In Overwatch, there are 3 options for dealing with toxic players. Mute, Report, and Block.

Report is pretty self explanatory, but what's the difference between Mute and Block?

    No offense, but this seems rather trivial. These options are pretty universal among online games. – Timmy Jim May 24 '17 at 19:03

    @TimmyJim Fair point. I asked because I didn't know the answer myself before researching. – Stevoisiak May 24 '17 at 19:04
  • Doesn't change the fact that anyone can look it up on the off chance they don't know what it is. Also when you click them for players the game even tells you what's occurred. It tells you "Communications with X blocked" etc – n_plum May 25 '17 at 12:44

Mute will keep you from hearing a player on voice chat or seeing what they type in-game.

Block will prevent a player from private messaging you or adding you on Battle.net/Xbox Live/PSN.

    These same options exist on Xbox, but are not special to Overwatch. – DCShannon May 24 '17 at 16:56
