TERA PC - General Discussion: Why does every portal use send me back to channel 1?

Every time I use a portal it takes twice as long because I then have to switch from channel 1 to the channel I play in. Why?

This could be relevant to your question.

it does it by default

Yes -- but why? It's counter-intuitive, wastes time, and is extremely frustrating and inconvenient. What were the designers/developers thinking when they made this the default action? Is there some advantage that I haven't discovered yet to being forced back to channel 1 every time I use a portal?

Your link is broken. Can you fix it? It redirects to a home improvement website.

I feel like one of the reasons they did this is due to people generally all hang out on channel one, so when you default back to channel one, you are among other people and maybe will interact with each other more since this is a mmorpg.

I fixed the link (in the original post).... but I have no clue how the heck it redirected you anywhere the way it was, let alone a home improvement website lol
