AP Yi was not OP at all, nor was shaco. Both were nerfed and now I've yet to see them in any normal or ranked game. Dead champions now?

Sure hope so. I've personally still seen them a lot.

I haven't seen Shaco, but still see a few AP Yi's. I agree AP Yi wasn't OP. Shaco needed some adjustment. He was too strong early and fell off mid/late game. Typical Riot in nerfing them to undesirability though. Riot's champion balance tactic seems to go as follows: Release a mediocre or even bad champ(Vi, Thresh) because people will buy it no matter what. After a month or so buff him to OP status(Vi), more people will buy him. Later nerf him to uselessness(Rengar). Rinse and repeat.

Thresh is a god, people just don't know how to use him well yet

Seen a Shaco just the other day and that guy carried us. He played jungle but from the time he took red and blue, he didn't stop ganking. He just rolled from lane to lane killing over and over.

Sounds like everyone's gaming experience improved then.

There was nothing OP about AP Yi or Shaco.

But god did they make this game unenjoyable to play.

AP Yi is still good. He didn't need a nerf, but his nerf was 90% ineffective. Shaco, on the other hand, is dead as a door nail. I haven't seen any since the patch.

They actually never buffed Vi, just fixed her bugs. Shaco is still quite strong when it comes to early ganking. It seems as though I've been seeing him MORE after the patch. He just doesn't faceroll as hard in solo queue now. And ap yi needed his nerf. A 4.0 scaling AP ratio? Quite insane during laning phase, which is why he needed the nerf. His only counter was hard cc which most AP mids lack.
