League of Legends Patch 13.4 Adds New Exclusive Party Chat

Patch 13.4
Patch 13.4 Riot Games

League of Legends Patch 13.4 has finally introduced the party chat channel. This lets you send messages only to your pre-made party members and no one else.

You can type the /party, /pt, or /p commands on the chat console to gain quick access. Alternatively, you can press the Tab key until you arrive at the party chat channel. You will know if you’re on the appropriate channel if you can see the [Party] tag.

Now, League of Legends can be very toxic at times. In fact, some people have resorted to using the automatic chat abuse detection system to mute themselves which, according to the developers, is not the system’s intended purpose.

In Patch 13.4, you can deliberately prevent yourself from using the text chat by typing the /muteself command. If you want a more robust approach, /deafen is a command that not only prevents you from using the text chat but also stops you from seeing messages from other players. These can be undone simply by typing their respective commands again. Besides that, other players are notified if you have muted yourself.

The /muteself and /deafen are welcome additions to the game, especially if you just want to play League of Legends without having to blurt out hurtful words to others in a fit of rage.
