lol, no i didn't just play. I've only been playing a week or so, and I am on forums coz of EU downtime. I''ve been wanting to ask this for days though, so, perfect time.
Going against Teemo in lane is just soooo expensive, you gotta have healthpots, you just do, if you can;t sacrafice some HP every now and then your just not going to get anything done.
And the "X" elixir shuts down the stealth problem, but its 400G every time you go down.
and of course, all of that is just so you can stay alive against him! you haven't even started winning yet...
