comment Reinstalled Starcraft 2 (new system), lost my achievements
@ahsteele: Thanks! I'll make sure I update this page if I get more information. I was wondering that maybe when SC2 was first released, it didn't sync all that data on the cloud, and that this was introduced later on (after I temporarily stopped playing)...? Has your profile and achievements gallery always been accessible on the web? I don't remember that being the case for me (but maybe I just missed it somehow).

That being said, you do raised a valid (and somewhat concerning) point. While my solution made all my achievements appear again in the game, when I log in on my BattleNet account (on the web), I still see my new, almost empty character (with which I played about 3 games vs AI --couldn't resist-- which gave me a few XP). However, I must say that I haven't played again after I solved my problem, so I hope this is just a temporary situation, and that playing it again will sync it entirely with the web. Unless it triggers some anti-cheat mechanism which would block the syncing... :-(

To be clear: I did not created a new account. I used the same email as always, with the same password, and I did not activate the game again. And like I said, my saved data were always in the same folder ("My Documents\Starcraft II" on D:), yet when I first launched the game after my first attempt to reinstall it, it asked me to create a new character like if it was the first time I played. I don't remember seeing any option to load a previous character instead of creating one, so unless I missed it (does such an option exist?), I don't think I had a choice not to create a new character.

OK I solved it (see my answer). I guess your solution works fine if the saved data has already through the "optimization" process I mention.

Thanks, but it doesn't really work. The game now shows that I finished the campaign (and I get a "resume" button), but I still doesn't have any achievement...
