Closed Beta Players - "One of the Chosen" Feat of Strength
It looks like people who were invited into the closed beta will be getting a feat of strength along with a unique sigil after logging in for the first time.

In celebration of a successful beta test, all players who were invited to participate in the Diablo III closed beta will receive the commemorative Feat of Strength, "One of the Chosen." For eligible players, this feat will appear automatically in the Feat of Strength list after logging in for the first time as well as unlock a unique sigil that can be used on character banners.

In order to be eligible for "One of the Chosen," you must have had a Diablo III closed beta license attached to your account (it isn't necessary to have downloaded or logged into the beta itself). Please note that players who participated only in the Open Beta Weekend, but were not invited to the closed beta, will not receive this Feat of Strength.

    lame....I think you should have needed to have obtained Betamax or above in order to get the achievement.
    Someone who was randomly selected but didn't participate gets the reward?

    What's next....the banner for "purchasing the game" (although I guess that's the one way to get a banner anyway).

    I just want the world to know, that i have a sandy, sandy, sandy, sandy vagina. And that i am outraged that i wont get this perfectly meaningless footnote attached to my account. So that i may sit in public chat channels, hoping my profile will be inspected, and have others stare jealously at an achievement called "One of the Chosen" and recognize me for the very special and cool person that i am. Thanks blizzard, you have ruined my life. I no longer see a point in living.

    What irritates me most is that probably 90% of the beta keys went to americans.

    i feel sad for the asians who dident even have a beta at all, heard korea had on for like a week or something.

    but this is retarded, i dont mind first-serve-first-get type achivements, or purly skill based top pvp and beat x mode before y time. cos i know if i tried hard enought i could have gotten it.

    But getting something by pure random chance. that is not even equal across the player base in the whole world is just retarded.

    This is actually really terrible of them to do, I'd understand it if they had given it to anyone with betamaxed or overachiever, but anyone that had received the invite?

    Its really a terrible PR move on Blizzard's side with anyone who had thought of this as a good idea is an idiot. Why? You already had granted those people with beta address and in itself that was a win, now giving an achievement to them as a FoS is just riddiculous, beyond anything.

    They said quite a while ago that nothing, including achievements would carry over. All they are doing here is checking what BNet accounts got flagged.

    I was in CB and I appreciate the feat but I can sympathize to those who won't get the exclusive sigil. Feats are largely meaningless and require digging for you to notice them but sigils are right there on your banner for every game. I guess I might try and justify that Diablo is mostly luck and I got the sigil for being One of the Chosen to be lucky :)

    awesomesauce ! :D

    i will brag to my achievement-whoring friends with this. and they will cry !

    ...but, but i wanted an achievement i didnt have to do anything for too :
  • #14 Thaegrin
    That's kinda cool, but yea getting Betamaxed should have been the way to obtain the feat but cool nonetheless.
  • #16 Feabreg
    This is ridiculous... They should give this sigil to everyone who played the beta... even if only on the open weekend!

    I bet that I and a lot of people have achieved and helped a lot more in that weekend that a lot of the other people with access to the closed beta!

    Absolute horseshit :(

    Lol way to piss in the wounds of everyone that never got in the beta. Cant wait to got my FoS though!
  • #20 Maerlimi
    I got beta. Woot.
    But for those who didn't get beta: way to spit on your face again, fellows.
