I have a huge, and I mean HUGE amount of games as both. Been playing shaco and eve both since before beta, and have been able to get good results with both.
1 shotting mid health enemy only happens if you are a very fed shaco, which does not happen much as u get higher elo and in more ranked games. Yes I queue with my low elo brother and easily got 20 kills as shaco, but that doesn't mean he's good, jsut that my opponents were terrible.
With eve, even at higher elo she has a mark, adn you can use her in clever ways to surpass counter measures, because fact is...she has a cold hard stun, some raw damage, some proper burst damage..but not amazing sustained damage unless she gets too fed. But not early game. So she is an excellent assassin.
Shaco on the other hand, has nothing good base, he has his flimsy jitb traps, that are gimmicky and noone will walk into unless they very stupid, 90 g ward destroys him completely, his jungle gank depends a lot on luck because flash/ghost/escape/cc oftem means they cna get away and even kill him with ease, and he has no real cc to stop them from getting away.
Shaco can still be good, but he absolutely depends on his team like a crutch. If his tank is bad, he fails. If his carry is bad he fails. If his ccer is bad he fails.
He fails unless his team has good players in all other roles, which means u probably won the game already.
Eve on the other hand, can be used to really help the team get a huge head start and help them actually get an advantage, she can afford to let carries ks her, and she has a properly synergizing kit.
Shaco on the other hand, is a burst assassin with no burst and nothing to chase enemies down, his ult is meaningless to him as anything but a little slightly unique idea to play with, but practically it is worse than 2 shiv for shaco. It is barely on par with his jitb as a move really...its that bad.
