                              There is a good point made about the aggressiveness of the hero early in the game. It's no secret that CM is food by, like, minute 20 and that makes her warding game very weak very fast, so the early game is incredibly important for her.

                              With that in mind, the jungling and surprise rotations are what differentiate learning players from learned players. It's easy enough to babysit with CM when you're learning. Even if you die, you are providing an aura that will help your team feel less like they are pulling your weight. But once you get comfortable in the game, knowing how to prioritize frostbite in jungle and making rotations is essential to the success of CM.

                              You gotta stay ahead in levels and get those survivability items to bolster her MS and health, and you're not going to do that when you sit in lane. Shaman stays because he has a nuke and a fantastic channeling stun to pair with, say Ursa. Lion can ruin an offlaner's presence in the lane with mana drain. Dazzle can heal and harass with low mana cost spells, not to mention shallow grave. All three of these heroes have either high enough health, high enough damage, or the ability to gain health back quickly. None of them can farm relatively easily though, so what CM loses in health she makes up in farming capability and much better crowd control. It's fairly unique to CM which makes it an easily forgotten twist to your normal support role. If you're struggling at winning games or finding you get killed easily, you're probably forgetting to jungle.

                                Why no Arc Warden buffs in 7.06 Icefrog? He had like a 10% winrate in Kiev Icefrog. Wtf icefrog?

                                          Hope she's not get nerf in 7.06

                                            Teammates see CM: mmm aura
                                            Weaver/Clinkz sees CM:
                                            mmm food

                                            kokoroko

                                              She might be getting a minor nerfs post-TI if we were to judge from her winrate in pubs, and pick rate in competitive. Even while cm becomes weak into the mid/late game, her ultra-late game is actually quite strong, because bkb durations drop down to 5s, and she has a much superior gpm talents compared to other supports which allows her to keep up her economy in that time.
