Yep plenty of  RuneScape gold steam games have their launchers but from what I've seen they still handle upgrades via steam rather than through the launcher itself. Which means every week they would be pushing updates through steam in addition to via Apple, android and the present desktop client.

Ohh and valve would like you to add steam wallet as an option even in link shops. And any in RuneScape game purchases need to be locked so that a player accessing through steam can simply pay via steam. They want their cash, you can not blame them but it is full of negatives from jagex's view. You also have the update process generally, I do not understand what kind of lead time steam need with upgrades being pushed and if that would work with how frequently RS is updated. Many, many mmos have their own launcher, and steam updates update the launcher. FF14 comes to mind as a huge case. The launcher is kept by steam up to date, the launcher patches RuneScape, entirely outside of steam.

How do you understand this? Surely you must not be so delusional to believe that your armchair understanding is exceptional to Jagex, a company with hundreds of employees who would have considered the prospect of starting on Steam + already done a comprehensive cost-profit analysis.This is a company that is gaining record profits while using a dwindling player foundation (RS3). Being a company does not mean you're unexpectedly god when it comes to those choices. They did not even contemplate OSRS until gamers started petitioning and complaining about it, and that was be a success.

I guess they must not realized it was even though people were begging since the release of EoC for it. Sure, they don't necessarily know. However, as it stands, the arguments provided for launching RS3 on Steam are not and laughable even remotely legitimate. My point isn't that Jagex is all-knowing and could be relied on to make the right decisions. It's that a lot of players create radical suggestions without contemplating the picture.

RuneScape moving to monthly upgrades

Obviously the majority of the opinions will be"haven't they already done that" but lets actually have a discussion. They're officially changing the anticipation from every Monday having something to it really only being once a month. Seems like they are opting for the end of the month as a launch point for all of their updates. They have done this in the past, but its nice to know that upgrades are coming in the close of the month and then they use the month to build hype for that upgrade, sort of like how they  buy RS gold announced Desperate Measures 20 days before its release.
