The changes were:
o Cooldown increased to 11 from 10
o Duration to 3.5 from 4 seconds
o Cooldown increased to 100/90/80 from 90/75/60
o Duration reduced to 18 from 30
o Guardian Angel no longer revives the clone although will apply the passive particle
· Backstab (passive) bonus damage reduced to 20% from 25%
· Two Shiv Poison no longer blinds the target
· Jack In The Box will now break stealth upon cast
The reason we did this was prompted in part by the fact he is banned in every ranked game pretty much, along with the fact that he's miserable to fight against in normal games.
There are some specific scenarios where we felt shaco was really frustrating to play against, or gets a free pass for no good reason.
1) Backdooring. We generally don't like backdooring, and Shaco is really good at it. By nerfing hallucinate duration and cooldown, we hit backdooring hard withou affecting other aspects of shaco as much.
2) No-risk ganking. The changes to deceive (duration & cooldown) are related to making it so that Shaco has to a greater extent choose if he is initiating or running. Being able to do both really well with impunity is just lame.
3) screwed-if-you-do-screwed-if-you-don't engagement -- When shaco appears 1v1, you can either run and die to backstab and chain slow, or stand and fight and lose to blind. If you win, he escapes for free. This is frustrating and lame for the defender, and we wanted to mitigate this so that Shaco has more of a chance of not winning and/or dying. The blind is superfluous and not necessary to make shaco an awesome champion, he already has so many other defensive tools between JITB, deceive and hallucinate.
4) JITB hard lock on gank -- Having Shaco show up from stealth and crit you for a bunch, then insta-fear you with a pre-placed JITB is really frustrating. It makes it so that if a jungle shaco is on the map, all lanes must play hyper conservatively until about level 10. Not fun at all, disrupts gameplay a lot and leads to your opposing team just not having a good time.
Guardian angel change we made just because it's not necessary for him to be good, or for GA to be desirable on him.
