Default Tomb Raider Trilogy Challenge Tomb Competition


Hi-Res


Welcome! Here's how it goes...

Throughout Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider,and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, there are collectively 33 challenge tombs, including Downloadable Content. Each of these are diverse in size, difficulty level, and solution style. Now that the trilogy is over...let's do something fun!

The goal of this competition is to find out what tomb survives until the end. Provided after the instructions will be a list of all 33 tombs. Each tomb will be ranked through your choosing. Your top choice will be displayed as #1, and your lowest will be #33. All participants will send me a PM of their selections. Top choices (ranked #1) will get 33 points, and lowest choices (ranked #33) will get 1 point. The tomb with the most points collectively at the end will win! In the days following the deadline, I'll reveal all tombs knocked out (Day 1 - Tombs 33-28, Day 2 - 27 - 22, etc.) with some hopefully good commentary and discussion from you all


Rules
  • Don't sabotage a game or certain tomb in order to place one of your preferred ones higher up in the ranking. If you think a tomb should be #6 on your list, but want your #1 to win, don't make your #6 your #33, if that makes sense.
  • One entry per user
  • All tombs must be ranked, if you haven't played one of them, feel free to watch a video.
  • As it stands now, I'm giving one month from today (January 7, 2020) to gather your rankings and submit them to me. If there aren't enough submissions (but still enough interest), I'll extend it). Ideally, I'd like for there to be at least 10 participants.
  • Have fun with it! Don't stress yourself out over these rankings.
  • To avoid spoiling potential results, please don't post your lists in this thread. A PM or even a visitor message to me will do just fine
  • If you have any sentiments you'd like to share about specific tombs in your rankings, feel free to add them when you send in your list, I'll post them once that tomb is out of the competition.

Hey ! Sounds like fun !

I wonder if it would be difficult to make a precise rank with a list of 33 ! At least I know my top 3... Haha !

Gorgeous presentation by the way !

I honestly don't think I can make a ranking for all 33. Good luck to those taking part!

Can they even count as tombs? Most of them didn't even take place inside a tomb. Lol

Is there another way you all would like me to organize this so more could feel inclined to participate?

Maybe assigning a numerical amount of 1-10 for each one?

Maybe you can narrow it down to three rounds of 11 tombs, then when each round is done, the three tombs from each round with the highest score, goes on to a fourth and final round: making 9 tombs to choose from. I think ranking 11 tombs at a time is easier. I realise it takes more time and work your end, but it may bring in more participants.
