Does Tenacity Reduce Knockups/knockbacks?
 
had an arguement with someone about whether they do or not i dont think they did. anyone know for sure?

They don't and this is the reason alistar is considered overpowered, none of his abilities are affected by tenacity.

His Q has a stun and his W does actually have a minor stun, though tenacity will definitely be less useful against Alistar than Leona or Amumu.

Knockup- and displacement skills all also have a stun built in that is always a tadbit longer than the knockup/displacement and said stun IS affected by tenacity, so skills that knockup/displace ARE effected by tenacity, but the effect of nknockup/displacement is not.

False, Xin doesn't have stun on his knock-up or knock-back, nor does Cho'gath's knock-up, zyra or maphlite's ult.

Some do this, but not ALL.

Except Malphite ult DOES have a stun to it.

Tenacity doesn't effect such skills, as the animation times for knock-ups are pretty inflexible, so you get incapacitated for the full duration (Pulverize, Unstoppable Force, Blitz Punch, Wukong Ulti, Nautilus Ulti). They don't effect displacement either (Rocket Grab, Headbutt, Dissonance, Diana Displace, Tristana Knocback, Condemn, Poppy Charge, Singed Fling, Volibear Fling, etc.).

Which makes CC Bots like Blitzcrank and Alistar rather hard to deal with, as they both have 2 forms of non-mitigatable CC. (Quicksilver Sash and Cleanse also won't remove such CC effects once the CC is applied). Effects that grant immunity to CC prior to it's application, such as Black Shield and Ragnarok, will prevent such CC effects from occurring though.

Also, considering it reduces the duration of CC rather than reduces the strength of the CC, any ward-like effects that constantly apply CC while you're on it are largely unaffected by tenacity as well (Mega Adhesive, the Slow portion of Viktor's Slow, Anivia's Ultimate), though if you have a gap-closer you can generally avoid the slow by jumping off of it.

Anyways, here's the LoL Wiki article on Tenacity.
