I completely agree. As a consumer I have the right to voice my complaint as it should be, with the pocket book. I am going to cancel my account until the UI is improved. I don't feel that the UI will be improved anytime soon because, as far as I know, the development team has not acknowledge our complaint in any way.

/Signed.

The UI is killing my eyes; I will really appreciate it if we can scale the fonts.

Not sure if anyone has seen this blog http://www.swtor.com/news/blog/20110429
Is this some kind of joke or a sarcastic slap in the face? Please note the part about the GUI font.

I canceled my account. In the reason why section I wrote, I can't read any GUI text and it is causing me physical eye strain.

There is a new content update http://www.swtor.com/gameupdates and yet not even a whisper about fixing the GUI.

I could barely see ability and item descriptions. Half the fun of a MMORPG is to gear up - not fun to strain my eyes while playing... SWTOR lost a subscriber because of it...

Add me to the list
Actually had to see an ophthalmologist because my left eye became extremely painful and sith red. no other game has caused this reaction and it took 2 weeks to heal. now I have to play with my L eye taped shut. (dedicated and maybe a little crazy The ophthalmologist told me it was from severe straining and will likely recur over time but changing the font size and color scheme would certainly help.

I play this both on my 52" lcd at 1080p and on laptop 1080p and i get massive eye strain too.. at least the chat can be adjusted but sometimes when you're trying to look at item stats its ridiculous and i have to do a double take. Also ive found when i've lowered the resolution all it does is make the font blurrier. You'd think it would of been logical for them to of had a setting to change it, considering they bothered with the chat size option.

Oh, this is my first post on here btw, so hi everyone

Definetly need scaling UI - even on hughe 55" flat font is a pain. Full HD Res
