Definitely think you should add in golem and lizard (and the corresponding blue and red). A lot of early players don't even know/remember they exist, which is a problem in and of itself.

Does anybody know what "ss" means? Heard that last game. Think it has something to do with an enemy going back to fountain to heal up.

I use SS as screenshot; I've never heard it as Summoner Spell, but I can see where that comes in *shrug*

As in HoN and DotA, use of 'ss' in game is generally an abbreviation of 'miss' or 'mia'. It means someone is missing from that lane. This is noted on a similar acronym guide for HoN here (http://www.gamereplays.org/heroesofnewerth/portals.php?show=page&name=HoN_Glossary_Of_Terms), and a lively dispute about it can be read here (http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/showthread.php?t=85125&page=5). It's not very common to see people use 'ss' over 'mia' or 'miss'. In forums, I've mostly seen it used in place of screenshot, if at all.

SS could be alot of things like people said but ss may be "soul stealer" its a snowball item. On a side note in conjunction with missing or mia is "re" meaning the player returned.

It could be one of several things such as:

Summoner Spell
Screenshot
Soulstealer (the item Mejai's Soulstealer)
Siphoning Strike (An ability of Nasus)

and a few others, but these are the more popular uses.
