Pink wards OP, can only be countered by other pink wards

It's gawddamn Flash all over again Riot!

But yeah, old Oracle's was basically GG if the team which had it was a bit ahead.

Before, though, wards weren't given out as free items.

I don't think restoring Oracle's would fix much though, since it would go back to "Your team is ahead, JUNGLER/SUPPORT GET ORACLE'S NOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU" and teams slowly losing because they can't dare to get farm or objectives for high elo. This current problem requires a different solution.

Vision allows for intelligent play.

Lack of vision promotes sitting huddled up in a bush and waiting for a face check...

One of these seems a lot more fun...

Really just replacing Elixir with extract on SR would address much of the balance issues that caused Oracles to be nerfed in the first place.

Causing the towers to reveal a greater range to the sides would also be a good solution. Admittedly it means counterjungling would be harder to do, but it would mean greater importance on the tower's protection as it is the source of revealing x amount of the nearby forest and helping that safety. I don't propose that it should reveal river because ganks still need to be a thing, but towers revealing at least some of your own turf forest seems like a good idea, as it also means the support can spend their money on items rather than constant wards.

They just need to make oracles cheaper to compensate for the shorter duration, or maybe they could make a champ or permanent item that has some way to reveal wards for a short duration on a like 60 seconds cooldown (kinda like how Nid's traps used to work)

they raised the price on sightstones and increased the gold return to make oracles semi feasible again.
