Or, you could hit TAB and see which enemy heros are grey.

No reason to add a mia button to the game. We already have Enter, M, I and A keys on keyboards, right?

Like it's been mentioned, it would be nice to work like the ping button - press and then click in your lane. Depending on team, the correct msg would go out.

Or we could try the alternate ping, but I'm iffy about plastering text on the minimap b/c of localization (I know MIA would work for english, though).
Gestures? Like mouse gestures?

That would be incredibly awesome. I'm an Opera browser user, partially because of how much I love mouse gestures. Being able to quickly move my mouse and hit a key to call out "MIA" and "returned". You could do a lot of nifty quick communications with it, too.

I have a Nostromo (small programmable keyboard) and my I just have macros for "top mia", "bot mia", "mid mia." all available via a single keystroke. Works great.

I have to say i really like the idea of an alternate color ping... if i had a nickle for every time i pinged where an mia enemy went, and a random pub went running there only to get ganked.... i'd be one rich man...

^ This.


Also previous poster, missed thequote.. SHIFT + HOME/END, works. Just doesn't highlight it. But, if you click with your mouse anytime before doing anything with the text, it doesn't work. Its pretty buggy chat box imo.

IDEA: What about having the enemy team frames on the right (without health/mana bars) that are darkened by default. Alt + Clicking the unit's frame will reveal/light up the frame (or some sort of flashing attention-getter) to indicate the unit is MIA. Repeating this action will retract the MIA call. Something like a 5 second cooldown on each unit's frame should hopefully prevent any spammage.
