We've made it easier!
I touched on this last summer in a different blog
but we felt being able to mute other players was a little convoluted and could use a facelift.
We've now added some options to the contact card system. Here you will now have both a mute button and a report button. This could be incredibly useful to someone not wanting to hear close proximity mic spam.
Here you can Mute, Report, and put notes about the player. You can set them as friendly or enemy.
Reporting players for bad behavior is always good to leave a "papertrail" and many community servers scrub for these reports. Using in-game reporting options will capture all the relevant information required to check into them.
Always good to check with your favorite server of choice on their preferred way to report.
Muting options will provide feedback in the chat that you've muted or unmuted another player.
As always you can still get to many of these options by simply clicking on a player's name in-game chat. This version is particularly useful if they are not typing anything.
We do plan to fine tune the UI a bit more but this is a good, and hopefully, helpful start!
