Missing in action. It means you can't see them on the map.

and its safer to just pay attention to ur minimap and dont over push ur lane b/c if some1 really wanted to gank u.

they can ghost from mid to u in under 10 secs

Well first, that wasn't the point of the thread. Secondly in many way it is NOT safer to use your minimap because looking at your minimap does not tell you that your opponent(s) are actually Recalling. Or anything else, which depending on your mia caller, might signal a mia. Amongst other things.

Thank you. I've been called a noob for saying this more times than I can remember. Sometimes you don't really have an opportunity to stand still and type "MIA", there might be a fight going on, or you might be watching for a gank yourself. Hell, like you said they can ghost to a lane so fast, by the time you get to safe spot and type MIA, they might be there already. I find it easier to just ping the map a bunch of times.

Don't get me wrong, I call MIAs when I can, but people can also look at their maps.

Why exactly did the OP get downvoted for asking a fair question as a Junior Member?
