    Eh, not really.

    I would rather not see LotRO get taken down prematurely because of stupidity involving XP and Vista. I've invested far too much time into this game to have it end THAT way.

    Going by https://www.gamedev.net/forums/topic/662452-steam-takes-30/ it's probably closer to 30% (could be negotiated down, though).

    Problem is there's an NDA, so best we can do is speculate =/

    Steam download for the initial client is SIGNIFICANTLY faster than pulling it from SSG.

    Patching is the same, though, as both clients still need to patch after being downloaded.

    What I do is irrelevant to this argument.

    The fact is, it is possible for someone to use Steam to download LotRO, and then shaft Valve. That fact alone disproves what you were saying about Steam.
