[12.18] Challenger Teemo OTP COMPLETE GUIDE

By Alan234
12.14 Changes

In 12.14 Teemo gets buffed!

    Teemo Mana growth increased from 20 to 25 Noxious Trap
    (R) AP ratio increased from 50% to 55%
    (R) mana cost lowered from 75 to 75-35
    (R) cast range increased from 400-900 to 600-900

What does this mean for Teemo?

The mana regen and the dmg are not really noticeable in my opinion. The far more important part are the reduced mana costs and increased range.

1) Reduced mana costs now mean that Teemo can operate in the late game and spam shrooms even though he builds riftmaker. Previously we were dependant on getting a blue buff from our team, so this is pretty great

2) I cant find too many uses for the increases shroom throwing range, especially because you usually don't scout for vision or teamfight before lvl 11, but it is definitely nice to have and facechecks are easier. I'll have to check if there are funky double shrooms that you can do from far away to shroom tribush or something

Overall this is a buff to riftmaker Teemo and it will likely still be my main recommendation!

I am the best Teemo in EuW and 1.2k LP/top 33 EuW at my peak. I have reached challenger in multiple seasons playing only Teemo, so I will teach you how to play Teemo! The setup I recommend is used also approved by the best Teemo in NA, called yung_fappy


I explain every matchup on my youtube!,

Please check the notes on the runes, items, matchups etc. This is the major content of this guide and where you will learn the most, the sections below are only for additional information that can't be contained within the sections above

My biggest focus are the matchups in this guide. Knowing the matchup and how to play it is by the most important thing you need to know to climb.

If you want to climb, keep it simple. You can overthink Teemo a LOT, so even if the build isnt optimal in every scenario, it will be good and help you to focus on other parts of your gameplay. I recommend a single build, because then you don't waste your time/mental capacity on your build and you learn to know just how strong you are and what your limits are

To become a good player, you will need to learn auto spacing, wave management, jungle tracking and a lot of other skills. These are basic laning skills, but will be learned as you gain experience. I will just give you matchup specific advice, but if you are struggeling, its very likely that your fundamentals are weak and that you should look into micro/macro related guides.
Pros and Cons
+ Fun and satisfying
+ Legitimately very strong right now, sort of free elo
+ Lane bully
+ Good control/vision for your team
+ Decent splitpusher
+ Blows up squishies
+ Can build anything/ Can use any rune
+ Gets into your opponents head and gives you mental edge
+ Good at learning mechanics.
+ Good at learning how to kite.
+ Good at learning to CS properly.
+ You can always cheese and get back into the game

- Dies to CC
- Has no hard CC.
- Global taunt -> Gets ganked all the time
- Your teammates hate you and the enemies even more
- Requires item, rune and matchup knowledge
- falls behind hard if he loses early
Advice on how to play Teemo

Advice #1: Track the enemy jungler and ward accordingly

You WILL get ganked if you push so learn where the jungler starts, where he is on the minimap and where he could go. If you don't ward correctly and play waves accordingly it's very likely that you die. As Teemo you are a pressure soaker, so if you don't get the enemy jungle top and make your botlane win, you are doing something wrong.

Advice #2: Be alpha

From experience I can say that the movement of a lot of lower elo players is terrible, you will get a ridiculous amount of harass off, allowing you to win matchups you should have no business winning. Against a lot of champs with a few defensive items early and lvl 6+ Ignite you will win their all in. So stand your ground, fight them and throw your shrooms into the wave when the enemy engages to force them to eat dmg. I would always go for fights when learning Teemo, because else you don't learn your limits and you cant improve as a player. Teemo is a champ that only exists to deal damage! So deal as much damage as you can!

Advice #3: Push - and get the enemy jungle

In low elo after killing the tier 1 tower you should control the enemy jungle with shrooms and clear his camps. The combined xp+gold lead will often solowin you the game. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE just how much gold and xp you get over the enemy and how hard you get ahead.

Advice #4: Use your shrooms in choke points or throw them into waves

People take insane damage running through your Noxious Trap in the jungle. Often times during chases a random shroom can mean a kill or an escape. Choke points mean that the enemy cant easily randomly dodge your shroom, as he could in lane for example. When the enemy is pushing, you can often just throw a shroom into the wave and they all take ridiculous amounts of damage, often stopping a push. WIth a level 1 ult it is usually better to shroom off gank paths or to push waves (1 shroom + 1 auto-attack kills backline, 1 lvl 2 shroom + Liandry's Anguish one shots backline)
Protip: At baron nashor fights you can bounce your shrooms to get shrooms in the pit even if your original range isn't enough.

Advice #5: Use this one trick to win any game, no matter how lost

Okay this is literally the crux of my guide and a trick that works even in challenger. You simply push a wave, make sure the enemy has no vision on you and then place 2 shrooms in the lane. You then go into stealth and wait for a target. With Liandry's Anguish, lvl 11 Noxious Trapand Ignite you can oneshot basically any squishy target. I have won countless games due to 1k shutdowns on aphelios, picks that give us baron or picks that force a teamfight to win us the game. With this super simple trick you can actually win so many games its sort of stupid.

Advice #6: Have fun

I would not have gotten to this point if I didn't love this game. If you don't think you will get enjoyment out of Teemo, don't play him. I'm not going to get out the "its only a game" argument, however it is true that you will only climb and improve your gameplay if your mental is in the right place
