Ah the old double meaning. Sort of like the triple or more meanings of Winterfell in Game of Thrones. Maybe there's some hidden meaning behind what's in this Summer of SW update and we just haven't figured it out yet.
"Rossum Eponine" & assorted other characters

When we made the Summer of SWTOR post we knew that inevitably we would start to see questions about what is coming after the Summer. We figured we would preempt that by just telling you about it right out of the gates. That is why we are talking about things beyond Summer.

I know you were just making the thread out of jest, but it gave me an excuse to complain about the Texas heat...and to answer you.

That's really cool. But all I can see is PVE and PVP stuff. Would you be so kind and tell us what things you have planned for the third great pillar of this game - roleplay? An update on the status and ETA for chat bubbles, perhaps? extending the duration of rest abilities so they can be used for roleplay? Being able to sit on all chairs? Hood up/down feature? A field for the biography? An appearance tab? Allowing people to enter empty versions of instanced areas for roleplaying purposes? Anything else? Certainly you can't have nothing planned for roleplayers at all. The roleplaying community would like to know what you have in store for us in the summer and beyond!

Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

I'm Finnish, your weather is tropical compared to what we have here.

As someone who dabbles in roleplay from time to time, i can tell you that there will never be a patch devoted to roleplayers.
We will be lucky if we get chat bubbles at all and if we do it wont be as part of a roleplayer focused patch, but just as a sidenotice in a regular patch.

Well in the Southern Hemisphere, October actually is kind of the start of summer. Spring at the very least.

So using terms like "summer" are actually pretty meaningless at all... unless you totally favour your US and European users and don't really care about APAC, which isn't the case here, oh wait....

*whispers* Summer actually starts in December though to February.

I do agree with you about Spring. Sometimes it's pretty hot here in Spring and considering the terrible winter we're having, i can't wait.

I respect your perseverence but you may have to accept that this not going to happen here is SWTOR.

They have already been clear that the engine performance issues were too great to implement this.

Don't get me wrong I would love chat bubbles but it's been a long time.
At this point it may improve some quality of life for the current players, but it will not bring in new players and you and I are already paying to play here wtihout chat bubbles.

I just dont see how chat bubbles would benifit EA financially anymore. I am sure this is not top priority or not even in the cards anymore.

I can verify that Texas has one season.. I spent a summer in Texas.. People were wearing shorts on Christmas eve.. I am someone from Seattle Wa.. it was a very odd sight to say the least..

There were a few days of bad weather.. During a 2 or 4 day period, there was a thin layer of frost on the ground.. The entire city shut down.. Malls and schools closed.. I found this odd as everyone drives over sized pick up trucks.. All they have to do is buy some sand bags or a few 50 lbs. bags of dog food and throw them in the back over the rear wheels..

Texas has some mean thunder storms and fire flies.. Which I thought was awesome..
