Remove the Trap Detection passive in ARAM. There is already Oracles Extract available to buy, players should be forced to buy that item over and over again if they want to counter teemo/shaco traps. As it stands just one player needs to get a sweeper to make teemo and shaco traps useless, and if you do the math, the trap detection passive is actually a FREE permanent counter to those champions, while also being a counter to several other stealth based champions with the Hunters Sight active.

One champ with lightbringer has to look fir the traps, and they have to be alive. If you don't like them having it just focus them out if the game like crazy. Problem solved

Remove oracles as those 2 items do the job.

Oracles has its uses. Sweeper passive trap detection dos not reveal stealth so you buy it to prevent Rengar/Twich from going behind you and taking your nexus.

The point is that there shouldn't be an item in the game that negates half of a champions skill set, let alone 2 champions at 0 cost. I'm fine with the active, it reveals traps and stealth enemies, why should it also permanently reveal traps? There's no reason for the passive to exist, at the very least it deserves to have a 15 second cooldown that's triggered when a trap is destroyed.

Whenever there's a teemo in ARAM the first thing any team buys is trap detection, his mushrooms are really good at zone control and that's his strength in ARAM, the same goes for shaco boxes. You completely remove his presence by buying a single item, his usefulness should only ever be decided by the skill and outplay of the enemy players, not by their ability to click the "buy" button.

PS. Feel free to name vote, it doesn't matter if you love or hate teemo, the item is still broken.

If you have sweepers lens there is no point in buying oracles every time so in general there isn't much of a point in having oracles in Aram if all it takes is one teammate that has sweepers lens. My opinion is that sweepers lens should be gotten rid of because with so many champions that rely on their stealth having one item that can counter them completely and utterly is simply too strong so you can keep oracles because it isn't infinite and without some form of vision you won't be able to defeat these champs either so having something you have to refresh is important so that we can achieve a kind of balance between being able to counter stealth champions completely and not being able to fight them at all. Teemo is too op and must be stopped but he still has to be strong enough to be the grip reaper of LOL
