I personally, hate announcements. I don't care who made what. Or what event is going on. So seeing them, constantly, all the time gets aggravating. And then theirs world chat. Its an extreme hassle trying to talk to someone, see just trade chat, etc, when whole a bunch of people are talking to each other in world chat. I would just like the option to turn both of them off. The same would be far less annoying. I see no reason why their is not an option for them to be on or off in options.
