Even not playing Runescape or going to runescape sites, Ive seen runescape real-world trading on other Game forums, particularly SPUF (Steam powered users forum) with Team Fortress 2. Steam has put up a stance that RWT is shunned but not discouraged or prohibbited, Recently they even seem to encourage it by releasing a new feature allowing trading of IRL Video games with Virtual goods.
The problem I have seen is the trading of Team Fortress 2 virtual items with virtual items of other games, while this is ok for some games that are part of steam and dont care about RWT. This is a problem for RS. Ive seen dozens of threads offering RSGP for TF2 Items. While this demographic may not be large or significant, I still find it sort of frustrating that RS RWT lives on in the forums of games that have "legal" rwt.
I think a company as big as Steam and a game as big as TF2 should care more about whats happening in their game and stop the trading with games with illegal RWT. Or maybe Jagex should pursue
What do you think of this one-sided "Legal" RWT with big games such as TF2?
