Calling MIA / SS
What is the best way to tell your team that your laning opponent(s) is missing?
Should blue-ping the map that leads towards them, yellow-ping (Fall back) on top of them?
Should you stop for a moment to type [lane] mia/ss or care [lane]?
Should you say which champ is missing?
I want to make sure that my team knows that my lane is empty and that they could be in danger, but I don’t want to become a pest pinging the map constantly when Twitch wants to stealth either. Assume that voice-chatting programs are unavailable. What is the general method that most players know and use?

I generally assume people know which lane has which champion so I only say: mid mia
There are cases in which I do other things:
I know which way enemy champ is going – I use several pings to highlight champions path with an additional back ping if my teammates don’t respond.
My opponent has been gone away – I say “mid still mia, prob [whichever lane is most exposed]”
Enemy jungler walks through my lane – “[jungler] going [direction]”
play with people who have great map awareness and notices when a champ is not on the minimap would be the best. Short of that, I find pinging likely paths a mia champ might go for ganking or if you notice a champ passing through a ward pinging that works too, especially at lower elo levels. Typing in-game chat with the new alerts of item purchases just clutter things and provides no in-game sound.
