Wire rolls. you can craft wire rolls with 100 wires. you set it on point a and go to point b the wire will automatically go the shortest distance to point b and put the wire down. you can craft them in every wire colour. this would solve the wire placing problem.
i just made a long asphalt road. i can outrun him and if he starts to teleport to me i made 2 teleporters at the end of the road. he will never catch you and you can kill him with any kind of weapon. also his laser cant get you. he immediately stops using it if you teleport.
