F1 is a International sport, not region locked sport WTF!!
This region lock is BS. Here in Australia not may people play F1 so the life is short

Setting steam download to another region no longer works. I know the game is new but has anyone come up with a workaround?

You say stick to the topic, then rant off-topic. 0.0 Anyway what do you mean by region-locking? I'm in NZ and will unlock the game at noon tomorrow local judging by the store page countdown. What issue does Australia have?

Region locked means you can only play multiplay in your own region and not play against others in other regions like Europe

Games like F1 2012 and Grid 2 are also region locked, but by changing steam download setting to a european country allows you to play in that region

F1 2013 is a "ROW" game, but so far I can only see other Australians online even when I change steam download to a european country

How can you see anyone online when the game isn't out yet? :P

To be fair to Codemasters, if they didn't region lock you'd just end up in a situation where people from down under were racing people from the eastern United States in the laggiest lobbies known to mankind. But having said that, in the past few days I've been racing in the laggiest servers known to mankind against people in Brazil in Grid 2 and F1 2012, so it's not totally locked to just Europe or just the Americas or whatever.

For reference it's called ROW in Europe too :)

Pre's must get it 1 day earlier because I've been playing it, anyhow think I just have to wait till the game is opened up worldwide

ROW means Rest of the world, which in the past also means region free

I guess we will all know for sure soon enough......

You're only with Australians because the game is only out in Australia.
