I was wondering if there is a list (or if one can be created here) of commonly used DotA/LoL words/phrases/acronyms that new players might not know. Today was my first day playing (found this game on WoWhead) and I want to be able to keep up with the veterans. Thanks!

That list has:

Quote:
miss, mia = Missing, missing in action. Commonly used to describe when a hero is missing from a lane and may indicate to the team that a gank may happen.
which sould show that.

Normally when I call mias, I specify the champs, too, and it pretty often takes that form too.
