Regarding LoL terms, I dislike how ADC originally meant AD Caster, but it somehow shifted to mean AD Carry.

Also, SS means Summoner Spell, the Shiv item, and MIA.

Some are just poorly designed. :<

ss is widely used in EU server. I've never heard someone use SS for Statik Shiv (usually just Shiv). People usually just say the name of the Summoner's so they know which one is down (Exhaust, Ignite, and Flash. The others aren't usually called out).

About AD Carry vs. AD caster, they decided to lump the caster in as a Bruiser. So people saw the chance to refer to the Ranged Carry as ADC.

SS means MIA, nothing else. If you come up with weird meanings to confuse yourself have fun but it's primary use is to call a mia.

If SS means MIA, then what does MIA mean?
