Angry What happened to my save files?

Aren't these save files supposedly stored on the EA servers for us to download? I got a new computer, installed the game, connected to EA Online, try to load a previous save, try to change character only to see that I have no save files... :|

Your save files aren't stored online. If you go to:
Documents / Bioware / Characters / Saves. They would be all in there.

I'm pretty sure the game uploads your save files to your EA account, acting like STEAM's Cloud system, saving information so you can pick up where you left off if you're on a different computer. That's one of the perks of having an EA account and connecting to it.

Nope, the only game I'm aware of that has that "feature" (at least from EA) is C&C4.

Are you sure? I'm pretty sure I downloaded an old save file from my account a while back.

DA:O does not upload any save files to EA/BioWare's servers.

It does upload some character profile information to be displayed on the social site, as well as screenshots and achievements. But your actual save games are stored locally.
