Private servers allowed to get rid of such things like lvl-ing up for months or farming up items, as well as they allowed for much better anti-cheat protection, various gameplay and mechanics improvements (say, when you die your body is located in front of stash, you can see your resistances/fcr/ias/fbr/fhr and such on stats board and much more)
Noone serious played on Bnet past Autumn 2008 and shit Blizzard done back then (bans for d2loader - software which they had previously stated they are ok with people using it)
