    Need better "Mute All" options

    iAmEFFeX

      We need a Mute All option in the lobby itself, I think it's crazy that something this simple was over looked. I have to go through several options in game just to mute players. Anyone else agree?

              Agreed....I really wish that Treyarch and IW would collaborate on some things that work well and make a good CoD

                It is the worst feature I have ever seen, I was hoping it was fixed on ps4. You can't mute individuals in game only mute all. Which is where you want to mute that 12 year old muppet who thinks his playing sing star. So you mute all forget to turn it off b4 the game ends and you can't unmute all from the lobby which is where you want it. So next game starts and u forget again it's terrible and it keeps muting new lobby members. So bad, seriously do they even think about this stuff b4 they put it in?

                 

                infinity ward development meeting: hey we need a mute all feature coz trearch has one and people love it. lets make it better by making it in game not in the lobby. perfect! With an option like that we wouldn't even need standard in game muting. Ahhh pure genius those trearch guys are so dumb.

                  There should be this:

                   

                  @ GAME OPTIONS MENU (not in game or lobby)

                  Mute options: toggle

                  - start with all un-muted

                  - start with all muted except friends and partymates

                  - start with all muted except partymates

                  - start with all muted

                   

                  when in PRE-GAME LOBBY (or party)

                  START button, then TRIANGLE: select one option

                  - un-mute all

                  - mute all except friends and partymates

                  - mute all except partymates

                  - mute all

                  - mute individual (which leads to full player list and toggle on/off) for each

                   

                  when in GAME

                  START button, then TRIANGLE: select one option

                  - un-mute all

                  - mute all except friends and partymates

                  - mute all except partymates

                  - mute all

                  - mute individual (which leads to full player list and toggle on/off) for each

                      I have not spent a whole lot of time looking at the featured, but I do admit I do not find it easy (anything that changes is perceived as not being easy until you get used to it.. then it is as simple as pie.)

                       

                      ... assuming one knows how to make pie.

                       

                      There may be a simple way to get all this done.

                      Agreed'. I was very disappointed when I found out about this aswell, especially while playing in HC modes you cant even see who's mic is being a pain or who is screaming let along go through all the sub menus to try and mute them.

                      • Re: Need better "Mute All" options

                        Definitely agree, a huge step back from the previous methods. 1. There should be an easier method to mute in the lobby, ala BO2 "mute all but party," not MW3 scroll through entire list and individually mute everyone.  2. it should not take that many buttons to mute in match either.  Granted, at least with PS4, you can just party chat and set it to "mute everyone," which I admit has been very nice.

                            You can do these options:

                             

                            when in GAME

                            START button, then TRIANGLE: select one option

                            - un-mute all

                            - mute all except friends and partymates

                            - mute all except partymates

                            - mute all

                            - mute individual (which leads to full player list and toggle on/off) for each

                             

                            ...there are just some unnecessary button presses and these settings should be allowed in pre-lobby and before playing, at the main menu.
