Is there a way to turn off the chat?

The whining and flaming that goes on really takes away from the experience.
I use the filter for the bad words, but it doesn't stop the bad attitudes and offensive comments.


I love the game,  you guys have done a great job with the content and game play. (Can't beat the price too)
I'm looking forward to World of Warplanes.

Keep up the good work.

Right click on the name of individuals you want to ignore and select ignore.  Their messages will no longer come through.  (You only have to do this once, they remain blocked.)

Only down side is it doesn't block pinging.  Can't have everything I guess.  You can't turn chat off, nor should you; some of us still try to use it to  coordinate the team and convey important info.

No. If you don't like swearing you can turn that off though

Doing this will completely disable the ALL chat window messages in battle.
1. Go to \World_of_Tanks\res\gui\flash
2. Make a backup of "BattleMessenger.swf".
3. Delete "BattleMessenger.swf".
4. Make a copy of "BattleTimer.swf" and rename it to "BattleMessenger.swf".

5.  FIVE out of the last ten topics posted have been asking about how to turn off the chat.  Is there a troll on right now spamming everyone?

Even if there is, for the pete of sakes can you please read the existing topics and try to keep it local?  Or, even better, read what has been posted to those topics?  You may find that your question has been answered already.

Actually, forget that.  Does anyone know of a way to turn off forum posts of people asking how to turn off in-game chat?

Problem solved. But you lose everything in the process.
