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.
