The Silent World or why we need chat bubbles

In here there is a very interesting thread about how to implement Chat Bubbles in Darkfall. The OP explains very well how the system would work so I'd like to focus on why we need them. Chat Bubbles, in any of its forms, be it with bubble or just the text, improves inmersion terribly. You don't need to check your ultiple chat tabs to know if your group leader said regroup or attack or nothing at all. Also, finally we would be able to read the funny things mobs say to you when you kill them, who watches the Monster Tab? In my opinion Chat Bubbles expands the sandbox, it's not a very big expansion or tool but it is an improvement and we would all enjoy it if properly coded. I'd love to see this happen in the coming GUI revamp but I'm not very hopeful. We'll see.
Best Taunt Ever!
