We all know Darkseid was depowered after COIE, But my question is how was he depowered a specific event or just bad writing?

I'm pretty sure it's bad writing. I've heard several times that he wasn't changed. 
 
But an explination for his suckiness after COIE is he started to use avatars (described as "one aspect of his supposedly omnipotent being"). These avatars don't do so well in fights/intellect sometimes (he's had something taken from him by Anarky, who was approximatley fourteen years old at the time), and they've gotten their butt kicked by superman a few times.

Actually, Pre-Crisis Darkseid used avatars too.
 
If you ask me, he was powered down because Superman was powered down. A few of Superman's enemies were much more powerful Pre-Crisis, but since he was weakened after the crisis, I'm pretty sure the writers decided to do the same with his enemies as well to challenge him effectively. If enemies like Darkseid and Mongul, both of whom were able to give even PC Superman a good beating, were never weakened, modern Superman would die from a single attack from either of them.

He was made into a moron 
 
Where Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman beat the crap out of him
