Actually, chat bubbles were in beta but were removed during late beta due to memory issues with people using clunky dinosaur computers.

Seriously people if you cannot afford $500 USD for a decent system you have far bigger issues than getting a MMORPG to run correctly.

Id very much like to see chat bubbles! like so many I find this feature essential in providing a more natural feel to conversation during Rp. Even with chat filters looking up in one corner of the screen just detracts from the sense of direction and flow of a conversation.

But I too agree it should be able to be turned off and preferably with a radio button within the UI perhaps within the chat box area.

And of course /say speech should still remain always visible in the chat box so you can see Rp happening when bubbles are turned off and catch up if needs be when they are on.

Id rather some simple features like this got some more thought and attention than half the things that get updated and I'm left noticing no difference save my game is running again that little bit slower.

I totally agree with OP we so need chat bubbles, I heard they are coming into the game soon. Was kinda hoping to see them in patch 1.2.

It can't be that hard to turn on chat bubbles surely.

Apparently, it is.

Too late. Guild Wars 2 is launching soon and has chatbubbles and many other RP friendly features build in at launch!

For roleplayers SWTOR certainly is the most dissapointing game in modern history. Which is a real shame because there is so much that could be done with its lore.

I don't believe its hard at all when you consider the fact that there are tons of low budget free to play korean games that all launch with chatbubbles. I don't believe its a matter of "techical difficulty", come on we aren't talking about implementing a massively complex physics system or an actual working duck and cover system or dynamic quests or whatever, it's just chatbubbles.

The problem isn't that they can't do it, the problem is they don't care. What are they communicating to us as roleplayers? They are communicating that we are way, way, way down on their care list and they will fix everything else first before they give us attention.

Well guess what, I'm returning them the favour and putting them on the bottum of my care list. I'm voting with my wallet and have cancelled my subscription today. If they don't cater to roleplayers like me, they don't deserve my money.

Yeah...I have been wondering where the chat bubbles have been since day one and would really...really love to see this implemented soon. It is so detaching for RP to not have these and also seems to make the world feel that much more empty when all the talk is funneled into a small square box in the corner of your screen (Or where ever you might have said chat log). Please Bioware! Chat bubbles are a must in any MMORPG - this is not one of those things you can really change, they are in every bigwig online game because they work and people want them, not because they are an old concept we just never bothered to complain about or anything. Please please please give us our word blobs! <3
