I've had a lot of games where people say "mia ___" (missing in action <hero>)

Then afterwards people say 're'

about 70-80% of people i play with say "re" to mean "Re-stating mia call"

However in 20-30% of the games i play people say "re" as in "Retracting Mia call"

Have i been using it wrong as a 'restate mia'?

maybe also the reason they call dragon -> drake on EU server

I always thought it was "return", as in the person you called mia on came back. I can't say I ever actually asked anyone about it though.

re means reappeared.

Thank you for your time.

"re" ALWAYS means "never mind, they're back". Always. I haven't once seen it to mean "re-stating mia call" and I've played a good 500 (or maybe 400, I forget) games.

However, I still am not sure what exactly re is supposed to stand for. Retract, redact, remove.

'Re' does mean 'returned'.

Re is retracted. For restating mias "still mia" works better.

I use it to retract the mia call.

Why would you use it to restate mia? Seems pointless.

Being that I, like many internet people these days, type at the great speed of 100+ wpm I don't use acronyms. "I think Tristana left." "Nevermind, she's here."

Maybe it helps that I've played MMORPGs and first person shooters to the point that I can stop to talk in the middle of the action without consequence.

But you all should learn from me instead of being really confusing with your res and cares.
