Can't buy SWTor from Origin - Sold out in my country, what to do?

So the game is sold out in stores in my country, and Origin gives me the following message:

"The following products are restricted and cannot be added to your basket:

STAR WARS™: The Old Republic™ Standard Edition"

I assume that this is because I live in the "red zone" as it did when pre-orders were available.

So I was wondering, would it be possible for me to get a Swedish friend of mine to buy the game for my account (someone I trust), and would it be allowed/would it work?

I already have one physical copy of the game so all I need the digital copy for is for another account I plan to give to a special someone. I can install it with my CDs, so I don't need to download it.

be glad, the game is bad, dont waste your money. Look at my join date, 2 years I supported this game. if you want a bad single player rpg with a very boxed in world where mobs are cut and pasted into place, dont move, dont path, wont even attacked you unless you atk them first and have painted on backgrounds then by all means by it. Oh the single player shooter has pretty much 3 commands and is terrible. pvp is bland as the game combat mechanics don't flow well and cc is way out of balance. The final world for pvp illum is nothing like world objective pvp, the areas are simply traded with no fighting as you earn nothing for fighting, its simply a staging area to stack a buff then jump into the same 3 rinse repeat warzones to gear grind. Save your self the money.

Loved it in the beta and still want to give it a try though. But I still appreciate your reply even if it isn't what I wanted to hear.

Nice to see somebody that has no idea what they are talking about posting info that they read from other folks that have no idea what they are talking about. All of your claims are 99.9% wrong. Research harder instead of reading and re-typing the latest troll complaints from page 1 of the general forums.

To the OP, it will work fine. go4it

Or get a job. There has never been a game at launch with the level of content, depth, and polish of this game. It's definately worth a look.

I tried PVP and liked it because I was ussually in the top 3 - I can see how it would suck if you failed at it I suppose. I even got MVP once and was like, "hey, I deserve this"

The game is fine - buy more
