Yes, people should be able to mute and hide chat for multiple reasons. On the roadmap.
Not interested in this game for the social aspect, please allow me to hide and mute the chat completely.
I agree, also give us the option to hide other player characters. I play my games like how I live, solo in a multiplayer world.
I need to not have chat active when I type something or use a “type command” in game. I use / for a type-to-chat command. It types in chat and spams out when in town if I talk to my partners.
