Hmmm, I mean I got it the beta invite.... like a few days before that weekend thing. Wonder if I still count for it. WELL we will find out in less then 24 hours XD

*excited*
Not our fault that some people were too lazy to get into the beta before it was too late.
We who did our part in testing and bug reporting deserve some recognition, so !@#$ you whiny and entitled little crybabies.

You make no sense. How is not getting picked by Blizzard considered as laziness? You think applying for beta automatically grants you access? I think you are delusional.

It sucks, and we got lucky, but please don't begrudge us the pat on the back we got for work well done.

How is being randomly(?) picked is work well done or any kind of work at all?

I don't feel happy for the beta testers nor sad for the non beta testers. It's not like this grants you anything special other than a recognition that you were in Closed Beta.

It's simply recognition for being a lucky chosen. If you have it, you have it. If you don't, you don't.

Ohh a feat of strength that has no effect on gameplay.. who cares. Everybody who is crying about this needs a reality check.. priorities people.. priorities.

Let me guess: you got the FoS and now actively telling everyone that you don't care and neither should anyone else. Just like everybody who got the FoS.

It's not like this grants you anything special other than a recognition that you were in Closed Beta.

Recognition is special. It's what most people strive to get in their lives. It's in human nature.

I'm pretty sure my sentence acknowledged the special nature of recognition. That's why it was " Other than". But it doesn't affect your gameplay at all. You don't get a title that you can wear around and show off? It's something that shows up in your own personal achievements page.

Also my final statement still stands.. If you have it, you have it. If you don't, you don't. Not " Good for you " or "Aw sucks for you". It's just one of those things man.

No problem.

(quoting a post with no added message is the same thing as saying "I agree with this post")

Feats of Strength will always be achievements not worth points but something that was rather rare/hard to get/only a limited time thing. My wow account has a lot of old Feats due to the account being active since the very beginning. Do I think its a good move... well. The Feat it self is kind of cool the emblem will probably be an issue with some people but its that way a lot of the time. Hopefully the game play will allow people to forget about it and move on.

I'm sorry, but quoting a post delivers more results than a simple thumbs-up that has zero effect unless several other people thumbs up the same posts as I do.

Meh. I had the beta its cool to get an achievement I guess. But imo the real FOS was actually being able to play.
No one will remember this after two days time, well maybe 2 or 3 people will, but no one likes them anyway so who cares.
I would have participated if you let me.

=(


Same here. I spent 48 hours playing d3 during the open beta weekend
Congrats to everyone who gave Blizzard enough money to be deemed worthy of beta participation.

Funny how open beta testers aren't worth any acknowledgement for their participation in stress testing the game for free.

I'll be playing Diablo III, and Heart of the Swarm, but I'm really starting to despise this company.

It's one thing to hand out beta keys based on how much revenue a player has generated for you, it's a wholly different thing to rub it in people's faces when their hundreds of WoW dollars weren't enough to make the cut.

I guess people should be happy now? I didn't get into D3 beta, oh well. Moving on.

I'm not understanding why people are upset about this? There are many Feats of Strength that I'll never be able to have, and one in particular that I couldn't get because I couldn't be in WoW the night the event was going on. It does not bother me at all that other people have them because it doesn't have any impact on me in any fashion.
