Don't listen to them, they removed it because too many champions who could NOT make good use of it were buying it. With champs today, I count 6 who could use it well, 5 who would get marginal use depending on the situation, and 6 who could make an effective troll build in a casual game. It's a fine item, but it was acting as a noob trap for AD carries with better crit-related options. Rather than leave it in for build diversity on the few champs who CAN use it, they took it out to avoid confusing beginners. If we put it back in today, it may actually be better than it was before thanks to synergy from hurricane, but BotRK is still better on normal AD carries.
It was my favorite item based on my preferred champions, and I do miss it. I cling heavily to Kitae's in Dominion as the last memory of it, but it's not the same and works on even fewer champs.
