Trash talk

Call of Duty Ghosts General Discussion

Trash talk

Sorry, I just replied on a thread, but would like to see if there will actually be a mute button that stops new jump ins from talking.

I don't always mute, so maybe holding down the x button while in a crouch position for 5 seconds would do the trick.  Some of these little guys just have some potty stink that needs to stop coming from there mouth.  As much as I enjoy telling them to get a job and buy their own xbox, what can be done about this?  Lots of racial crap too, but at least their of age.  I don't have virgin ears, but kids do, or at least I don't talk trash with them.

Phones are smart enough to recognize tones, so would like to see what headway has been made on this. They have to hear it as well, so only way to really make it work is put in an 18 and under lobby or a no headset lobby.

Really needs to be a mute button that works.

That is what mute and avoid is for and report if they are really bad with the language. I doubt IW will do anything more about it. sort of doubt it will even have the mute all but party option that BO2 has.

Back/a or select/x(?). I mute in the middle of the game all the time.

Personally the "Mute All" button that is confirmed to be returning for Ghosts should mute anyone that is not in your party OR friends list and it should auto mute anyone who joins after you do the mute all as well.  I hate how it just mutes those in the room and then you have to go in and mute others as they join.

It would be nice that if in the game there was a "Mute All but party and friends" option when you pull up the score (back button). They already have a individual mute button per player, why would this be so hard in the game?

1. MUTE exists for a reason.

2. if they still bother you, play on PC/wiiU both consuls have drastically less assholes/aka alot more mature people playing online, mostly because they repel the little kids.

The OP knows that there is a mute. He is simply asking for an easy way in-game to auto mute everyone (as opposed to one by one) and that also auto-mutes those who join mid-game.

Switching to PC/WiiU is not very practical. People like the platforms they play on and saying that switching is a good solution is just not practical. Stating that more mature people play online on a PC than on an Xbox/PS, I'm not sure about that and where you get your stats. There are plenty of mature people on all the platforms and they all have their share of the immature ones.

I actually do not know how to mute one on one.  I can deal with crack heads and idiots.  For the most part its a rarity, most matches go pretty good, so maybe something easily gotten over.  If I were a parent, I would be livid though.  Don't get me wrong some of the kids are cool.

Not sure what a new lobby would look like:

Enter your age

That's probably about it.  I do think there is voice tech there, so maybe COD sets the standard on of these days.  Not a shot, good game guys, .....

Anyway

If on the xbox you cant mute the profile and until you un mute them they are muted the rest of the time you are online.

It is not really the gane devs responsibility to add in any feature to do this beyond a simple mute feature. Anything more would be the realm of the console developers responsibility instead.
