THE TOWER MUST BE BIGGER!

Ok, so my first impression of The Tower is, meh. Think about what Bungie has given us about this game so far. It's going to be massive right? An epic sci fi adventure for the ages, well I think one of the most important things that doesn't truly reflect that is the guardians home base, The Tower. It just feels to small in size and scope. One of my favorite home bases in all videos was the Citadel from Mass Effect. You could truly feel and breath in the epicness of that space station. That's what I think the Tower needs to more closely reflect; a home base where we would be able to explore just as much as we can when we land on a new planet. Consider it Bungie. AND YES EVERYONE I AM AWARE THIS IS A BETA, AND THAT THERE ARE STILL OTHER AREAS THAT ARE CURRENTLY NOT OPEN. I AM SIMPLY REPLYING TO BUNGIE ASKING FOR FEEDBACK.

  • It'll probably be bigger, a shooting range would be really nice, but as much as it would be great, I dont know if they'll be able to gambling games of any kind, they may lose their T rating for it.

    The tower is this size so that its easy to get around and get the tasks needed done quickly. This is from the IGN video with Bungie about the tower and it makes absolute sense. I don't want to be walking around for ages looking for NPC's to hand in missions or to go to the vault. Get in, get out.

    • I equated the Tower to the Jedi academy from KOTOR. But it sure is smaller than I expected. I wondered what would be behind the big doors up front when the game released, only to find out its where the Iron Banner is. But that was it. Nothing else back there. It's a good size when you have to constantly criss-cross and drop items off from missions. >Bounty >Now go to Cryptarch >Now Gunsmith >Buy a new ship >Check Vanguard Armory >Pull hair out from all the running

      I half agree with you. It doesn't quit feel like a "home". I think they should have a Cantina bar type location (Yes, similar to A New Hope), with dancers, music, and friendly games guardians could play together to bet different types of currency. I would like to hope guardians have the same "basic needs" as most men and women do.

      • My problem isn't so much with the tower but the city below it makes the last stand of our civilization look reeeeeeaaaaally small. But maybe after seeing more of the story well get the full scope of the city. And do we know yet where on the map it is (just curious)?

        • I agree. The Tower needs to be significantly bigger and the player limit needs to be raised from 16 to around 35. And something else I thought would be cool is if the Last city was explorable.

        • 100% sure the tower will be bigger and also everything else like different areas other than Russia on earth and all other planets! They put 500 mil into this game their must be tons and tons of things for us to do.

        • I'm sure the tower will be bigger. When you look at the map there seem to be a few greyed out area, plus I'm pretty sure there's supposed to be two more factions, I've only found tower representatives for three of the five factions Bungie has talked about in the past.

          • Am I missing something the Tower is huge. It's just that we only have access to a small part in the BETA. You can even get glimpses of locked areas if you explore for a bit. I think we will be pleasantly surprised at launch.

            I agree they should make it epic, it would go a long way to improve the overall FEEL of the game. I want to feel like I get lost in space every time I play this game, like it takes you away. They should add more things to it too, maybe more NPCs that change and randomly appear at different times like different merchants coming from foreign lands on their ships with strange information or unique items, more lore that changes as you progress, etc. Things to make it feel more [i]rich.[/i]

          • Agreed I was looking forward to actually having a city part of the "last city on earth" not just 3 separate wings other than a tiny home base though I think the game is incredible

          • Ahhh the Citadel. Bungie should add the equivalent of an Avina Terminal, to explain the functions of everything at the tower, not some quiet bit with a map.

          • Like someone said previously, some of the doors in the tower have yet to be opened, for example there is a huge circular door near the voice of the traveler

          • I am a little concerned that promises were made that "if you can see it, you can reach it" in this game. At least with the beta (maybe because areas are not released or done yet) it seems that there ARE borders but just like the "no loading screens" (which is just replaced by long flight screens) we are being misled by areas bordered by deep waters, long drops, and walls. This does not seem like a free roaming world as promised. For those who will say "do you know how hard it would be to actually make a world where you can go ANYWHERE, no platform would handle the rendering..." HEY! I say HEY!!! Then the devs need to watch what they say and not hype us up for fudged work! I love the game so far, even if it only goes to level 8, but if I am told I can go anywhere I can see, I had better not have an impassable body of water separating me and a distant shore, I had better have a way to cross that damn water and get to the areas I can see!

            • there are parts of the city that haven't been opened and there's good proof of that by all the big sealed doors and the fact that the iron banner's npc is behind one that was opened.

            • I heard of ideas like shooting ranges and playing cards at bars and drinking against them and other quick things to do at the tower in the forums which i hope they add along with a huge tower!

              I think you're forgetting once again this is not an MMO, but a shared-world shooter. People are building grandiose expectations when truly the ground-breaking features are the adaptation of an FPS to an RPG format. As someone with some familiarity as to the effort each area takes to both visualize, create, and program, I can appreciate the Tower as is. Would additional extras be cool? Yes, but BUNGiE first and foremost is focusing on the core values of Destiny's Desing: Namely good encounters and worthwhile loot. Anything else is secondary.

                • Agreed. You fly in over a huge city that you are fighting to protect, hopefully the Guardian tower isn't the only piece you get to explore. That would make no sense.

                • I agree. The Destiny tower feels like the City in Borderlands 2. Lots of stuff going on in a minor scale, nothing EPIC, as the game is portrayed to be. I do hope that the full release improves the looks and layout of the Tower.

                • I noticed that there are a few doors that look like they lead to another place. There is one in the main area to the right of the Bounty bot and there are these curtain looking doors. It looks like they are blocking something off exclusive to the full game.
