Just felt like sharing I guess. lol Nice solution Mr. GM!
That is too hilarious. xD

Thank you for quoting that, I would have missed it.

Apparently the devs have better things to fix, as in:
http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=278285

Patch day = game broken. Get used to it, lol.
I don't judge a game by how old or new it is, I judge it by what it is when it is presented to me.

Compare it to most AoE effect it is ridiculous.
Strobe effects can cause seizures in people. No game maker should EVER INTENTIONALY PUT STROBE EFFECTS INTO THEIR GAME. The flashing bar is a strobe effect people must be able to turn it off.

I like swtor but I'm beginning to think bioware are a bunch of clowns.

There you go. Some poor messenger is probably running to the TOR team screaming "OMG YOUR GAME IS GIVING PEOPLE SEIZURES!" - They'll probably fix/change/revert it soon.

Strobe effects come in almost every game, that being said so does the epilepsy disclaimers come standard on every game box as well. Do I feel for those people? Absolutely, but at the same time if I had the same problem, I wouldnt be gaming.

An option to turn off the strobe effect would be a quick and easy fix for them, personally I love the new ui/cooldown system.

The flashing is TERRIBLE. It makes it HARDER to see which skills are ready. All of mine flash, every time global cool down finishes. It is horrible. There wasn't a problem before. Typical, sooo typical for a game company to fix what isn't broken. This is how you ruin a great title.

Please, give us the OPTION to use the old system. If you are going to add "features" give us players the ability to choose.

You don't have a focus/rage character then.

Again.

The AoE have bigger and stronger strobe effects.

I don't know what is pushing people to write such massive hyperbole...

I'll bet you they don't fix it soon (as in before the next weekly maintenance downtime) . And I sure hope I'm wrong.
