** LeagueOfLegends has different types of crowd-control abilities, designed to disable certain members of the enemy team to stop them fighting back. Veigar has one move that drops a ring near him, stunning anyone who walks into the sides. [[DefiedTrope This doesn't stop ranged attacks.]]

This is achieved by having the dimension gate everyone is charging to close after the season two kids are through but the season one kids aren't. The old guard must watch from the sidelines.
