A lot of the game does not actually take place online is the thing and why there are a lot of people upset.
Once you get to your city there is no need for online activity for 20-30 minutes and is self contained (mostly). The online piece is there for save games but to also allow regions. Different players can manage different regions and then share resources like I can send my garbage trucks to collect your garbage if you like or my residents might visit your casinos. There are also join projects like the Space Center which multiple players can contribute to.
When I look at this game there is absolutely nothing in it that I think requires a server and what does seems to be minimal. I wouldn't mind the online piece if it was optional but its not so I mind.
I'll be surprised if an official patch does actually come which removes online unless its basically already written. I suspect that it just doesn't make financial sense for them to invest resources in it.
