Default Clowns of the Tomb Raider (forums)- the movement, the legends, the history





Motto by LateRaider: I'd finally set out to clown myself; to find the circus. But instead... the circus found me.



This thread is remniscient of the Clown movement that took place between April to November 2019 as a result of the long awaited DLC8 for Shadow of The Tomb Raider / Definitive Edition. During this period of time speculation, hopes and dreams were poured in the infamous thread known by the name of:



Link

As each day passed by, the silence of CD/EM/SE transformed the thread into a war zone between defenders, skepticals, SoraSakai and GhostBlade, and many others. Tea was spilled. As various posts made by the officials hinted at a Croft Manor DLC most of us were losing it... and thus... the clowns were born.

Here are some screenshots I took from the meltdowns.












The Hall of Fame:



Honorable Mentions:


Highlight Article:
Tombstone and SoraSakai on the Alternate Ending:
Articles about DLC8 featuring 8th Tomb Slot thread legends:


The early stages of the clowning showed up back in april 2019 shortly after the release of DLC7 and most importantly the coming soon™️ in the tombs menu.
We didn't know it back then, but it was our fate to become the clowns we were destined to be.







Alternative logo for Shadow of the Tomb Raider by tomee:
Its implemetation in SOTTR Photo Mode is a much too difficult task for EM/CD, at least another 8 months of laborous work are to be expected








What gave us hope for DLC8 / Croft Manor DLC ?







Please post your clown avatar in this thread or share some feelings and memories you have of this moment.

i've always been a clown. believing in the last tiny hope, and of course, i wasn't any different towards tomb raider either.
it has been a fun ride speculating, and being in the circus with you guys. i think this clown family we've made is a way better present, fan service than dlc8 could've ever been. thank you for all the laughs.
Unfortuntely my clown avatar is only available in this tiny size but here it is

High key, this was probably better than DLC8. Just saying. Honored to be part of the memorable movement.

I’d upload my avvie in its HQ beauty, but the little issues in detail might throw it off. I’m definitely keeping it for any future clown get-together though.
