This. When you're up against a team full of hard CC, and you have none, you can pretty much assume you lost at the loading screen (unless you're a tank and can force the enemy to blow it all on you).
So, 'CC Meta' was never, and always a 'problem'. Completely independent of Season 3.
In fact, I would argue that with the inclusion of items such as Zephyr, Mercurial Scimitar and Mikael's Crucible, in addition to the tenacity mastery, CC is less of a problem now than it was before. Very few people are using these items in favor of all the cool damage items, such as Ravenous Hydra, Runaan's, and Black Cleaver... it's a phase that will pass, I think.
