No; as I said, "changes will be made to the global cooldown and we'll bring you more information when we have a solid timeline to share." Discussions on that specific issue have been happening since early yesterday and will wrap up today. Hopefully I'll be able to share more later on when you can expect a patch, but it won't wait until March or until 1.2.

I mentioned that broader UI customization options are coming during Game Update 1.2 because many others in the thread had opinions on the UI of the game, generally.

Last but not least; add-ons are still under discussion, but there's no current timeline for when that functionality might be implemented. While add-ons would give a lot more potential options (assuming a robust add-on community), there will still always be many people who want to use the game's default UI (new players, for example!). Therefore it's important for us to ensure the UI that we have works well, hence our ongoing development and expansion of UI options.

Ok so people actually get physically sick because of this change and BW does nothing? One thing is it being just worse UI as you can't see what ability you can use due to constant gray out. But completely different one is people suffering from illness while playing due to crazy flashing. This is no longer whine because I don't like it case, this is people not being able to play because they are just simply getting sick. If this doesn't call for immediate fix then you just lost another ton of subs BW, good job!

If only the ability thats coming off cooldown does the animation, i think that may fix the issue. but other than that, i have no problem with the way it is now. no sickness at least lol.

These would have been helpful to say yesterday. As it is, the post yesterday created confusion because it offered no timeline, but then immediately began discussing UI changes in 1.2, which made a lot of people tie the two together and think "oh, no more changes to the UI until 1.2 in March."

Is there a way we can make these addons available by the official swtor.com website? Third party sites like curse.com were shady and I'm pretty sure they were the reason I got hacked back before the Authenticator came out.

i like the way it is now, however i understand that it is physically bothering some people.

I would like to see the mechanics remain but the color, transpanency, and flashes be custommizable. also things that are out of range need to be a different color etc.

That's my biggest problem with it. It isn't making me sick or anything. It is just not functional, state-dependent abilities were the main reason I was looking at the hotbars to begin with. Some long cooldowns were hard to see before and the new UI does fine for that with the flash for me.

Ultimately, I'd prefer countdown numbers at 10 seconds below.

Is an option to enable chat bubbles for /say, /yell and /emote chat also slated to be part of these "broader UI customization options during Game Update 1.2"? They are an important and much requested (G)UI feature that's been promised to be a high priority item but still missing, after all.

I don't like them. It's not "horrible" or "terrible" for me, but it's annoying.

I post since the poll is locked even though it was started just yesterday. I guess you didn't want to see the "They're terrible" choice skyrocket into like 90%?
