The problem with the online requirement isn't so much that most people have internet connections. Some people have pretty horrible internet connections. Some folks live in the boondocks or other areas where net connections are spotty.

Its fine to feel smug and say 'too bad', but there is a difference between requiring an online activation (even if its required whenever you start the game), and requiring a consistent and decent internet connection for a smooth play experience. Especially for a game like Diablo...

10 million WoW players plus millions and millions of gamers around the world playing other online games demonstrate that their Internet connections are fine for persistent online gaming. If their connections can handle situations with dozens of people in raid settings and has for the last 10+ years, it can handle 4 users playing coop in D3. The argument for unreliable Internet stopped being a concern years ago.
