One thing I did not enjoy about the alpha and beta builds was the sense of isolation and loneliness I felt. Usually I only saw 3 or for people in old Russia. Since Destiny is going to be a FPS MMO, I think it should do a better job of living up to the MMO aspect. Each instance and server should be able to have a 77 player capacity. That way I will feel like I am playing with a community and it will make public events feel like a big battle or that I am exploring Bungie's world with an army of guardians.
i noticed the same, but i'm wondering if it's due what system you were on or maybe something else. beta is different. they should have sufficient about of servers and bandwidth. load testing is what they were doing besides other things like ensuring there is not so much buggy code. i am confident we'll be fine.
