They nerfed his jack in the box range by 100, that doesn't even count as a sucker-punch nerf.
and why are people mad that they fixed the fact that he can place JitB's in walls anymore?

Some people will find a reason to be mad about anything.

Because placing Jitbs in walls was actually a beneficial bug = =""

And 100 range is QUITE a lot. Imagine if they nerfed Vlad's Q by 100 range...

Beneficial or not, bugs are bugs and need to be removed/fixed.
They nerfed the range on JitB because shaco users were abusing it, using it like it was an AoE fear skillshot rather than a ward-type.

LOL you're so funny. I agree that the bug should've been fixed. It made for some hilarious lulz when you feared someone and they couldn't stop it. But no. Jack in the box is NOT meant to be designed as a WARD. Even teemo SHROOMS can be used in battle. Jitb used as an AoE fear was a legit use. Honestly.... 100 range really doesn't matter in most cases... (1 stun and you can still land the jitb perfectly.....) Honestly.. I'm tired of Riot pigeonholing all creative use of spells so that they serve 1 specific purpose.

Oh and my evidence for why JitB was meant to be used as an AoE fear ganking tool? It used to be able to be used in stealth. The original intention was for Shaco to preplace the "ward" while deceiving in to gank.

Shaco's actually a very strong melee carry if you play him like Yi, considering he has CC, two spells which scale with his attack damage stats, and a very strong steroid spell. :V
