Peeling an enemy is forcing that enemy away from its target, or forcing the enemy to not be able to reach its target.

Alistair peels an enemy Irelia from his Caitlyn by using headbutt.

So ulting their carry as WW isn't peeling but splitting their team as Janna ult is?

ulting the carry is an initiate, not peel. peeling generally refers to bruiser/assassin sticking to your ad carry

the difference is. if you're CCing someone to SAVE someone else, that's peeling.

if you're just initiating on a carry, that's initiating

If you ult to keep the carry off of your own carry, it is peeling. Basically, if you use CC defensively for your allies, you are peeling. If you use it offensively, you are doing something different (initiating, chasing, zoning, etc.).

If you were WW and ulted their Irelia as she dove on your carry then that would be peeling.

WW's ult can still be considered peeling.

It doesn't move the enemy champ, but it still keeps them away from their target.

I thought peeling was more like you harass the enemy to take of their health bit by bit, such that when you do teamfight they're easier to kill.

Kinda like peeling a fruit so it's easier to eat.
