PING PING PING PING PING PING PING PING PING

So youíve had a great game as a AD or AP carry. Youíve grown to the point where you can effectively poke at the enemy team and harass them at will without any real ability for them to fight back without dying. Youíre a skilled player that can land your abilities with ease. Meanwhile, the enemy is left to shiver in your wake.

But just when you approach a low enemy team, when every movement counts, you hear the noise that screws up everything.

PING PING PING PING PING PING PING PING PING

It is your clueless ally, homedawgjoe, the 0-7 Nunu blasting you with the annoying retreat ping. You look to your minimap to see if there is any threat oncoming, the annoying sound and yellow glare like a family member sneaking behind you and throwing their hands over your eyes. It completely throws off your focus. At a time in the game when a pentakilled is in sight and your skills are the most tested, this annoying ping screws up everything. You miss your skillshot, the entire team jumps upon you, and you die because one of your teammates slammed you with repeated blasts of the most annoying sound in League of Legends.

PING PING PING PING PING PING PING PING PING

Why on Earth is there not any way to mute this? Iím constantly paired up with other players who throw games and make things rough on me because they want to play armchair strategist with the team and yell and ping at everyone whom arenít doing what they want. Usually I can just mute these annoying folks and get their Ďopinioní out of my chat channel. However, I canít do a thing about their pings. And it is the most annoying thing in the world when theyíre the first to die in a TF and instantly my team assaulted by their retreat pings over and over again, throwing off the entire fluidity of a teamfight and making life rough. I canít shut it off. Iím forced to listen to this annoying sham sound off over and over again when Iím trying to listen to what spells are going off and what their team is doing. And then I die, the team loses the game, and there is nothing I can do about it.

In short, is there a way to shut this thing up? If not, is there a way to shut off ALL pings during a game? Thereís no reason why you shouldnít be able to mute specific peopleís pings as well as their chat.

Signed,
Revshawn

PS: It made me miss my game-winning skillshots as Ahri. I had gone 17-5 and ended up missing a triple kill and dying.

Muting a chat is easy. Just hold tab, click on their sound icons, and then they are muted.

Muting a player does not mute his/her pings any more. Strange decision Riot made when they released their "spam ping block code" patch.

agreed, players should be able to selectively mute other player's pings.
Reasons:
-One you already show the ping on the mini map and on screen
-People abuse the ping and it is super annoying.
-Disable pinging of the little pow w/e they are called things in aram, or at least show who is doing it so we can report them

Please no. Just ask people only to ping when needed. Perhaps you could decrease the volume of concurrent pings. If you can mute pings, people will miss all sorts of mias and such and make it much harder to communicate in ranked.

There's no way to turn down the volume of pings without negatively impacting other important aspects of the game. This feature is necessary.

ya this is retarded.. I mute a player cause he is pinging all over the map... and it didn't do anything... I reported him for spamming but in the chat log it only shows us telling him to stop... no actual proof of him spamming... I hope they fix this ****..
