Displacement is a game mechanic that refers to the ability to displace (move) or inhibit the movement of enemies to strategically gain an advantage or reposition (or prevent from repositioning) enemies for an intended goal or purpose.

One of the main forms of displacement is referred to colloquially as Crowd Control (CC), which refers to the ability to effectively disable mobs of enemies, for example by clumping them into a certain area or making them lose control.[1] Crowd Control can be achieved many ways, including via certain Elemental Reactions and combat talents. Crowd Control abilities can be classified into the following types:

  • Vacuum Field (also colloquially Clumping/Pulling/Grouping): This refers to the ability to group mobs of enemies together. For example, Venti's Wind's Grand Ode can pull in enemies into a cyclone.
  • Knockback: For example, Diluc's Dawn can push back mobs of enemies, and Jean's Dandelion Breeze can push enemies out of a field of area. Overloaded reactions can also knock enemies back. Knockback and displacement are related to the concept of Interruption Resistance.
  • Immobilization: As is done with Mona's Stellaris Phantasm and the Petrification of Zhongli's Planet Befall. Permanently freezing enemies can also provide Crowd Control.
  • Taunting: Drawing enemies into a specified area, which provides some degree of Crowd Control as well.

Enemies can also use Crowd Control skills to affect the players' movement.

More testing is needed to understand when Overloaded on a player causes an explosion and when Overloaded due to the environment causes an explosion (e.g. puddle of Electro on the ground combined with burning grass)

The Overloaded reaction causes an explosion that pushes the target and the target's surrounding allies back.

The Electro-Charged reaction periodically interrupts movement, including attacks.

The Frozen reaction immobilizes enemies and is notable for how it can be constantly renewed on most enemies, including many Elite Enemies. Constant renewal of the Frozen reaction is colloquially known as permafreeze.
