Might as well ask why all the hate for Eve and not Shaco.


Shaco is relativity useful to the team.

Probably because there is some hate around for Shaco, but only because of how buggy he is and how not-good-after-like-level-9 he is.


only bad shacos

im sorry you cant appreciate the usefulness of a carry who can create a close-enough-to-full-damage clone who also triggers on-hit item effects (bloodrazor).

Aye. Shaco is a very strong backdoor, for instance. On the other hand, he doesn't bring a lot to teamfights.

shaco with 1.5 attack speed (which is an underestimate, just assuming you only have bloodrazor) and a bloodrazor can deal 12% of max HP damage per second from JUST bloodrazor damage.

Sunfire Shaco with just 2 sunfire capes becomes very tanky and brings a consistent 160 damage per second AoE from just sunfire capes.

Late game, a shaco with 3 Sunfires, Bloodrazor, and Abyssal Scepter can wreck team fights almost solo.

People just rush infinity edge (or worse, build for AP - lol), burst down one guy to 60% HP and promptly get focused and die and then think Shaco sucks in teamfights because they can't build for something other than the typical physical DPS right click win.

If I recall, Shaco's clone has a seperate sunfire field, doesn't it?

Shaco is bull**** on TT, doesn't ever die, backdoors like a champ, can solo dragon in seconds at level 6, greatly disrupts teamfights with sunfire clone and aoe fear, can chase down almost everything, can towerdive, burns down towers in instants, can safely 1v1 a lot of champions, has a high dmg ranged nuke that slows.

Is there anything he can't do?

While all Akali brings is decent single target burst.

Akali has some utility, reliable damage, and doesn't rely on someone not buying oracles to be successful.

Shaco doesn't rely on stealth, and if he uses deceive to escape then oracle isn't going to help you.

If you had to compare Akali to another champion, why Evelynn? Katarina is far more similar.
