You use CV, I exhaust your carry as my carry lays waste to you and your carry. Your move

1. Works best in teams, pointless in soloqueue.
2. With enough wards, the usefulness of CV is limited.
3. It was always used in S1 - a support without CV would be flamed, actually - but got nerfed hard, while wards are easier to get in S3 - not to mention "reveal items" such as Twin shadows. It doesnt grant true sight either.
4. It doesn't last long and the enemy can see it, which means there's little to no surprise.
5. Obviously, it takes a slot. If you use it on a jungler, you have no exhaust/ignite for ganks, nor ghost/flash as a chase/escape skill. If you use it on a support, you lose the lane if you had an even matchup, or will go even if your matchup was favourable, because the enemy has one more spell.
