Definitely. I'm starting to be more active on Twitter and it's refreshing to see so many classic and reboot fans having nice conversations and agreeing that everyone should be more supportive and less confrontational overall. Even some people with the most extreme views agree with certain things the other says. It's heartwarming really. I feel like people are more of a community on Twitter, specially compared to TRF.

I'd also like to add that it breaks my heart to see A LOT of people saying they don't come here because they don't feel welcomed. It's a shame, really. This place would be much better if those people were more involved here. Sigh.

Still, I wish there weren’t as many entitled, childish fans across the board.
If they bring about this to the game for real; a difference in the air of TRF will change for good, guaranteed.



I'm addicated to this now.

I just had a conversation this week with a nice SOTTR account on Instagram and they said they lurk around here for a long time but never cared to join because the place feels toxic.

I think it would still be ripped apart for her face and stupid mullet hair, because I honestly feel that way looking at this (I just can't see past it sorry), but I would greatly appreciate it and it would definitely make me buy whatever DLC needed to get it there and then.

I'm not gonna go on and on about how I want classic Lara-isms back and then not support it when we get it. That's why I rushed out to buy Shadow new.

I don’t really have time for this place anymore but the amount of energy I’d need to tackle a conversation and to try to make my point visible is not worth the effort.

What I do find a bit sad is that some members devote themselves to defending their opinions and setting the dogs on anyone who disagrees with them that they forget about the possibility of getting along with those people. Not everything revolves around which Tomb Raider game is your favourite, perhaps you’re arguing with someone that might be your soulmate xD

Sounds like a person that is too fragile for the internet.

Some people aren’t even Lara Croft fans. They’re just fans or her old attire and looks. Reboot Lara (from what we’ve seen so far) doesn’t look good in any of Classic Lara’s wardrobe and she cannot pull it off without some sorta transformation magic going on.

Right she looks like a normal girl in cosplay. She doesn't look bad I don't think, she looks fine, but it's just still so... meh normal.

I'd still very much appreciate the gesture, it's not like I expect them to create a whole new character model just for some dlc outfits.

I think it would be a massive win though. After years of quite clear insistance that things must be as distant from the "inappropriately sexy" classic character as possible, honestly just getting the new version in some damn classic-style shorts would be a victory and massive step forward in itself.
