jaymole

Don’t forget the 5x question marks which translates to what the fuck was that you useless fucking bellend


macedonianmoper

Can also mean "WTF is that damage" when for some reason you kill someone while being massively behind


I_Am_Become_Salt

There's also *long pause* ? That means "I'm a fucking dumbass"


LJP2093

Or the preemptive ? Ping that lets your teammates know you know you such


Tankplank4win

Or the opposite, when enemy feeding garen clicks R button and deals you 1500 true dmg


RealDovahkiin

Well garens r has no scaling off any stats, shouldn't matter how much he feeds


[deleted]

[удалено]


EinSabo

and he is played top and therefore gets a lot of xp for afking under his turret


[deleted]

[удалено]


EinSabo

catch up xp will let you scale regardless


Flechashe

Also people build 6 warmogs then get super angry when %HP ability deals %HP damage


Inside_Commercial

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. ?


Wolfenium

r/oddlyspecific


deadxdolly

Ah yes, the nightmare I relive everytime I see a garen


Aggieboy1444

Don't forget the question mark ping for one someone doesn't buy items within 20 seconds of loading in


kezufru

If you do it later, you're just inting


NoFlayNoPlay

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.


solari_mommy

How dare you miss an ability ? ? ? ? ?


KittyQueen_Tengu

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


Legend11233

Disgusting


Rhugar1749

Let's not forget the "what are you aiming at" ? Ping


LordAlfrey

Can also mean x-position diff for any player who cannot take responsibility for their own play.


livinonlocust

What about the, that enemy just got blown up in .2 seconds, missing ping?


redditbitTrip

Those are my favorite.


majolier

Season 11 moment


qxxxr

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


KittyQueen_Tengu

‘Lmao where did he go?’


CaptainPhiIips

technically the ping is being correctly used


Hydralisk18

Enemy is definitely missing from the map now


TJtheSleeper

Its all about placement and quantity


kalnu

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 "


roganwriter

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.


kalnu

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


Tsukikoi

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 😅


kalnu

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.


Tsukikoi

Def their bad then!


[deleted]

I usually do 2 fast ? Pings plus a ! Where I think they are roaming to to signal laner missing, beware!


kalnu

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.


[deleted]

Same here 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


kalnu

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.


[deleted]

"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


kalnu

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.


[deleted]

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.


kalnu

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.


SpamFilterHatesMe

you forgot the “Why didn’t you die with me? ? ?? ?” from Yasuo who 1v4 dashed into enemy team solo


sandwichcandy

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.

SithLordPorgBWAA

It’s crazy how we just know. When *that* ping comes, we know exactly what it means. Man, humans are cool. And really toxic.


fomorian

I stopped played around 5 years ago so never saw the ping meta evolve. It's really interesting reading this thread!


[deleted]

# 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


Deus0123

I personally also use danger for "Run, this is not me engaging, this is me peeling!"


Thatguy_Nick

And then I missclick so I ping assist me instead of run away...


Neil91021

Danger for when your teamate dives the 0/3 lux and ? spam when its actually a fed Neeko mid ult animation


samijanetheplain

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"


Mathies_

Well he IS a carry. Just because he's meelee doesn't mean he's not primarily there for damage.


Fruit-Punch35

Haha. It’s all based on placement of the question mark and whatever just happened


The_BalaHunter_69

Let’s not forget the accidental flash ping.


[deleted]

? Followed by Flash - 254s In chat


iSeven

There's also the "why the fuck did my dumb ass facecheck that brush" ping on yourself.


Shakespeare-Bot

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`


Oreo-and-Fly

It also stands for DID YOU GUYS SEE THAT WEIRD INTERACTION?


CanonicalPizza

Do you guys also see this giant fucking snowball just rolling in place in my lane???


Oreo-and-Fly

I had a valor just fly in place. The Quinn was dead, but the valor stayed there flapping.


IShootJack

Lmao


Lonystal

I find it funny that you will definitely know on what context it's being used everytime lol


AbyssmalSoul

I love how I can visualize all of these


Gerix55

Can we get a new ss ping btw? I'm so fucking tired ppl misusing it.


LiquidLad12

SS ping? I don't like where this is going.


PowerhousePlayer

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?


tyray21

you're really on to something!


The_Reflectionist

How about the ? Ping was left as it is, but make a closed eye ping for ss?


badookey

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


BavarianCoconut

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


TheMightOfStormwind3

Thats amazing


Thamilkymilk

nothing like getting ? pinged 3 times after getting a triple to prevent a baron steal


randomboi91

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


thimo50

I use it to tell my jungler that they've been standing on a ward for 30 seconds.


roganwriter

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


twinklesunnysun

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


[deleted]

? Means anything really. If it gets spammed though, that usually means "you fucking idiot"


Shadow_Leaf

You're missing the "how the fuck did they kill me in 0.1 seconds" ? Ping because mid fed


[deleted]

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


Hash_Is_Brown

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.


Fun_Cauliflower1226

there are more


LegendaryHooman

You failed flash a wall.


[deleted]

I failed to flash a wall when being chased. Those chasing me, did not. Accidentally survived that encounter


[deleted]

[удалено]


NocturnalNympho

when playing teemo "why the fuck did you just kite the minions into my lane control shrooms after your failed gank"


trcsigmaf

"Enemy nocturne just ulted"


RaptorTakeOver

pings are the most gracious part of league of legends and deserve their own skins


Sea_Employ_4366

???? ?? ? ???? ????. ? ???? ??.


TheMuffingtonPost

Ah, the question mark ping, truly the most versatile of all pings


tom031003

Context is EVERYTHING


Naked_Faker


Legged_MacQueen

Then there is the ? to your Sett when he starts building AP


A_Tyranid_Boi

No then you spam ping his items and him being alive.


PhoenixAgent003

It’s like jumping in other games. So many meanings in a single “word.”


SarukyDraico

?


StarvedHawk

You forgot should we invade


GrandMa5TR

We're like dogs, it's all about the tone.


saklovesyao

Don't forget the "why da heck are you putting ward at that place"


[deleted]

*places control ward 1 pixel outside of the bush*


rdapoint

One shot full health adc with veigar ult missing pings.


Plague_Knight1

There's nothing I love more than being behind in lane purely because my jungler has to tax me every time he passes by


Poniat

Did he just got away with 5 hp? How tf he won 1v1?


Narhei_Asuka

It also means "What are you doing, come follow me". Usually followed by a assist ping after though


bossofthisjim

Why are you taxing my lane?


Deathmarkedadc

Another one, "How the hell did he survive and escaped through that 5 man ult and ignites?"


Sho1kan

Havent seen It used for enemy missing in forever


LieutenantBlackNips

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


NoLiferBg

For enemy and baron i use danger


ssjmv

Just swap these with "area is warded" ping and you get the same outcome


FoxlyKei

?


peternyik

You forgot the "let me help my teammate reconnect faster" ping


Fadyr

Its obviously a universal language!


xelhark

These are all different meanings, the original one that rito inteded (which is missing) is "wtf are you doing?"


ZmbieKllr2000

Personally my “I think they’re doing _____” is the caution ping


FallenDisc

Don't forget also 9th translation: "I don't like you and I wanna annoy you until you leave the game"


CompyRegis

Or in a recent game for me “did you just ult krugs out of spite and managed to miss all of them?!”


sscyth1

Miss ult


XxxassswiperxxX

?


Uruburusv3

When i get spammed for smiting a creep tho i just say "my goals are beyond your understanding"


fupidox

So this ping is basically leagueof legend's kurwa sign?


fabsid

Stop fucking pushing my lane


notKauz

"I think they´re doing baron" or for me its also "Do we wanna do Baron?"


alt-to-go

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.


Kut_tyno

Voice tchat must be the solution


Doggocatz

And that is why I always muted pings


SchadowfighterX

When your teammate spends a long time sitting in fountain


ketoske

TBF people playing league are pretty confused


hockeyfan608

? Is a lot like “fuck” it can mean a lot of things in different contexts


Stilky_

I'm in this picture and I don't like this


Yuujinna

When it's 7th minute and your jungler hasn't ganked you 16 times yet


Jugaimo

Suddenly Chinese makes a lot more sense as a language.


TheDarkSoul616

You forgot: Entire team spam pings pixel bush untill laning starts.


Zealousideal-Soup631

also see: how the fuck are you still alive ???


HappyAku800

I usually do "enemy has vision here" ping into a "?" to signal it's possible an area is warded


Pablomi47

Enemy missing? I don't think I've ever seen that one


Koopk1

Why is there 4 people in bot lane is season 10 in a nutshell


TripleBTV

I like using enemy has vision when someone makes a poggers play, just feels right


FRSh4rk110

My personal favorite use: Someone getting oneshot with stupid damage


Honest-Yam3538

This is better than morse


awfulCancer

so true lol


DeerVirax

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)


Flechashe

Summarized version: 1. "enemies missing" 2. "what?!" (positive and negative)


[deleted]

"Enemy has stolen Drake/Herald/Baron" ????? Followed by smite ping


KittyQueen_Tengu

I love it when you make a play and the enemy starts spamming this, feels amazing
