I love the atmosphere in the Dark Zone and I especially like the idea of people running around being able to talk to me. The game does that extremely well and I don't want to have to mess with proximity chat, it would ruin a lot of the dark zone and even group play experience.

A problem remains, though, that we are still in an online game and some of the content capable of coming through our speakers is NOT appropriate, even for an audience like the one this game targets. I'm also sure there will be exploits (mic spamming to cover movement and action sounds).

Please allow us to mute specific players. It's going to save many headaches.
