League of Legends: Teemo

League of Legends: Teemo

By: Andrew (Jungtaek) Hong

League of Legends, a MOBA game, has many different characters to choose from, one character is Teemo. Teemo excels at being a literal piece of crap during early game. He has the ability to poke with his poison, place down many “landmines” on the map at once, and just being a very annoying champion. However, Teemo has almost no mobility, so when caught off guard Teemo will almost always die. However, if the attacker is someone who relies on auto attacking, Teemo can survive, as one of his abilities can prevent people from auto attacking for a bit.

This relates to programming because many engineers had to program the character to even function, and other people had to properly design Teemo as to fit into this game without completely breaking the balance of other characters.
