Not so much anymore , Bioware used to be a Canadian company and that thing isn't even open to canadians .

This is pretty underwhelming, definitely not worth a countdown heh.

I can't think of any contest that was/is international, off hand. You run into MASSIVE legal problems when you try to do that.

I've participated in international contests on a few occasions and very often across the americas at very least . I'm sure there are some legal matters to take care of in some specific areas (Hence why NY, Florida and such are excluded as well) but for the most part it isn't the case.

…Besides, Bioware has offices all over canada and has held contest in Canada and abroad before, therefor they should know what is required to make it happen. I'm guessing this is mainly EA's doing. (The contest and the lack of will to pay attention to other markets)

When I left Canada contests used to require at least 30% of proceeds go to some charity and had to be registered. They also required some sort of skill testing question. It seems to be much easier now with their half billion dollar casinos opening up - mostly to keep Canadians from throwing their money down holes in the US.
