them on YouTube if you type in “Captain Teemo Song” or “It’s Teemo and I Know it”
A Game Made After Him
There is game made for Teemo as part of an april fool’s joke. It is call Astro Teemo. So basically, you play him in space as you have to fly through obstacles and avoid Lux’s laser, Ashe’s frost arrow and fire walls. Getting hit by any of these means a dead Teemo.
With popularity comes hate as well. Due to his ultimate Noxius Traps, where it slows everyone and damages them. The problem is that you cannot see them unless you get a true sight ward or Oracle’s elixir. That is why in public games, you so so much hate for him.
