How To Disable Chat And Pings In League Of Legends
Last Updated: September 16, 2021
Are you sick and tired of your enemies flashing their emotes whenever they get a kill on you? Annoyed at your teammates for spamming you with unnecessary pings? Do you just hate talking to your team? If all these sound like you, you came to the right place. In this guide, we’ll show you how to disable all forms of chats and pings in League of Legends.
League of Legends by nature is a very competitive game. It is because of this nature that it sometimes brings out the worst in us. We’ve all been there. You mess up and make one mistake then your whole team starts flaming you for something that may not even be entirely your fault. So to keep you cool and calm, the best thing you can do is just mute your team. Heck, you can even mute your enemies if they start to annoy you too. Let’s take a look at all the ways to disable chats, pings, and emotes to prevent you from tilting. You know what they say, ignorance is bliss.
From the Game Client
Before you even enter a match, you can actually mute chat for both your teammates and your opponents. Just head to Settings>Interface>Chat. From there, you should see checkboxes that allow you to Show [All] Chat (Matched Game) and Show [Allied] Chat. Disabling All Chat will block all messages from the global chat, which means you won’t see anything sent there by your opponents and your teammates. Disabling Allied Chat, on the other hand, will block messages from your own teammates.
Alternatively, you can also do this while in-game. Just click on Esc (or the button set for opening your settings in-game) then head to Interface>Chat. From there, you should see the same options.
From the Scoreboard
You can also mute everyone or certain people from the game through the Scoreboard. To do this first click Tab on your keyboard. Then from the scoreboard, you’ll see three icons at the end of each player’s space. These icons resemble an exclamation point, a smiley face emoji, and a message logo. From left to right, these are the icons for Ping, Emote, and Chat. To disable or enable them, just click on each icon and you won’t see pings, emotes, or chats from that player.
Using Chat Commands
You can also use commands in the chat to block communication from a certain player in the same match as you. Below, we’ll list all the useful commands you can use to mute players in the game.
- /mute “summoner name” – Will mute all text from a player for the duration of your current game session.
- /mute all – Will mute all text from all players for the duration of your current game session.
- /ignore “summoner name” – Will mute a player during this game session and all subsequent game sessions.
- /ignore all – Will mute all players during this game session and all subsequent game sessions.
- /fullmute “summoner name” – Will mute all text and pings from a player for the duration of your current game session.
- /fullmute all – Will mute all text and pings from all players for the duration of your current game session.
Just hit Enter on your keyboard to type a command in the chat. You can also type /allcommand in the chat to see all the other commands you can use in the game.
So there you have it! We understand that League of Legends has a reputation for being toxic. Instead of being a part of the problem, we encourage you to just mute those who flame you for playing the game. So have fun and we’ll see you on the Rift!
