That would be cool, my guess is they wont want to do that because right now we all know the game is pretty empty. That being said, currently they can play the "people are in private mode, or friends only card." You make all the cities forced pub zones and the towns are still lifeless/dead that would cause more issues than worth. We already know this games like a ghost town, making forced pub in all cities will just confirm it and it can no longer be denied! i vote +10000 on this, one of my biggest barriers to playing this game is how it doesn't feel like multi player. Too many great single player games out there with much more content/stories/better graphics for me to want to play SOTA for a single player experience.
