The game doesn't "have" single player, you can play the game solo but people can join you anytime.

And really because the entire game is run like an MMO, you can pirate the client all day it won't do you any good.

A few things that you don't seem to understand with Diablo 3.
  • It doesn't have a single player feature, while you can play alone in a game, it is fully intended to be a co-operative game.
  • It isn't to prevent pirating of the game as so much as it is a way to prevent hacking. Blizzard is aware that hacking destroyed Diablo and Diablo 2 and they want to prevent that from happening.
  • The Real Money Auction House is fully intended as a form for Blizzard to continually generate revenue off the game. If the game were rampant with hacking this wouldn't be feasible. .
  • The only assets kept client side are visual assets, everything else is done server side, again to prevent hacking, and streamed to the client. This of course requires a constant connection to perform.

What it boils down to is that Blizzard has spent a very significant amount of time on the development of Diablo 3. One of the biggest things the fan base asked for was for them to prevent hacking, and to monitor and stop any potential hacks. One of the most effective ways of doing this is to have everything server side, streaming assets to the client, thus requiring a constant connection. If you want a single player hack n slash with offline mode, be sure to grab TorchLight II. It will have that feature and be a great game as well.

I develop video games, I'm fully aware of the reasons behind their actions. While it has multiplayer it isn't meant to only be multiplayer. Hacking a single player game matters not. Real money auction houses aren't affected by single player. And finally, the server containing the logic for large parts of the game was not necessary for single player. I'm skeptical about that statement anyhow, as that means an entire server world instance will need to be run by Blizzard for every single player game running, additionally that now means you experience lag in single player mode, which would just be idiotic.
