The game has always revolved around CC.
The thing about Tenacity items is that, IMO, they're just not even worthwhile on about half the champs on a given team, even against a heavy CC team. The ADC and Support are both likely going to die if they get hit with hard CC, anyway (even if it's short-duration like 1 second), and the Tank really shouldn't be expecting to get hit by hard CC. On the other hand, it's mandatory on Bruisers. Their job is to jump on a carry, and a decent tank will always try to peel them.
EDIT: Oh, and Merc Treads are the *only* viable Tenacity item, at the moment. Elesia's is a terrible item, and both Moonflair Spellblade and Cloak and Dagger give otherwise underwhelming benefits for the slot requirement.
