Status Effects (also known as Debuffs or Crowd Control) are negative conditions in Paladins. They usually affect the targeted champions with some kind of penalty, and the effect wears off over time. Most status effects can be removed or mitigated with certain Cards or skills.
Hard Crowd Control effects such as Stuns or Silences will interrupt channeled skills.

Status Effects Reduction[edit | edit source]
There are several means of reducing the effectivity of debuffs and crowd control effects or even nullifying them entirely. Some champion skills and cards reduce the duration or strength of certain effects while others provide a temporary immunity to some or all of them.
Diminishing Returns[edit | edit source]
Diminishing returns is a mechanic that makes crowd control effects less effective when used on a recently affected target. When a target is first hit by a crowd control effect, they are affected for the entire duration. If they are hit with another effect within 15 seconds, that effect will only last 66% of its normal duration. Any other effects after that will only last 33% of their original duration. A target can be crowd controlled as normal once 15 seconds has past since they were last affected.
