I only play single player now. I go through D2 spurts and don't play constantly anymore, so I keep having my accounts pop because I forget to log them in within the certain amount of time. A month can go by quick >.<
Plus, I always have the worst luck playing on b.net. Games dropped, I get locked out for 30 mins for no apparent reason and people always bitch at me for summoning skellies anyways, so I figured I would just take it offline and have my fun. The /players 8 command gives me the benefit of extra exp, without the drawbacks of online.
Also, I never see all the realms up on the list anymore. It's like the game can only detect one realm at a time anymore, lol. Like right now (just checked) only US East is available. Hitting the change realm button only gives me a list with US East in it. Weird.
