So we can expect Shaco to remain garbage-tier for a while longer now. Good to know.

The point isn't about it being bad.
Yes, if it's bad, change it again, or throw it away.
But the fact that they can spend "up to a year doing it" and simply throw it away?

They also never involve the community in their decisions, which is probably why they always throw it away.
"How would you guys like a Shaco ultimate to do _________?"
A simple thread could solve all of their rework problems, but apparently they'd rather just throw everything away and waste their time.

Did Riot rehire shurelia? It certainly feels like it with the amount of time it's taking to get these reworks done.

For those that don't know, she was the person in charge of the stealth rework, which took over 2 years if I remember correctly.

TL;DR

Shaco rework got canned and has been pushed back to 2015.

If you can minor tweak release Nami over many patches to the now Nami, why can't you do that for Shaco?

it sucks that riot is hyper attentive to competitive champ balance, but then....doesn't try to buff up champs that see no tournament play for YEARS. Or just do the typical "we'll nerf these guys down then come back to rebalance them! don't worry guys!" then do the Master Yi **** where they ruin a niche champ and then just nerf him down to garbage tier and are fairly content to leave him there
