according to the patch it's just a broader sense of cc reduction.. in the form of 4 items. one for tanks, one for support, one for casters, and one for carries... or so it seems.

Too bad the most Tenacity is still on Merc Treads.

So if you want the best CC reduction your still going to get Merc Treads over the other Tenacity items... and since tenacity doesn't stack (and it really should) it makes all other items with Tenacity (when you have merc Treads) worthless.

Yeah.... go Roit....

Should have at least put the same amount of Tenacity on the new items.... Sigh

No one, but it was a proposed type of cc that was basically put on the back burner since sleep and fear are traditionally the hardest types of cc to balance.

It reduces crowd control duration, as well as blind and silence duration. It's just like Mercury Treads, only it's a statistic instead of a bonus effect.

Say they put 35 Tenacity on the new items.

Why would you ever buy Merc Treads?

I think the point is to give people more options so they arent forced to always go mercs against heavy CC, however having the same tenacity as mercs would make mercs almost completely pointless. This way there are positives and negatives to picking any of the tenacity item.
