CertainlyT has a hate boner for cleanse/summoner spells

Note, this isn't just a mindless rant about CertainlyT champs (though I do dislike them. A lot). This is more of a common theme in his champion design which is a wee bit concerning. Has anyone else noticed that every champion he's made has a form of CC that can't be removed by cleanse, or at the least limits it's effectiveness. Darius, Thresh, Yasuo, Kalista and Zyra all have knock ups, or more specifically, renders the target airborne. Some are obvious such as Kalista ult, Zyra ult and Yasuo, but Darius's E actually makes the recipients airborne. The absolutely best outcome for the person hit with said CC is that you can flash after a cleanse, but even then that's two summoner spells burnt for one piece of CC. Warwick gets a pass since he always had the suppress in his kit. The cynic in me though think he probably signed up to the champion because of the room for that CC. Now Zoe is both better and worse. On one hand, Sleep can be cleansed. However, if Drowsy is cleansed you still fall asleep. This means you either have to take a slow, or take a stun that can get you one shotted IE you'll always at least be slowed. I'd also like to add that in the LCS unsealed spellbook has been very dominant in mid lane. I don't think it's a coincidence that she also has an ability that gives extra access to summoner spells. Anyway what do you guys think? Do you think it's just coincidence that CT's champs have awkward CC that behavior oddly compared to slows, stuns and snares, or do you think he deliberately designs them with this in mind? Do you think they're part of why his champions can be so frustrating to play against for a lot of players?
