So earlier this afternoon/evening, I did a clean install of Windows 7. And just finished downloading/installing Steam and Civ5. However, when I go to load my game, its not there. Am I missing something in my tired state right now or shouldn't it have been saved to the cloud or something lol? I don't know just pretty bummed right now if its lost cause my current game (was) going amazing. Anyway to get it back? Or just start over? Also does this mean my achievement progress is going to be reset?

Thanks!

If you did a complete reinstall of windows and you didn't have a cloud save, then it's gone and nothing you can do (outside of spending big bucks on professional file retrieval) is going to bring it back.

In Civ 5, you have to save to the cloud manually.
