Shaco's Deceive

Shaco's nerf made no sense. The justification to nerf Deceive's stealth duration from 4 to 3.5 seconds was this:

"It is a minor nerf and it won't affect Shaco much at all."

Going forward with a nerf because that nerf is not significant IS NOT JUSTIFICATION FOR THE NERF.

Furthermore, people complained about Shaco's Deceive letting him engage in fights with no threat to himself. Apparently, CCs and silences don't exist, and neither do Oracle elixirs.

It appears that Riot's take on the "problem" with Deceive was to nerf everything about Shaco.
