While I won't deny that that sucks, the alpha accounts were never supposed to transfer statistically, they were just made usable initially because they were having issues migrating the real user names and wanted to give people an opportunity to at least play the game until they found a way to migrate the real accounts. Even though I had some wins on my alpha account once they started manually setting up the real names I made sure to do so because I wanted the rest of my play during the closed beta to count for something. I'm pretty sure both in the news and on the forum Lupos asked repeatedly for people to email him their user names to be migrated so its not like you weren't given any sort of heads up.
If its any consolation, having your experience transfer really isn't that big of a deal anyway, if anything starting with a low level again might give you an advantage as your more likely to be paired up with lower level players and players are more likely to not take you seriously believing you to be inexperienced. I believe its called Twinking in other games. The only thing you really missed out on with the 1k FM, which I admit sucks but it would be a real pain for them to have to go back and check which alpha account participated and which real account account it linked too. And then when would they even go about doing it, what if there are people who used an alpha account but are busy and don't get their real account set up until this weekend, do they miss out on the FM?
