I keep checking, you have been here for months saying you won't renew, and I have checked today, it has not ended even though you said it would end again and again. You know, I am no expert, but doesn't it weakens your position when you threaten to quit, say you are quitting, but never do?

also, the word subscription in your sig is spelled wrong

hey I am just pointing out a flaw in the argument of the guy I quoted and also telling him his sig is misspelled, how is that harassment?

I just thought of a possible enhancement, a configurable quick-key entry in the KeyMap preferences, for switching to group-only chat bubbles mode. So you only see Chat Bubbles from people who are in group with you, and everyone else's public chat only shows up in your chat console. This mode would automatically shut off when you leave group to make it convenient to group with someone just to have a Chat Bubble convo! When standing around Carrick Station doing nothing but GTN or crafting or socializing, this would be used ALL THE TIME!

I like the idea. While I'd be content with chat bubbles for /say chat at this point, hopefully we'll get nice, freely configurable chat bubbles options various channels (what other reason could there be that the feature has been delayed for so long, right?). Then your idea would certainly be something that'd be a great addition. In fact, adding some keybinds to turn it on/off would be cool (and more keybinds in general, too, like for unify color, hide/show headslot, various emotes, etc....but I digress).
Sadly, we don't even get any feedback from the developers what exactly they are aiming or willing to do in regards of the feature. They stated over a year ago that it was delayed because they wanted them to be "fully featured" like they wanted them to be and "get it right", yet they didn't tell us what exactly they mean by "fully featured like they want it to be" or "right". It would be nice if a developer could elaborate on that. Hopefully once it goes live (and hopefully I'll live to see that day), it'll be the greatest chat bubbles feature ever in a MMO(RP)G!

On a side note as a reminder for everyone: Please don't feed the trolls and rule breakers. Simply report them for breaking the rules using the report button and stating the reason for it to help the moderators keep the thread clean and constructive.

Starting to think this isn't going to happen...

This was in the game at one point during Beta, surely there is a workaround for the performance issues it caused by now?

It will happen bro, they wouldn't be that stupid. They'd be branded fools for life.

We're talking about the same Bioware that finds a guild cap or mission cap increase to technically challenging.

Chat bubbles are millennia away.
