Blizzard chooses to reward closed beta testers with a Feat of Strength, “One of the Chosen”
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 Battle.net 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.
Thank you once again to all of our beta participants. We look forward to seeing you in Sanctuary!
As expected, the poor saps that were not l33t enough to join the closed beta are out in droves. Complaints of inequality abound. Nerds are threatening to cancel their preorders, etc.
Then, in a perfect troll, a guy named Downsy goes big:
Could this dude be related to Downey from Heroes of Newerth?
Regardless, big props to Blizzard for giving out Feats of Strength whose only purpose is to piss people off.
