Yeah bad bad news
[HUKD Deal Editor]#2
I'm confused (more so because there is more than 50 words :() but does this affect the EU (UK) region?

One of the developers of Euro Truck Simulator 2, Tomáš Duda, tweeted about a region lock affecting Russia and members of the CIS (Ukraine, Belarus, etc.) — and later, he said that similar blocks were in place for Southeast Asia and South America.

We can trade (the uk) to anywhere in the world but they have pretty much closed every loop hole for cheaper countrys to trade there games our ways.

Ah that makes sense, thanks for the explanation pal :)

I thought it was always region locked and that you could get banned from doing it?

Saw this earlier and was quite disappointed when I read it. Although Russia, South America and South East Asia are the regions that have been locked, I am hopeful there will be a few other regions with cheap prices still, but even then it will be more difficult to find good traders now.
After Dispenser.tf finding a way around the 30 day lock, I don't know how they will implement this new change. I don't know which bots I can and cannot buy games off (the red highlighted games) as there is no mention of which region they are in.
Gifts bought before this change can still be traded cross region which is good but I can't find anywhere/anyone that has the games I want without them having to buy off the marketplace.

Bad bad bad news :(

seems like whenever consumers win, the companies find ways to stop it, and of course this will make PC games more expensive as publishers get greedy, probably means piracy will increase as well

a lot of key sellers went out of business instantly
