Game Update 1.6 is on the test server. Unfortunately, chat bubbles still aren't part of it, according to the Patch Notes.

I guess we'll have to wait for Game Update 1.7 then.

My goodness, more than 1000 posts. I will say this much, I don't mind if they implement chat bubbles the only thing I would be concerned with is performance. The last thing I would want is a crippled experience because a bunch of folks want to bubble their words... remember the issues people were having with shadows back in 1.4? Yeah, not fun. If they ever implement chat bubbles it must be done with care.

edit: and a toggle option of course, for those who don't want to see them.

More than 1000 replies...when will Bioware finally come here and discuss the topic? At 2000? When can we finally expect to see chat bubbles in the game? The lack of communication is ridiculous.
I've cancelled my subscription due to the lack of Chat Bubbles.
I will never give EA or Bioware another cent or play any of their games or use any of their software again until speech bubbles that fully display /say, /yell and /emote chat are implemented in Star Wars: The Old Republic and the needs of socializers and roleplayers are finally taken seriously.

I don't see what the big problem is, even if they lower fps i have 112, give me dam bubbles even if they lower fps by 20.

I really feel like Bioware just don't care, its Dragon age 1 > 2 all over again. bioware you are no longer my fav games dev anymore, maybe one day when you stem cell some ears.

I simply cannot believe that Chat Bubbles remain an unresolved issue.

Does anyone have any idea when this might possibly be implemented? I'm an accountant by training and trade and will not pretend to understand the intricacies of coding for MMOs. Are Chat Bubbles really all that sophisticated and/or cost-prohibitive to implement?

Nearly ever low budget Korean f2p mmo has them, i seriously doubt it, but then again, who the f is EA hiring on its road to greedy and wealth? drops outs from college? maybe.

P.S. The elder scrolls online is using the same game engine as SWTOR but a far more advanced version, as bioware refused to get updates to the engine in the whole production time, so lets see if TESO has chat bubbles

How one can make Star Wars RPG without most needed RP feature? I saw three times more roleplaying during two weeks of Guild Wars 2 then in four months of SWTOR. Can you believe this? More RP in f..king Guild Wars than in Star Wars. This is ridiculous, but GW has chat bubbles so you actually can RP in there.
