Did anyone outside of the US win anything this time around?

They had no problems posting information where the buyers were from so I don't see why it should be a problem posting the country of the winners :)
If it's US only then this is def. my final grab bag : )

You should probably make it your last anyway just to make sure you get your point across. I'm sure that the random number generator that they use has visibility into where the person assigned to the number is from and throws out those who aren't from US when their number comes up.
Must be the beginning of Skynet right here on Massdrop. Soon there will be Massdrop Arnold-Schwarzenegger-bots exterminating everyone outside US. Their number generator is alive and thinking for itself and they don't even know it.
That, or this is simple probability with ~74% of purchasers being from US meaning they are more likely to be the ones getting the prizes. In this grab bag I'd expect 1-2 non-US persons to win one of the prizes since they have a 1 in 4 chance and there were 8 prizes. I'm sure if you looked at the stats on other grab bags and actually thought about what they mean you could draw similar conclusions too.
Would you prefer that they weight the non-US status of an individual to make it more likely for them to win? If that happened US persons would not be as interested in the grab bag and would not buy. That would leave this grab bag with 1/4 the sales and 1 of the prizes up for grabs. Logic sucks doesn't it?

No, all I want to see as I asked in my first post is a list of winners by country since they already posted the list for buyers in participating countrys. The reason that 99.9% of the buyers joined the drop is for the bonus prizes so if you're not able to win it outside the US it makes this drop almost completely worthless. You get my point?
