There's a lot of both bad and good out there on the ladder. I think setting good boundaries and knowing what gets under your skin is the key to enjoying your ranked experience.
Here's some features you can use to control how you interact with chat especially:
- Mute: From the tab scoreboard choose someone to mute and then choose whether to mute their chat or pings as well. If someones being especially disruptive, sending a verbal abuse report auto mutes them as well.
- Party Chat: Either in game or pre game you can set your chat settings to "Party Only" if you dont want to see chat from either your team or enemies. Totally fine with us!
- /Deafen. If you normally enjoy chat but sometimes find it distracting and just need an off switch then typing /deafen will mute every chat channel and send a message to the other players in the game that you wont be responding anymore.
Hope you enjoy your ranked experience and welcome to League!
