The point remains, though, that none of this should be necessary when playing a single player offline game. But it is. You cannot guarantee connectivity, more so in some parts of the world. I still can't believe people have bought in to this kind of DRM, first with Ubisoft and now Blizzard. The counter argument seems to be "well, I live in country/region X, where I always have a connection, so I'm fine" or "I can do something else while the network is down" etc The issues around the reasonable expectation that you shoudl always be able to use a product which you have purchased (at no reduced cost) seems to be irrelevant. They're pushing, and if people don't push back you'll find your rights as a consumer being eroded even further as times goes by.
