Shaco Late game?

Yes I know everbody goes on about how horrible Shaco is late game, but after i looked at his skills i couldn't really see why. Assuming he has 6 items he looks like he would be easily one of the best duelists; 75 percent dmg increase ult, aoe hard cc(yes its cancellable when you whack the box), and a very strong auto attack modifier (q Crit +120%). I read post saying he blows up in teamfights etc but really that only depends on what items you have; he could go a standard g/a warmogs etc. And he isn't susceptible to kiting like most melees have late game (blink, slow on hit, Fear).

Indeed its hard to get 6 items as shaco but Im only arguing about how good shaco is lategame once he gets those items.

He's only bad if you let them catch up. Have to CONSTANTLY gank. Not "zomg only good if 6 items"

too squishy has to be in melee range
unless you are ap shaco
all you will be doing is set up box for teamfight and cleanup
so go BD BD BD or split push

He's one of the strongest duelists in the game, but so are most assassins. Suffers from the general assassin problem of not being able to stand up to focus and resists on bruisers = OP.

Tankiness is only dependant on base stats, items and skills. Shaco's basestats aren't that bad (minimal difference late game), items: he can go for the same tanky items as any1 else and he can use his q and ult to avoid damage. He might not have any defensive steroids but their are quite a few melees who don't but are good late game like amumu, evelyn.

I'm asking why people say shaco drops off late game, I think hes a great duelist, hes got good cc, a lot harder to kite than most melees, and great damage. Stuns affect every single person in the game save a few so thats not an answer to shaco. Shaco can build the same tanky dps build like all melees and out dps most melees.

i'd rather just have GA on shaco and play him smart than building him tanky deeps. he isn't a peeler / bruiser bodyguard; he's an assassin.

Being a good duelist really isn't that positive of a quality late game.
