That would not work, first of all i think they cannot track it (anymore) who really participated in CB vs those who got invited but never really played it.
And second of all, when you are grouped with 3 other ppl... and upon finding a bug, only one player will write a report.
Wich did happen once for me, let's assume for the sake of the argument that was the only bug i ever came across and someone else in the party reported it.
Why shouldn't i receive it ?
Yes now translate that for people who didn't get into the closed beta.

let's assume for the sake of the argument that i was never invited to the closed beta because my random number was never generated. Why shouldn't I receive the unique sigil and fos?
It isn't the same, but i'll play along.
Because you didn't play in CB, you didn't invest time to help make the product better.
I'm not saying that you would not had put effort into it if u were picked, just that u did not do it, for w/e reason.
That aside, i dont feel 'special' or more l33t by receiving that FoS.
I just really think it's cool and nice from Blizzard to recognize that the product that will be released in a few days, would had been much inferior if it wasnt for CB.
And since u were in CB, you should know that. I can think of two exploits wich would had absolutely DESTROYED the RMAH and crafting.
At the time of the reports, it didn't seem that Blizz was aware of that, but maybe they did from their internal testing, what i do know is that it got patched shortly after it.
Draw your own conclusions.
Who knows, if it was a completely different pool of CB testers it might have been even better, or worse.
The only thing that is certain is the current result, and Blizzard gave a small token of gratitude for all the time and effort spent.
Wich does not affect others. It rewards 0 ap, and will not be shown as a "locked achievement" since it only is shown if u have it.
Ps: this belonged in the other thread that got deleted while i was writing this, so i though i might aswell just post it here.
