I agree with you on the asteroid field. It could be a fun element to snake your way through to safety on the other side of the asteroid belt. I guess they may tweak it later on. I don't know much about how the actual game will be.
It may have annoyed them in testing and so they shrunk the field range.
I am really looking forward to release.
It is the way I thought destiny would be when I bought the full version(after playing the demo that did not let you leave earth and alluded to space exploration)
