I've seen the term Proc used many times since I began playing a month and a half ago. Such as in these design notes:

The cleave passive will no longer proc while hitting towers

I've never been able to find what it means-I've tried googling it without finding anything, and there's nothing on the Gamefaqs boards about it. FAQ searches come up with nothing...can someone tell me what "Proc" means?

It's an acronym for something, which I cannot remember. However, a "proc" is something that activates randomly due to a % chance on a certain occassion. For instance, Madred's (the first one) has a 15% chance to deal 500 damage to a minion or creep. That is a proc.

I assume it means to "process" an effect or ability.

I'm going to hijack this thread and ask: what does CC stand for? I know what CC represents (stuns, slows, snares, etc.), but the letters, what do they mean?

I believe it's Programmed Random Occurance or something like that.

CC means Crowd Control, and from what I get it basically means that you control the enemy's actions in a way other than death.

I really think OP (opponent control) would be better since Crowd infers more than one being, but OverPowered would conflict, I guess.

If you want to be exact, "proc" is short for "special procedure".

CC is for Crown Control. Basically anything that inhibits a player from controling his character.
