Mute your annoying teammates!

But, thanks to Riot Games, we can eliminate such scenarios by using a much unpopular/hidden feature called clutch mute. As the name suggests, it is a feature, when enabled, allows players to mask their teammate's audio functionality completely for a temporary period. To use the clutch mute feature, visit the communications tab under the control settings and enable the function.
