What is Crowd Control
Crowd Control or CC is a term used to describe an effect that prevents enemies from moving or using attacks or skills. There are many forms of Crowd Control which include stuns, slows, silences, and other disabling effects.
How to stop an enemy’s CC
Crowd Control is useful for helping allies during team fights but can also be detrimental to champions affected by it. Champions are capable of acting against CC using counter abilities. For example one can use Olaf’s Ult to get rid of its effect.
Another way to stop CC is to use certain items. Mercury Boots and Swiftness Boots are good examples of CC resistant items. Have your champion wear Mercury Boots to help weather the CC faster, you can also opt for Swiftness Boots to mitigate the immobilizing effect that CC brings.
