Can you turn off blue squad dots?

Can you be in a squad, but hide all the 'blue dot' indicators showing you where everyone in your squad is?

In the event I don't get a chance, thank you all for the company and help when I needed it from time to time.

    That's what I more or less did. The biggest place it's an issue is that new zerg meta with all the chests. They are really hard to see with all the blue dots. I just made sure I was in the squad when it started and then left after the gate opened.

    Coming from something where everyone on the map had an icon I am disappointed we do not have the same here. It allows you to see where the activity is on a map at a glance.

    In something big, like Palawadan, seeing squad icons means you can follow along with where most people are and do not wind up fighting a big mob by yourself. If a bunch of dots are all going to one small location there is probably a chest there too.

    New to the game? Feel free to give a yell if you need PVE help.

    You can also zoom in your mini map to get better resolution between the dots and other map artifacts.

    So long and thanks for all the Skritt
