They won't give us chat bubbles anytime soon. Reason ? Performance issues.

That's right, you've read it correctly.

Chat bubbles reduce framerate drastically. The engine is that terrible.

Screw you fireworks. Give me AMD Crossfire support.

Here for part of beta and then pre-launch...
Here through forced server moves, countless bugs (most of which still exist) daily crashes (no solution given for this issue)...i could go on, but why bother...
When I logged in and saw the fireworks announcement all I could do was sigh and say "REALLY?!"
Don't get me wrong, I love this game or I wouldn't still be here. But this so called reward felt more like an insult to me. The faithful that have been here since pre-launch and before....surely we are worth more than fireworks that are going to cause crashes and horrific lag.

Give us speeders, titles, color crystals....but fireworks?!!?!! REALLY!???

I know they are free and we really shouldn't complain, I can't but feel thoroughly underwhelmed.

wow... fireworks.

That must have taken some serious thought.... How about a real reward for those of us that have stuck around and paid our subs for 1 year despite there being better games on the market?

This is a terrible idea. But whatever, I don't "expect" or "deserve" something decent for playing since the start, so I don't really care.

Gonna be interesting to see all the graphics-lag complaints hit the forums though...

Seriously though, you want to REWARD players? Give us a Campain Mainhand token for each char we have at lvl 50.

I f we had chat bubbles and could talk to other players maybe something like this would be fun. As it stands, there is no community and zero player interaction. This is still a single player game with the possibility of an mmo.

*** was the idea behind the face emotes? YOU NEVER SEE ANOTHER PLAYER UP CLOSE ENOUGH TO USE THEM! Why? Because the only way to talk to another player is a little box wich no one looks at and shouts across the entire planet.

If I am standing next to someone and ask them a question, or vice versa, what is the chance they or I will even see it? None. Bad, bad, bad design.

Chat bubbles will reduce performance?!?!?! Really?! If that is even remotely true then this game is doomed.

To come out with a game, in this day and age, with the Star Wars IP, and not be able to include the most basic functions is just *insert any term you like*.

Why would the word "what" turn into ***?
