Riot butchering Shaco's ap assassin playstyle

His ap scaling/ult explosion hotfix nerf might have been the worst nerf shaco will ever receive. I'm a Shaco main with almost 120k points, and I enjoy playing him both ad and ap. But this nerf will probably make him not so viable if he goes ap. Now my question is, was this nerf **REALLY** necessary? I know he's strong, but his high ap burst is literally everything he can (could) do now while playing ap. Before the rework he could atleast poke with his E, do some good damage if backstab was applied. But now, with the E shit base damage, and poor scalings, you migh as well rework his whole E.
