The various corporations have monkeyed with Lara's personal history so much that IMO, there CAN'T be a "true" history for Lara. Optimistically, this allows us to imagine what we wish. Pessimistically, thanks corporations, for preventing us from being fully involved with the character.

i always figured she said that because even though werner did try to save her, at the end of tr4 she asumed he had left her for dead after she had saved him something like that

I assumed that Von Croy came to his senses (no more possession by Set) after Lara bottled Set up again in the tomb. In the final sequence of the game, Von Croy, reaches for Lara to assist her out of the crumbling pyramid when the ruin collapsed around her. I assumed that Lara's expectation was that he would search for her once she was entombed in the pyramid, but I guess he didn't. She didn't at
ANGKOR WAT so maybe payback?
And neither did she search for Amanda, BTW, when Amanda's foot got trapped at the ruins in puru. Apparently Lara didn't mind leaving friends in a pickle behind when she was young.
That's wrong. Von Croy performed a search operation as shown in Tomb Raider Chronicles, so Lara's assumption that Von Croy left her there does still puzzle me a bit.

Well i think lara got out for herself and she was so mad with werner that he never got the chance to tell her untill aod but he was too scared he forgot to tell her this but just told her mission.

And can you tell me from which moment of Lara's life is the photo of her and Werner in Egypt at the start of AoD?

What we're talking about is that we believe Lara went back to get Von Croy when he was trappen in Angkor Wat. Lara expected Von Croy to do the same thing for her when she was trapped in Egypt. However, although he tried, Lara doesn't see it this way. She was rescued by the Beduin tribe, and thus she believes that Von Croy did indeed leave her for dead because the last time she would have seen him would have been him fleeing as the Pyramid entrance collapsed.

Though the story doesn't explain how von croy escaped the trap i believe after enough time the globe broke and he got out.

It only really had a teleport function when used with the technology of VCI.
