I think, the main issue is that once again offline mode didn't work consistently across the broader set of Steam users. Rare connection issues are in some cases expected, and Valve did fix the issue reasonably quickly. However, offline mode should always work.

The other digital store/DRM shops like Origin, UPlay, Impulse (Now Gamestop) etc are leagues ahead of Steam in this regard. Offline mode always works. If you start the utility and you can't make the connection to the server, you always have the chance to go to offline mode (immediately). With Steam it may or may not happen, even if you have made the changes in Steam configuration to support offline mode.
