so ive been playing shaco this month.
i love playing him, and i do pretty well with him but...

i have a big flaw i cant defend towers very well with him
and so i try to mitigate it by counter pushing for instance.
i was doing well this game i was 12/0 at 20mins in and
the enemy was pushing mid so i went top and just cleared mid & inhibitor tower
i saw sion push our top so i recall and try to spook him he keeps at it i enage him
under the tower i ****ed up couldnt disengage due to a stun and lost the tower.
i ended that game 15/2/6 and another loss. i need some help because this has happened a couple of times now.



right now i have 9 armor pen marks and 3 armor pen quints i take ignite + flash/ghost
i start w/ hunter's 3 red pots and 2 blue , place 4 boxes at red
it should only take 5-6 secs and put me at lv 2 then i get q and do an early gank on bot
get the kills and if i'm able to start counter jungling.

i go elder lizard > boots o' mob > BORK > IF > PD > BT
and when its no longer cost effective i sell the first item

i have decent k/d that ranges from 5/1 to 3/1 per game with him

i appreciate any advice/constructive critism

If you're 15/2/6 and your team loses it isn't at all your fault.

Hes not a great champ for defending I suppose. A better option might be to apply pressure elsewhere.

If Tops being pushed by someone you don't think you can beat, then go push some pressure Mid/Bot and if your team is on the ball, you should be able to atleast trade a tower for a tower.

Goodluck!
