@Xypherous, why does almost every new champ have a cc?

Here are the only champs in the game with no built in cc whatsoever:

Corki, Ezreal, Katarina, Mordekaiser, Nidalee, Master Yi, Fiora, Sivir

5 of these were released in 2009. 2 in 2010. Fiora is the only champion since 2010 to have no built in cc at all. But why does every champ released now have a built in cc?

Master Yi CCs himself.

Akali's CC totes doesn't count as real CC.

Because it allows more strategy and counter play rather then just whoever has more "stats" wins the fight. With CC you can kite etc. It basically lets you win match ups that you wouldn't otherwise win without strategic use of your CC.

Because champs that have no CC have less to offer a team when they fall behind, or against another champion in the same role but WITH CC, probably (Exceptions and tradeoffs exist, of course).

Also, utility pretty much always feels good to use successfully at all points in the game, so there's the fun factor.

Champs with CC are probably easier to balance because there's one less outlet for them to have uncontrollable amounts of damage.

Champs with CC are also stronger duelists and therefore have more versatility in their lane options.

Most importantly, champs with CC also encourage better plays and coordination by both the champ and his opponent, rather than just turning the end result into a slapfest between two guys with 6 items. Take your pick.

Most of those champions also suck unless they have extremely good mobility

You mashed hard CC and soft CC together. Zed's CC for example is not really that strong. I would also not put Akali's shroud as a reliable CC.

Pretty much this. Not to mention almost all ADs (Draven, Cait, MF, Twitch, Kog) barely have CC as a design choice.

I don't see why you care anyways. Unless you're trying to argue that Corki, Ezreal, Kat, Nid etc... are bad heroes

I agree, the more cc there is in the game the more limiting your champion options are, it makes the game too stale. LESS CC, MORE UTILITY.

If 90% of past champions have cc why are you suprised that 90% of new champions have cc?
