 Crowd Control
Crowd control (also called CC) is a term used in massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG)s and MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) games to refer to the ability to limit the number of mobs actively fighting during an encounter. It can also refer to abilities that influence or prevent the abilities or actions of other character(s). Crowd control can be extremely powerful, controlling the possible outcomes of an encounter, as it forces opponents to use a smaller set of abilities/actions. Players use crowd control to create offense/defense ratio imbalances between themselves and their opponent(s); used properly, CC often renders an opponent nearly useless, allowing the CCer to use abilities/actions against an opponent without fear of retaliation or response. In a group setting, crowd control often makes combat safer, easier, or viable.
 Types of Crowd Control
All crowd control abilities fall into one or more of three broad categories:
 Movement modifiers
The ability to move faster than an opponent provides a form of crowd control, often through kiting. Any modifier that decreases an opponent's speed will allow kiting.
Many forms of crowd control use this type of modifier. Traditionally, "root" and "snare" effects that directly modify opponents' movement rates by lowering them or simply preventing movement have been the staple of this type of crowd control.
The abilities include, but are not limited to:
|Slow||Lowers movement rates while allowing all other actions to occur.|
|Cripple||Prevents using most movement abilities like leaps, dashes and teleports.|
|Root||Immobilizes the target while allowing all other actions to occur.|
 Forced Movement
|Teleport||Moves the CCer a distance away, usually instantly.|
|Knockback||Forces opponent(s) away from the CCer.|
|Pull||Forces opponent(s) closer (or all the way) to the CCer.|
|Bounce/Knockup||Opponent(s) are briefly lifted off the ground, unable to control movement or use abilities; if they were stationary, they remain stationary until landing, but if they were moving, they continue moving in the same direction until landing.|
|Charm/Taunt||Forces opponent(s) to move towards/attack the CCer.|
|Stun||Completely incapacitates the target.|
|Fear||Completely incapacitates the target while forcing them to run away from the caster.|
|Mesmerize||Completely incapacitates the target. Effect breaks upon taking damage.|
|Silence||Prevents the target from using any abilities.|
|Banish||Completely incapacitates the target and prevents everyone from targeting them.|
Gold is the currency used inside of matches to purchase and upgrade items. Every players starts with certain amount of gold and earn extra gold periodically. The amount changes depending on what mode they are playing in.
Additional gold can be obtained in several ways:
- Killing enemy minions
- Killing enemy Gods (The amount is determined by several factors listed bellow)
- Kill assists
- Destroying objectives (Towers, Phoenixes, etc.)
- Killing jungle camps
 God Kill & Streaks
When you kill an enemy god you are awarded with:
- Base Amount = (150 + (Gold Earned by Victim / 100))
- Level Adjustment = ((enemy level - player level) * .1)
- This is capped at +/- .6.
- Total = (Base Amount + (Base Amount * Level Difference Adjustment)) * 1.1 ^ Opponents Kill Streak
Achieving First Blood (the first non-neutral god kill in the match) provides an additional 200 gold. Depending on how high the victim's killstreak (the amount of kills in a row they have archieved without dying) was, the kill win reward more gold and it'll end their killing spree.
Experience is used to level up your god. Leveling up provides you with a passive boost to your god's stats and an additional skill point that can be used to learn or upgrade your abilities. All gods start at level 1, and can level up to 20. As you progress, it'll take increasingly more experience to level up. Much like gold, experience can be obtained by killing enemy units and gods, destroying objectives, and killing neutral monsters.
 Favor & Gems
Favor is something you gain by playing matches in the game. It is a form of currency that can be used unlock new gods, and some cosmetic skins. It also allows you to rent gods you don't own for a limited time.
Ways of earning Favor:
- Completing the Tutorial will grant you 100 favor.
- Each time you win a practice match with a different god it grants you 50 favor. (You can only earn this bonus once per god.)
- When a player levels up, they gain 500 favor.
- Every time a player completes a match-made game, they receive Favor based on the match's length.
- First win of the day bonus grants the player an extra +100 favor. (The bonus is unique for each mode, so it can be earned more that once a day.)
- Winning the game will grant the player more favor than a loss. (You will still gain favor for a loss.)
Gems are a type of currency in the game that you can only obtain by either buying them with real money, redeeming promotion codes or from completing offers. You can use these gems to unlock new gods or to buy cosmetic skins and voicepacks.
 God Masteries & Worshipers
Worshipers are acquired by being victorious in battle. For each match you play, you earn worshipers for the god you played with. You gain God Ranks for worshipers that you acquire.
