Generally there are legality issues with offering contests and such to different countries....
There's too much red tape and too many lawyers to deal with. It's nothing personal...they aren't doing it to spite non-US residents.
I am not positive if it's US law that forbids it, or some European countries....I am not up on all the laws.....
It's not just games that do it....There are other contests that are limited by residency.
BioWare (as with any other company) does not like excluding people because of residency....They just don't have a choice in the matter.....
