Yes, his kit is nice but no one goes near boxes to utilize his cc

You don't drop the boxes and hope people you run into them, you drop his boxes where people will run into them. This means you can drop them during team fights, to cut off their escape routes, give your team escape routes...

i don't know what's rikimaru but 3 champs fit your description.

Shaco
has a flash/stealth combo gap closer
extra dmg from behind (passive)
a ranged slow and terror from boxes

Talon
has a flash
multiple soft CC
has a on hit steroid (extra damage)
has a very short term stealth in ulti

Akali
has a extremely high ranged dash that can be activated multiple times in succession
has very high instant burst damage
buffs on passive
area stealth that also provides slow CC and increased armor/mr (multipurpose)

Shaco is very similar to Rikimaru.
You need to get to the point where you can drop his boxes during the fight and they will CC fear after a second or so. Do it during the fight and sometimes the enemy won't notice it, especially if it is more than just 1v1.

Evelynn is very very similar to Rikimaru.
As it currently stands her invisibility is upwards of 30 seconds or more (although Riot has stated multiple times that they want to make Eve's and Twitch's invisibility more like Shaco's).
She has a nice slow and a spammable 2-3 enemy dmg skill.
She can be the best or worst character on the team. If you play Eve and your team loses they will probably blame it on you.

Too bad Eve is widely regarded as the worst champion in league at the moment

As I believe people have already pointed out, Shaco is probably your go to guy. Though at some point, expect the enemy team to hate you (and/or call you Korean ).

What precisely about Riki is it that you liked? The stealth, the teleporting, the damage amplification? There's quite a few assassins in the game. Talon works in a limited fashion as Riki (without permanent stealth). Akali not so much (if you recommend Akali, then Fizz and Katarina re also good choices to look into, though Fizz is easily the most "viable" of the three).

If you really liked the permanent stealth, I would recommend Twitch (at present, he's in a better position than Eve is). You can try out Eve, but her knees have been pretty much broken (you can definitely still do well with her though). Once upon a time, Eve was trash tier. And then Soraka Not on the EU servers started playing her in high ELO, and everyone started to play her. My god, those were painful days. Back when she had a stun on her stealth, and her ult healed for 650 HP per kill/assist (and gave her 100% AS).

I really am grateful Riot broke her knees. It was insane. Now we wait for the rework. Eventually.
