If they wanted to donate what was more profitable, they would've donated the membership revenue. They specifically chose Solomon's store because it sounds like a lot to someone who doesn't know Jagex's revenue breakdown, but in reality is a tiny fraction of their revenue. :P

They chose their least profitable avenue because it saves them the most money. I would be surprised if membership makes up most of the profit at this point.


How is that surprising?

Membership has been around longer than MTX and to take full benefits of MTX you need to be a member so only makes sense.

They ran a Runecoin based event in that period. Of course, it was related to only SGS and that's why donation was logically made from SGS.

If they ran a TH based charity event in the future, I would be pretty sure they would donate proceed from TH during that event period.

You will defend jagex no matter what so you can't be taken seriously.

Jagex would never donate TH in the same way they removed the well of good well, it did too well, they don't wanna hand that kinda money over to a charity, that's just silly.

We would agree that regardless of the profitability of the loot box trade, the risks associated with them are worryingly high

From Jagex's official news:

"This means we can share the total between all three of our charity partners – and what a total it is - £168,000 ($219,000)."


Jagex's donation from the Wishing Well in 2014 was only $160,000.

And since 2014, coins dropped in the Well were less and less and therefore donation would not be over $160,000.

Wasn't $219,000 from just one event this year more than the $160,000 from Wishing Well the entire year?

Lol, why would Jagex keep using well of goodwill which costs them money as players can just dump in gp or whatever trash they have in the bank? The only recoup a bit of it when players dump in bonds. Whereas using SGS, they don't need to shell out real money whenever players spend their virtual gp, since you can only spend real money on SGS items. °l||l° Modest Skillers T7 Citadel | Skilling clan recruiting players. °l||l°

"Throughout 2017 and 2018, we are focusing on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of young people by partnering our chosen charities. Together with the support of our player communities, we have raised over £300,000 ($390,000) to share between our charities. "


https://www.jagex.com/en-GB/charitable-giving

So Jagex already donated $219,000 just from one week's event in 5 months this year but $390,000 as a combined total from the last 2 years.

Quite obviously, Jagex is already well ahead in their charitable giving efforts this year. Why does donation have to come from TH or even the obsolete Goodwill Well? Don't forget it is all Jagex's money regardless if they get it from TH, SGS, membership, bond or just take it out of their own bank account. Also don't forget some Jmods donated their time too. :)
