Ok this is the first ever pay to play mmo I've done but all the other MMO's I played have one thing in common, Channels. I mean is everyone just going to play on one channel in a server? Or are they going to make channels for each server by the time the game comes out?

If by channels you mean having a choice of which 'instance' of the server you want to play on. IE:

Figaro server >
- Play on Figaro 1
- Play on Figaro 2
- Play on Figaro 3

Highly unlikely with SE. You'll be stuck with the master server you picked, no matter how high or low the population wavers. Someday they might let you pay to get relocated, but in FFXI that took like 4+ years to happen.

I'm unfamiliar with the term, but there are various modes of conversation like say and shout. Plus linkshells allow for a select group to chat without anyone else seeing it. I would like to see them add a linkshell tab to the log options. Currently, I miss out on a lot of conversation when too much is happening around me, but don't want to filter that stuff out just yet either.

If this is the proper usage, I was way off in my understanding of the term. Is channels a WoW thing?
