Default Mute mumble channels KEYS. SL ears exploding.

Right now as SL you have 4 radio channels open at all time :

Local
Squad Channel
Squad Leader/CO Channel
Game speech channel

I know that I can mute the game speech voices or reduce their volume, but they're quite usefull at times.

This makes communication hard as sometimes some random SL that wants to talk to squad 8 actually talks to all squads. Sometimes you have some SLs talking about strategies while you're trying to communicate with your squad in a fight. Sometimes you want to find who needs a medic in Local but your squadmembers are talking to each others.

Exemple of a heated fight as I'm leading squad 5 :

"Hey Squad 8 would you mind //Heli- "AFFIRMATIVE A VEHICLE IS ON THE WAY"// driving the APC here for transport.."
"Which squad //Johny333 from squad-Enemy at 105!!!// //Gagou14 in local - "I NEED A MEDIC!!!!"is talking to me?"
BOOM BOOM BOOM
"Squad 4"

Simple solution : Keys that you can press to mute specific mumble channels. Pressing the key again unmutes them.

Say for exemple :

P = Mute/Unmute Local channel.
O = Mute/Unmute SquadLeaders/CO channel
I = Mute/Unmute In-squad channel

Of course those keys are just for exemple.

I suggest just getting used to it, one of the biggest skills for a squad leader to overcome is the ability to process multiple feeds of information simultaneously in the most efficient and effective way possible. I understand it can be overwhelming at times, but if squad leaders start not knowing if you can hear them (if you're muted or not) when they actually need to get a hold of you... the entire system will start to break down.

Agree with bluedrake but who do so many plonkers spam all SL s, when talking to an individual squad, had one twonk last night directing trans and so on even after asking him to use the appropriate key he continued.

That would be a easy fix. Just have the transmit sound cue and the text at the bottom saying who's talking, but no actual sound transmited, just to signal you someone is trying to get a hold of you, so you can unmute them and respond when you can.

This is why I love ACRE for Arma so much. You can put individual radios on your left or right speakers and control the volume of each individually. That makes it so much easier to filter what is coming from where and what has priority. But we probably won't be getting ACRE styled radioes anytime soon.

Anyways, the left/right/center option per channel might be a fix if possible with mumble? Other than that, keeping your squad together and trained to mostly use local if not otherwise possible reduces the spam from that direction and using individual squads channels instead of all SLs can help reduce radio clutter too. It's all about radio discipline. And train your squad to shut up if you call for "hold comms" or "break break break".

This.

It might be bit radical but last night playing it was a nightmare and we only runned mortar support squad

I partially blame lazy players and SL's too - lazy because they have the tools given to them to mark enemy positions, fobs and APC's but instead they go on about it on chat for 5 minutes cluttering the comms

A mute key does not determine if they will respond to you or not. There are many times there is a squad leader you can't get ahold of because he doesn't respond.

Mute keys are useful. Me actually being a useful squad will sometimes need to mute my squad to hear other SLs, or vice versa.
