There needs to be a harder limit to how many of these can be placed at any time. 3 of these in some brush can kill almost anyone early on, and it's easy for Shaco to leave clusters of these all over the map. Free kills when he's not even present seems hardly fair.

Lets toughen up the cap on Teemo's mushrooms too.

Nevermind the fact that Jacks only last a minute and a half, meaning that if he places one nest, he probably won't have another. With Max CDR they're on a 10 second cooldown, meaning that if he places 3, the first one has a minute left.

You'd be hard pressed to find a hero that could be killed with 3 early on. Sounds like you played vs an AP shaco, and got rolled. Heres some tips:

- Buy Vision wards and place them in high traffic brush.
- Stop running around in high traffic areas
- Get some MR
- Get some HP
- Pay attention to where Shaco is, he only stealths for 4 seconds, tough to lose.

If you counter his nests, you gimp his effectiveness, takes him 40-50 seconds to lay down a killing nest, taking him out of the fight for this long.

Yeah, that Decieve is not as effective as good shacos make it look...
Its basically just a flash with a 4 second stealth, not nearly as bad as Twitch or Eve...
And AP shacos dominate, however, debuff him before he hallus and you know which one is the real one (Slow him down, soul link, heck even targetting him reveals the real one if you can get it on him before he hallus... not sure if that's a glitch or not though, but it makes him manageable if you're smart)

Shaco's jack in the boxes have a 15 second cool down, and only lasts for 90 seconds.

"leaving stacks of these all over the map", is BS>
To be a AP jack in the box shaco, it takes thought of where to put these boxes.

There have been many times where iv laid traps, and by time someone got to the trap, 3 out of the 5 boxes died already.

Ehh, those boxes are decent, sure... 3 can kill you, if you stand close to them.
Stay away from the bush if he's planted them there, they only last 5 seconds, and later they do alot less damage.
You can't let yourself get set up like that, its like walking into a Teemo minefield, when you hit one... stop, and recall out if you're weak and there's allies nearby, odds are there's another shroom waiting to finish you off.
