I look forward to this becoming a reality.

Hopefully it actually does become a reality.

Not sure, but I want them to finally be added! How much longer will they string us along? We've lost so many great players because this feature is still missing and are loosing more every day due to it.
Perhaps it's time to pester support about how to enable chat bubbles since the game rules state they are in there? Since the rules actually state they chat bubbles when typing are the intended behavior, I guess chat bubbles missing is actually a bug and we could write bug reports, too...

So do I!

SUBSCRIPTION WON'T BE RENEWED due to the lasting lack of CHAT BUBBLES and how long-term subcribers are treated by EA/Bioware.

Thanks for the input, it's reassuring to know that the developers are aware of the players' concerns.

OMG STICKY THIS! You talk about adding to game play! I miss that from other MMOs (SWG, WoW, etc)!

Thanks to my buddy (who had quit the game because of the lack of chat bubbles shortly after launch) I'm back for a couple of months. He's found some gametime cards he had bought back in the day and gifted them to me after hearing my subscription had expired so I can keep this thread up to date, which I'll do.

Let's convince the devs to add chat bubbles before those gametime cards expire, shall we?

I've thought it over, and I agree that toggle options for the 9999 second recharge/chair/med table/whatever is great. Chat bubbles, however, I hope never show up in TOR. When I think chat bubbles, I think a dozen RPers/spammers typing into chat and flooding the area above their heads with text. This 1: Stops me from seeing enemies 2: fogs up the area so I can't see important posts, and 3: Is a great way for spammers and other bothersome peoples to annoy and spam. Chat is closable, as well. Unless they think up some (show no chat bubbles) thing....Yeah, I still strongly dislike that idea. But, hey, 9999 second think....Bingo!!

This needs to happen. It still needs to happen. When recently deceased, seven year old MMOs did this, on an older engine, and with NO issues? Yeah, you have no excuse, Devs. No excuse whatsoever.

Then, as suggested in this thread countless times, toggle the chat bubbles off. Problems solved and we get to keep our chat bubbles (for those who do want them.)

In other MMO's the chat that displays in the chat box is not turned off when you turn off Chat Bubbles. Why would it be any different here? No reason to not add chat bubbles to TOR.
