    However I agree that laws aren't an easy playground in such a contest even thou the common-wealth share in general the same law principals with the US (common law). While the EU in general has the legal system of the civil law which differs in certain aspects. But that would have most likely easily allowed UK and Australian residents to participate. Further as the jurisdiction for this would be in the US, the common law would even ease it, as in cases where the parties disagree on what the law is, a common law court only has to look on past precedential decisions of relevant courts.

    So it is actually maybe not the contest itself but the prize, as it would be probably costly to send a $4000 PC to the other end of the world? Dunno the exact reasoning, but it is sad for all the non US residents that can't participate.
    It's not ONE law, but so many one can count them all. They all differ from Country to Country. What may be legal for you, it very well could be illegal for your neighboring Country. For some countries, it is illegal for a citizen to be judicated under another countries laws/contracts or participate in a foreign counties contests.

    To research all that to be legal world wide would be a cost so high as to make holding the contest in the first place foolish. Turbine has done what any company would, found the best way to allow the most people to participate.

    If people would research local laws that cannot join in on the contest they would see how 'discriminated' they are by state government and not by Turbine following those laws that your governing officials put in place.

    Turbine could have gone about this in other ways, but they chose, once again, a path that leaves out any but their US customers. This would be fine (as in, their choice and my choice whether I'd put up with it), but they did claim that they were going more global back when F2P launched.

    That was obviously not the case. So can we get a statement from Turbine now that they didn't really mean it and only do things for their US customers while the rest of us can just pay and go away?

    Turbine is handicapped by very strict laws regarding prize giveaways and contests which many jurisdictions consider to be a form of gambling. Is it fair? No. But free stuff ALWAYS comes with a catch.

    Interestingly enough other firms seem to be able to do it.

    But not Turbine, though they claimed to be going "global".
