As long as you know, deep down in your heart, that gems are truly, truly, TRULY outrageous.
This would have been nice when robot amumu had a global laugh....

Yes, our long-term goal is to allow players to disable emote sounds without losing valuable gameplay information (including map pings). Look for this to improve in future patches.

You already answered my thread but you didn't exactly answer my request, will you also seperate ping and chat mutes?

And I have a little suggestion

We are going to discuss the best way to selectively ignore undesired behaviors like verbal harrassment, ping spams, and emote spams. There are several strategies that we can go with and still achieve our goal of allowing players to ignore certain behaviors without having to sacrifice valuable gameplay information. Separating ping and chat muting is one option that will work, there are a few others that we are considering.

Thanks for your suggestion regarding the chat window, I will look into it.
