Kiting

verb
A hit and run strategy where a player alternates between attacking an opponent and running away, while staying just out of range of the enemy’s attacks
 
In all games, the term kiting means pretty much the same thing, but there is a distinction between kiting enemy NPCs, which is generally not that difficult, and kiting enemy players, which is generally a more advanced skill that can always be improved upon at a professional level of gaming.
Etymology : a semantic extension of the definition of kiting, flying a kite. This term arose in MMORPGs but has expanded to some other gaming genres such as MOBAs. The reason for this extension is because kiting in game is similar to leading the enemies around as if they are attached, like a kite to a string.
Source : friend, “Ya, Faker is so good at kiting, I could never pull that off.”
