Crowd Control (commonly shortened to CC) is a blanket term used in MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games) and MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas) to describe abilities or spells that remove or diminish the control a target unit has over aspects of itself - aspects such as being able to cast spells or initiate movement commands. As crowd controls impact a unit's combat ability, they are essentially more specialized forms of debuffs - however, this ability to directly hinder a unit's ability to fight means that crowd controls are often given significantly more importance in regular gameplay than normal debuffs, resulting in their special classification.

Stun

Heroes that are stunned cannot move, use their basic attack or use skills. Stun effect can last from less than 1 second to 2 whole seconds. Some examples are Eudora.png Eudora's Ball Lightning.png Ball Lightning, Rafaela.png Rafaela's Holy Baptism.png Holy Baptism or Gord.png Gord's Mystic Projectile.png Mystic Projectile. People that can inflict stun effect include:


Immobilize

A form of CC that prevents the enemy from moving, locking them in place. It does not prevent them from using Basic Attack or skills except for most Blink skills or other movement abilities. Some examples are Esmeralda.png Esmeralda's Falling Starmoon.png Falling Starmoon, Miya.png Miya's Arrow of Eclipse.png Arrow of Eclipse or Angela.png Angela's Puppet-on-a-String.png Puppet-on-a-String. Heroes that can inflict this type of CC include:

Taunt

A special form of CC that forces affected targets to get close to the caster and use Basic Attacks against them. The only heroes that can inflict this form of CC are:

Silence

A form of CC that prevents the target from using skills, without hindering Movement or Basic Attacks. Some examples are Akai.png Akai's Hurricane Dance.png Hurricane Dance, Helcurt.png Helcurt's Shadow Transition.png Shadow Transition (during Dark Night Falls.png ultimate) or Natalia.png Natalia's Assassin Instinct.png Assassin Instinct. The only characters that can inflict Silence effect are:

Suppression

A powerful form of CC that disables all sorts of actions.

It will ignore CC Immunity effects like Badang.png Badang's Fist Crack.png Fist Crack, Guinevere.png Guinevere's Violet Requiem.png Violet Requiem and Benedetta.png Benedetta's An Eye for An Eye.png An Eye for An Eye despite still keeping the invincibility period.

Suppression cannot be removed by:

  • Spell Purify.png Purify,
  • Crowd Control removing skills (like Wanwan.png Wanwan's Needles in Flowers.png Needles in Flowers and Valir.png Valir's Vengeance Flame.png Vengeance Flame)
  • Time Controlled Reduction (like Tough Boots.png Tough Boots).

Heroes that can inflict this form of CC are:

Knock Up / Airborne

A type of CC that launches the target in the air, preventing them from moving or attacking for a few moments, this CC isn't affected by Resilience and can be removed using the Purify.png Purify Battle Spell or other skills that clear CC effects. Some examples are Guinevere.png Guinevere's Spatial Migration.png Spatial Migration, Jawhead.png Jawhead's Ejector.png Ejector, Kadita.png Kadita's Breath of the Ocean.png Breath of the Ocean or Ling.png Ling's Tempest of Blades.png Tempest of Blades. Several characters can inflict knock up / airborne effects, including:

Pull

A form of displacement CC that displaces an enemy by dragging them towards the caster or towards a designated location.

Some forms of Pull will have a continuous effect over time while others will pull the targets only once. Most Pull skills have an AoE effect, except for Franco.png Franco's Iron Hook.png Iron Hook , Minsitthar.png Minsitthar's Spear of Glory.png Spear of Glory or Diggie.png Diggie's Reverse Time.png Reverse Time, which can only pull a single enemy.


Heroes that can pull enemies towards themselves include:

Heroes that can pull enemies towards a location include:

Knockback

A form of CC that displaces an enemy by knocking them away from the caster or pushing them in the same direction that the caster is traveling. Knock Back distance ranges from barely noticeable, such as Balmond.png Balmond's Soul Lock.png Soul Lock or Hilda.png Hilda's Art of Hunting.png Art Of Hunting, to very long distances, such as Chou.png Chou's The Way of Dragon.png The Way Of Dragon or Valir.png Valir's Searing Torrent.png Searing Torrent, and even slightly knock enemies in the air, such as Bane.png Bane's Deadly Catch.png Deadly Catch or Lesley.png Lesley's Tactical Grenade.png Tactical Grenade. Independently from its strenght, Knock Back is a form of istantaneous CC that will stop enemy heroes from casting skills by very briefly stunning them, but won't usually have lasting effects.

Trivia

  • Fanny.png Fanny is the only hero who does not have any form of crowd control, not even slow.

    • This has been fixed on his latest revamp.
  • Jawhead.png Jawhead is the only hero in the game who can inflict CC on his allies, by using his second skill Ejector.png Ejector.
