Buffered input canceling (or BIC'ing) is something I just discovered today. This video shows that if you know a cc is coming you can cancel it by buffering your moves together before it hits. Instead of standing still, your buffered input commands unravel while the CC is taking place, effectively canceling the CC.

A while back Riot added a feature that let you buffer a command while CC'd so that it would cast the moment the cc was lifted. This helped non-smart cast users still get the benefit of getting their desired spell off at the earliest possible moment. However, it has appeared to me through several cases that this buffer can override future cc's done to the champion, most notably silence.

However, this buffered input also applies to some cast animations, such as Caitlyn Q. In the video, you can cast Caitlyn Q as you're getting stunned to get the full ability off and then buffer an autoattack command that goes off after the ability WHILE you're stunned, effectively negating the stun by doing full dps for the duration. This technique is really easy to do with characters with long cast animations that don't get interuppted by CC; Ezreal ult and Lux ult come to mind.

I first noticed this bug/exploit when trying to chain CC's on Lulu. And it's exceptionally noticeable on Chogath. (If a Chogath casts rupture and hits an Ezreal.. all the Ezreal has to do to guaranteed escaping is to buffer his E once while knocked up before the Chogath silences him and then not issue any other commands; even though the Ezreal gets silenced during the knockup, his Arcane Shift will go off as soon as the knockup is over because he buffered the move BEFORE he was silenced. This also applies to moves like Skarner ult, to guarantee getting an escape move such as flash or Valkyrie off despite getting chain CC'd.
