Please add me to this list as well, playing on a HDTV really sucks when I only have choices between Squint or move my couch 3 feet forward.

I have a 52" I'm playing on and I can't read text either. So I hope they do an update quick cause I'm starting to lose interest in the game.

Right-click on the chat tab at the top of the chat window and you should get a drop-down menu that includes a "Font Size" option.

You can't. The people making this game think its only kids with ultra vision who play it apparently.

Try World of Warcraft, you can change all aspects there, getting readable text is nothing but a mod away.

Bioware, I need bigger fonts in the entire interface if I am to stay around. (That means tooltips, codex, talent trees, and not just the damn chat)

I am 18 and i have no trouble seeing things on a small smart phone screen, but the text in game makes my eyes hurt.

I cant even see the name of an ability under its cast bar.

I support changing font size.

Why do people always say "change resolution" ? Ever try it? IT DOESN'T WORK - they just scale the interface so it takes up the same physical amount of space. ie, doesn't get larger.

"Quick fix: change resolution" When I opened a ticket in-game.

The fix, it does nothing

Very fun game, too bad it's unplayable for me.
