Champions - Balance/Updates/Fixes


  • Players can no longer use movement abilities during hard Crowd Control effects like Root, Stun, and Polymorph.
"We like movement abilities cleansing Crowd Control as a mechanic, but the ability to use a movement ability during something as powerful as a Stun or a Root reduced the power of those effects and was something that we felt wasn't clear to new players. With this change you can no longer use your movement ability to escape Root or Stun, but you can still remove soft CCs like Slow or Daze."
