Maybe my eyes were glossed over from all the eye candy and class articles D3 released during that time
September, 2011. I won't argue if they were very effective or not, since it may have been against their interest to spread the word.

Took me quite awhile to even accept Steam's policy and it's not even close to having this much of a draconian choke hold.
I haven't bought a single game on Steam. My first experience with it was when I was trying out a demo of some game. In order to play it, they forced me to have an internet connection, create an account, log in, and finally play the damn demo. By that time, I wasn't interested in playing the demo anymore. What I really wanted to know was if there was a version of that game without Steam. Sadly it was a Steam exclusive, and my interest for that game disappeared immediately.

I can't stand account-based and/or online authentication DRM on singleplayer games. What's worse, it's like a disease spreading throughout the whole industry.
