that is some serious BULL. a feat of strength is one thing, but awarding people with a sigil based upon random draw where (probably) millions of people never got in? i was opted in, i entered a ton of contests, and never got in. thats LLAAMMEE!
should be the opposite. people who did the open beta should be awarded something for participating, because there was no limit who could play. it wasnt based on some rinky dink 'if your lucky' system
As someone who was in the beta, I'm really surprised that they did this. A feat of strength I can understand, side it's nothing really special. It just shows you had the beta. But a sigil is something visual that everyone can see. It should be something you earn, that everyone has access to, or were able to have access to.
Getting something by random chance doesn't sit well with me. It should be everyone who wanted the beta, or some other criteria that shows you as a dedicated fan.
Wow, i was in the beta, and i greatly oppose this. It's actually completely fucking terrible/dumb. For one, it's based on complete LUCK, so you're just screwing people out of this who weren't as lucky. Wasn't getting into the beta and playing it reward enough? Sure, in theory, they're "testers", and as such they could be rewarded for "working" for Blizzard to test the game. But let's face it, it's a game, people were PLAYING this game, people were LUCKY to get into this beta, the fact that i got into the beta was lucky enough, there's really no need to get anything post-release that others can't get.
achivements given for participating is shit. Call it a feat of strength but this is kinda stupid (I had beta acces) and when I played wow I only really cared for server first achivmemts so all this really does is maybe annoy a few people they couldn't get it and the people in beta prob didn't care
