1) You're not using Revive to do the same thing, so you're doing it wrong.
2) Revive has a ten minute cooldown. If you refuse to run the best summoners then you should at least be using your summoners better than their's. Hint, more team fights.
3) Low Elo players get away with not using Revive because most of them are awful and don't even know how to use it properly. If you ever manage to dig yourself out of that, please note that everyone with a brain uses Revive and you're going to be holding your team back by refusing to do so.
Have a nice day.
@Catnium: Thank you, dear, I was looking for one of those.
