  • Mute System Thoughts

    • First of all: its still a bad Idea to mute people in a Team Oriented game which NEEDS communication (and that more then just missing, we need wards push and get back)
    • The recent change was a right step
    • I still have somehow unlimmitted reports, report people and get them back - every player is a mute machine
    • You cant make an automated penality system - get over It and review the reports
    • Playing with muted people is a pain in the ass, you should design a new penality

    Suggestion: something like this:

    Sorry for that horrible paint work (which took me 5 sec) but you get the idea: make mute optional.

      Why must I play with muted players in my team?
      What did I do wrong?
