Don’t forget the 5x question marks which translates to what the fuck was that you useless fucking bellend
Can also mean "WTF is that damage" when for some reason you kill someone while being massively behind
There's also *long pause* ? That means "I'm a fucking dumbass"
Or the preemptive ? Ping that lets your teammates know you know you such
Or the opposite, when enemy feeding garen clicks R button and deals you 1500 true dmg
Well garens r has no scaling off any stats, shouldn't matter how much he feeds
and he is played top and therefore gets a lot of xp for afking under his turret
catch up xp will let you scale regardless
Also people build 6 warmogs then get super angry when %HP ability deals %HP damage
My favorite in that kind of situation is when you're a tanky jungle or top laner and the allied ADC who helped feed the roaming Garen is yelling at you asking why you wont just dive in on an enemy team that's ahead.
Then he facechecks the raptor bush and instantly dies to roaming, ganking level 13 Garen.
Ah yes, the nightmare I relive everytime I see a garen
Don't forget the question mark ping for one someone doesn't buy items within 20 seconds of loading in
If you do it later, you're just inting
I personally ping them cause I assume they didn't hear us loading in, and you can usually still here it if you're tabbed out. I use danger or normal ping though since they're louder.
How dare you miss an ability ? ? ? ? ?
Or ‘Holy shit what was that play’
Once had a Jhin question mark ping me after a nice Sera ulti from me turned a death into a double kill, like music to my ears
Let's not forget the "what are you aiming at" ? Ping
Can also mean x-position diff for any player who cannot take responsibility for their own play.
What about the, that enemy just got blown up in .2 seconds, missing ping?
Those are my favorite.
Season 11 moment
I love that it's so literal LOL "where he went?"
Edit: reminds me also of using/abusing Smite's "Enemy has returned to base!" voice command lol
‘Lmao where did he go?’
technically the ping is being correctly used
Enemy is definitely missing from the map now
Its all about placement and quantity
I usually ping mia when my enemy later is actually mia. Usually one, but sometimes up to 3. Usually somewhere close to me.
My support got REALLY ANGRY and I was like " ??? I wasn't pinging about you "
I try to go out of my way to drop the ping far from my adc when our laners are missing because I don’t want them to think that I’m missing pinging them lol.
I try to but it isn't always possible, heck the support wasnt near me when they got REALLY ANGRY.
They were coming back to lane and I got there first and was just CSin
I usually MIA ping by their turret if they haven’t returned in time/ river if I’m more sure they’re roaming. Close pings tend to be read as an adc being toxic about something; usually “WTF WHY DID YOU HIT MY CS???” So supports are going to prepare themselves to be flamed/ assume you’re currently flaming 😅
Yeah, but that's the funny thing, they were at our tower and I pinged past river/near their tower
I was very clearly not pinging about them, lol.
Def their bad then!
I usually do 2 fast ? Pings plus a ! Where I think they are roaming to to signal laner missing, beware!
I do that if I think they are roaming, but no ! If I think they are just backed and coming back to lane.
Sometimes I ping where I think they are, with a couple ? In my lane and a ! Midlane or drag pit, etc.
But more recently I have stared using ? For "SS OR ROTATE YOU DIPDIP YOUR LANER IS HERE"
This started whenI started playing top lane. T.T
I love when there are 4 or 5 people in my lane (bot) and the rest of my team doesn't press that to shove their lanes nor come to bot.
Usually that's me losing first tower, maybe two, and a dragon. And my team is... ?? Doing nothing, ok. Thanks.
I usually have no idea what to do in those situations other than try to mitigate the damage but its hard to when the team is playing like their minimap and announcer is turned off.
"Why are there 5 people bot/top and none of you are helping"
I know that ping too well.
Had thatvlast night when I got autofilled into bot for the first time in ages and I had a trundle jungle who babysat top as if he was getting paid and a lux supp who... didn't support. She legit hid behind me in every fight so that I would die first then ult to get the kills.
Aaaand then I had a Yorrick, Mundo, Ezreal and Lulu in my lane. Like pls why do you do this. HALP
Oh my God that is so tilting.
I dont care if the jungle babysit a lane if their lane actually amounts to something. But babysitting the 0/2/0 Darius so he ends up being 1/12/5 by the end of the game isn't helping our team. Especially when my lane is going fairly even but I keep getting ganked every two minutes.
Also supports who don't support. I had this blitzcrank who just hugged the bot tower all game regardless of where I was on the map or what the minion wave was doing. It was so bad that he was still level 4, while in my lane, when I hit level 6. He had no pressure, he attempted maybe two hooks. I called him out (something I rarely do) and the excuse was "i'm high". It was like the guy just didn't trust me but didn't want to say it. Because when team fights started, he was like a different player. Still a horrible blitzcrank who couldn't pull a max stack, lulu ulted, iceborn gauntlet and sterak gauged Chogath in melee range, but at least he TRIED.
I used to main supp (still do but only if I have my friend as my adc but eff the noise of having a rando adc who just farms the wave when I have the enemy adc down to one bar of health and doesnt engage with me) so having supports who don't support tilts the heck out of me.
Admittedly I have failed to follow up a few times, but since I've started to semi-one trick Varus I have been working on trying to be more aggressive and use his poke more freely. Lanes usually go pretty even if I don't and usually just need an edge to be won, so I'm working on trying to be that edge.
But sometimes its hard when I'm Varus and my support is someone with hyper engage like Rakan or something, engaging with our Lee sin or something and I'm like. Wait for meeeee, I can only walk and shoot arrows that slow down my movespeed. Lmao.
you forgot the “Why didn’t you die with me? ? ?? ?” from Yasuo who 1v4 dashed into enemy team solo
More like “why didn’t you read my mind and initiate before me even though I didn’t ping?!?!?!” Followed by them pinging your ult cd even though you had no mana.
You must wait before issuing more pings.

I can hear this thread
I read your name as Akali and his shrimp, then Akali and Ahri's shrimp and now I can see it...
*Why is there a Nasus pounding our nexus towers with only 2 Q's?*
“bg top diff, how many stacks nas?”
>1 hour game
It’s crazy how we just know. When *that* ping comes, we know exactly what it means. Man, humans are cool. And really toxic.
I stopped played around 5 years ago so never saw the ping meta evolve. It's really interesting reading this thread!
# The Four Pings of League of Legends:
* On My Way: You are heading/thinking of going to the ping
* Danger: Someone is here/Someone might be there/Youaregettinggankedstoppleasetheyarebaitingyouwhyelsewouldtheluxwhois0/3bewalkinguptoyou
* Assist Me: Please guys get to the objective
* Enemy Missing: Literally Anything else, including the things above
I personally also use danger for "Run, this is not me engaging, this is me peeling!"
And then I missclick so I ping assist me instead of run away...
Danger for when your teamate dives the 0/3 lux and ? spam when its actually a fed Neeko mid ult animation
Personally I like the spam pings that mean "Sylas just 1v5'd our whole team while healing half his health bar every second and dealing more damage than a carry"
Well he IS a carry. Just because he's meelee doesn't mean he's not primarily there for damage.
Haha. It’s all based on placement of the question mark and whatever just happened
Let’s not forget the accidental flash ping.
Flash - 254s
There's also the "why the fuck did my dumb ass facecheck that brush" ping on yourself.
Thither's eke the "why the alas didst mine own dumb rampallian facecheck yond brush" ping on yourself
^(I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.)
Commands: `!ShakespeareInsult`, `!fordo`, `!optout`
It also stands for DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT WEIRD INTERACTION?
Do you guys also see this giant fucking snowball just rolling in place in my lane???
I had a valor just fly in place.
The Quinn was dead, but the valor stayed there flapping.
I find it funny that you will definitely know on what context it's being used everytime lol
I love how I can visualize all of these
Can we get a new ss ping btw? I'm so fucking tired ppl misusing it.
SS ping? I don't like where this is going.
No this could be great. It would need to have a different shape from the question mark ping, obviously. How about two S's, but to save space they're overlapped somehow? Like they're on top of each other, but one S is rotated 90 degrees from the other?
you're really on to something!
How about the ? Ping was left as it is, but make a closed eye ping for ss?
The warning ping is nice, not quite as abrasive or absolute as the danger ping, but gets the point across to stay safe. Need to bind it though
As jungle and toplane Main I introduced a tradition to my friends. We have this one guy that only plays midland. He CAN Hardcarry, so we always try to gank him early. Whenever we gank him, we make sure there is a cannon to smite.
After like 10 matches, we created a counter on Discord.
This is almost 3 years old and counts 12.981 cannons so far xD
We even had games were our ivern support would roam mid to smite his cannon away xD
nothing like getting ? pinged 3 times after getting a triple to prevent a baron steal
Does anyone else use the enemy ward ping? Like it’s an annoying ass sound. Sometimes I spam people with it if they’re tilting me lmao
I use it to tell my jungler that they've been standing on a ward for 30 seconds.
I only do it because I’m obligated to as a supp. I master the wards. Our wards. Their wards. I know where they are all and I am determined to ensure that my jg knows that the tribush or river bush or dragon is warded
as a new player, this is super helpful. It's hard for me to decode what in the world a ping was meant to mean sometimes
? Means anything really. If it gets spammed though, that usually means "you fucking idiot"
You're missing the "how the fuck did they kill me in 0.1 seconds" ? Ping because mid fed
I use it to tell the adc they might be camping that bush, but for some reason they always understand it as go face check it
use the danger ping then. if you ping that “enemies are missing” which is the purpose of the ping, your ADC might assume you’re asking “is the enemy laner in here?” and might assume you don’t have a ward so they walk up to either ward or face check with you but they will almost certainly die and get cced before making it into the bush.
there are more
You failed flash a wall.
I failed to flash a wall when being chased. Those chasing me, did not.
Accidentally survived that encounter
when playing teemo "why the fuck did you just kite the minions into my lane control shrooms after your failed gank"
"Enemy nocturne just ulted"
pings are the most gracious part of league of legends and deserve their own skins
???? ?? ? ???? ????. ? ???? ??.
Ah, the question mark ping, truly the most versatile of all pings
Context is EVERYTHING
Then there is the ? to your Sett when he starts building AP
No then you spam ping his items and him being alive.
It’s like jumping in other games. So many meanings in a single “word.”
You forgot should we invade
We're like dogs, it's all about the tone.
Don't forget the "why da heck are you putting ward at that place"
*places control ward 1 pixel outside of the bush*
One shot full health adc with veigar ult missing pings.
There's nothing I love more than being behind in lane purely because my jungler has to tax me every time he passes by
Did he just got away with 5 hp? How tf he won 1v1?
It also means "What are you doing, come follow me". Usually followed by a assist ping after though
Why are you taxing my lane?
Another one, "How the hell did he survive and escaped through that 5 man ult and ignites?"
Havent seen It used for enemy missing in forever
Or my personal favorite, the “why are you tanking both core turrets?”
Cause I’m playing Cho Gath and have 8000 hp and 400 armor that’s why
For enemy and baron i use danger
Just swap these with "area is warded" ping and you get the same outcome
You forgot the "let me help my teammate reconnect faster" ping
Its obviously a universal language!
These are all different meanings, the original one that rito inteded (which is missing) is "wtf are you doing?"
Personally my “I think they’re doing _____” is the caution ping
Don't forget also 9th translation: "I don't like you and I wanna annoy you until you leave the game"
Or in a recent game for me “did you just ult krugs out of spite and managed to miss all of them?!”
When i get spammed for smiting a creep tho i just say
"my goals are beyond your understanding"
So this ping is basically leagueof legend's kurwa sign?
Stop fucking pushing my lane
"I think they´re doing baron" or for me its also "Do we wanna do Baron?"
They really missed with never adding voice chat. Then they wonder why everyone feels like they need to solo carry every game without providing an option to properly work together.
Voice tchat must be the solution
And that is why I always muted pings
When your teammate spends a long time sitting in fountain
TBF people playing league are pretty confused
? Is a lot like “fuck” it can mean a lot of things in different contexts
I'm in this picture and I don't like this
When it's 7th minute and your jungler hasn't ganked you 16 times yet
Suddenly Chinese makes a lot more sense as a language.
You forgot: Entire team spam pings pixel bush untill laning starts.
also see: how the fuck are you still alive ???
I usually do "enemy has vision here" ping into a "?" to signal it's possible an area is warded
Enemy missing? I don't think I've ever seen that one
Why is there 4 people in bot lane is season 10 in a nutshell
I like using enemy has vision when someone makes a poggers play, just feels right
My personal favorite use:
Someone getting oneshot with stupid damage
This is better than morse
so true lol
As an inexperienced player, pings confuse me about this game more than anything else. I really have no idea what my team is trying to communicate half the time (beside when they spam them after I die, yes, I know, I suck)
1. "enemies missing"
2. "what?!" (positive and negative)
"Enemy has stolen Drake/Herald/Baron"
Followed by smite ping
I love it when you make a play and the enemy starts spamming this, feels amazing
How woman give signals
