CC

1. What does CC stand for?

Crowd control

In MMORPGs, MOBAs, and other online games, CC stands for "crowd control." If another player asks you for CC, it means they want you to stun or immobilize an enemy (or group of enemies).

There are a number of ways a player might perform CC within an online game. For example, many player characters (PCs) can stun, trap, knock back, blind, or otherwise disrupt enemies. If a CC effect completely neutralizes an enemy, rendering them unable to fight, it is called hard crowd control. If a CC effect impairs an enemy but leaves them able to fight, it is called soft crowd control.

Example

Let's have our mages CC the enemy magic casters.
