Its not about stopping people from having fun, its about keeping your expectations reasonable. Work arounds and attempts for organized play are perfectly fine, but expecting the games development to be based around those attempts, and to be angry about changes like this that ruin player-made work arounds is simply unreasonable. The reason why simply waiting to play organized play is a reasonable option is because we already know for a fact the options to do so will be coming, at least in the form of custom serversSimple fix, just stop playing the game!
SP was in a pretty bad state, too. Maybe they should have disabled that until it was more polished? I mean, with all the diplomatic and economy problems--not to mention absent features--it's clearly not fit for any reasonable play, so people should just stop playing it for now.
Sarcasm aside, this is an unreasonable expectation. You are telling people to take a hike for something that isn't their fault, while trying to impose your personal standards on them. Warband competitive play started at a time when updates were being pushed out weekly (sometimes faster, for hotfixes) which were changing the game in no small way. It created inconsistency, sure, so competitive results weren't exactly valid or very meaningful, but it was fun regardless. You can't sit here and tell me in good faith that these people should stop trying to have fun in a video game because you don't think you'd have fun playing how they do.
To use your example of single player, outside the sarcasm, I don't think they should disable it but I do think players who aren't okay with the current state of Singleplayer to stop playing until its in a more complete state, because early access is going to have issues, if you agree to play it, you have to agree that youl be facing issues and the process of fixing them, a process you may not always agree with.
I completely understand people paid money for this test, and I'm not going to say I agree with the state of the game, SP or MP, considering the time of development and cost to get into EA, but that is the reality of the games current state. I'm not saying people have to stop playing MP in a organized way, nobody is forcing you, I just think its a fruitless attempt to try to get the devs to make changes that cater to the needs of organized play before they've implemented the systems to do so. Taleworlds seems to have their vision on what they want to do, but god do I wish we could get a proper roadmap or something
