What happened to chat bubbles?

They worked in beta, now they are sadly gone. I very much miss chat bubbles.

Thanks! All my friends know there was no way I would have chosen anything else as my main, haha.

Another one, do you guys play the server we use, and are "undercover" inside some guild, not saying they are part of the staff, but enjoying the game the same way we do (like Eve online staff), or do they have a special guild (like GW staff) ?
Easy answer from me - Sith Assassin. Throwing lightning at everything in my path and raining mass destruction down on my enemies is far too much fun. As for my guild? They have no idea who I am. ^_^

Regardless of what some may say this can definitely be a good thing if they really start communicating with us and not just to us.

People constantly complain that BW don't communicate enough. You can't expect the devs to talk much to us, as they are busy people. But we do expect you community staff to talk with us

I know many of us customers are ignorant and rude at times, and often unreasonable. But there are also many of us who are patient and enjoying the game. Furthermore this rudeness from many customers is purely because many are frustrating because we want the game to improve.

I hope you guys talk with us more and look forward to future updates

May I just say, this level of communication is marvelous. Making more of a personal connection with the community will go a long way towards alieviating the "is silence a good thing?" debates that keep popping up. (Obviously it doesn't fix everything and some will never be satisfied, but it is a excellent step forward.) So thank you for keeping the developer tracker rolling today, it's been much appreciated.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Awesome another community manager that reply's the first couple days then will disappear when actual problems or questions arise. Seriously about the only time anyone ever responds to a post BESIDES, the ones introducing new community people or pr is to close a thread or move them. With EVEN less people staffed at bioware I am sure they will be even more involved in the community...... Almost any game gw2, firefall, secret world and even WOW had people that would respond to questions on forums, that is non existent here. Oh wait Q& every other week. One of the big reasons why a lot of my friends stayed away from the forums they WERE(were as in dead severs so they left) irritated with bioware NO COMMUNITY INTERACTION.

Community Coordinator Eric Musco, as mentioned above, will act as the community liaison to fan sites and guilds. In addition to that, he will be coordinating our presence at any upcoming shows. He is currently playing as a Trooper.
I really appreciate the post. As a Guildmaster, I was curious as to what is intended for interacting more with guilds.

Well, I personally can only see positive things developing from this idea. As you can see from my join date which by the way I was lurking around weeks before deciding to create an account, am sticking with this game to the end. There are some aspects I wish were different in game, however I can not go back to those other MMO's. They don't fill the void that this one does. Simple as that. Good to meet you all!
