I'm not really new anymore at summoner level 20, but this feels like a noob question so I'm asking here.
I've been mostly playing caster carries and going mid in the majority of my games. I've gotten pretty good at farming mid, getting last hits, staying alive, sometimes even ganking, the whole she-bang. I've also gotten plenty good at calling when my target is miss, as well as where my best guess was they were headed.
An example of the sorts of ways I'll say this is:
"Trist miss mid, suspect back but care"
"Ashe miss mid, suspect bot"
"Heimer miss mid" (no further info since I didn't see where he might have gone and doubt he backed since he was full health, etc)
The reason I'm posting this thread is that 90% of the time 30 seconds later someone will get ganked and then, this is the part that gets me, WHINGE IN TEAM CHAT ASKING WHY THE MISS WASN'T CALLED. I'll reply with "^^^^^^ I just called it right THERE" and either get an "oh I didn't notice" or just a "that's not how you call miss noob".
So how am I supposed to call miss in a way that people will notice and react to instead of ignore and apparently go unread and useless? I've taken to shift-home ctrl-c after typing it and ctrl-v/enter several times to make sure the message goes through like 3 times and then pinging the map along the path I think the miss is taking, but then I just get "spam" complaints from my team, so I can't win either way.
