What does HAN stand for?

How about now?

In gaming and online chat, HAN stands for "How about now?" Most often, gamers will type "HAN?" to ask other players if now is a good time to start a game or perform a coordinated in-game maneuver.

Impatient gamers might spam HAN if they're waiting on you to begin a game or gank an opposing player. If you're busy, you can always say you're not ready ATM, or you can head the inpatient gamer off preemptively by telling them you're going to be AFK.


Can we start the game yet?
Sorry, I was AFK. Now's good
