The resurgence of D2 popularity was not due to 50-100 people botting and pvping each other continuously for 15 years.
This just shows your bias. USEAST NONLADDER maybe have 50-100 people dueling on D2legacy today
. That's today, after D2r is available.
The d2 pvp scene in 2003-2016 on eur/east/west was so much bigger than you seem to grasp. Im not saying >51% of d2s player base was active duellers, but a great deal of players who stuck around for over 2-3 weeks or played every second ladder reset for a week or two DID atleast somewhat duell. maybe 1% took it as serious as the guys in Legit Dueling of today. but that 1% is still a huge number of players in peak d2 day.

You don't need to write anything out you're talking from anecdotal personal opinion while I am speaking from objective facts. D2's trends on google, youtube, social media, etc have all been related to plugy, grails, speedruns, and other pvm aspects. The PVP community is very hardcore, but it's very small and miniscule in the grand scheme of the game. The real truth is D2 got a remake because they don't want the IP to sit cold while D4 and Immortal get infinitely delayed cause D3 is already dead.
It's not as black or white as you make it to be. How is it that my perspective (pvper, long time bnet player) means im raising "anecdotal evidence and opinions", while you, so obviously coming from the opposite community, (speedrunner/mrllamasc/plugy singleplayer grail farmer) speak "objective facts"?
