Better social system.
Been playing a few days and haven't seen a single person speak in chat / talk.

Also during PVP people keep yelling in there mics / playing music... We need a way to disable hearing other ******s using mics!

You can disable the mic globally for yourself in the options menu. You can also mute individuals (both mic and chat) manually by using the CTRL menu.

As far as a better social system, yes, I agree. However, I have seen plenty of people chatting and I talk to people in groups often. I have never had a conversation with anyone or heard anything coherent or useful out of the in game voice chat though. :(

From Dev Blogs (http://community.defiance.com/):

Chat and VOIP Ė This isnít broken, we just believe people should use their psychic abilities more. Can you hear what Iím saying to you right now? Yes, exactly. Weíre working on it.

Chat & VOIP Ė Back on the list again, we have some fixes for this, both that we can do server side but also client side. Unfortunately client patches of this nature canít be deployed till the 15th as mentioned yesterday.

Chat & VOIP Ė Yes, this isnít going off the list. We know. We hear it. We see it.
