Wow. They make it seem like the only reason to have a constant connection is solely for DRM. Obviously, they haven't played the game.
 
DRM is just a small bonus that adds very little traffic to the games communication. The much larger reason for the constant connection is the multi-city play with people all over the world working on common goals, a.k.a: Great Works. Having multiple people playing the same game means you also need cloud saves to protect the integrity of the game so people just don't hex-edit their way to success.
