Notes from the uploader: A rather unique Open RPG set in a mythical Greece. Pretty fun to play and the Warlock class is buff :p

    I have uploaded version 1.33 of The Black Road by WaterMolecule and FatherTime, and put the map in RPG / Role Playing Game type and the Medieval / Warcraft category.
    This is my review for version 1.33.

    Rui's Review
    [?]Hive Workshop Requirements: The map has been uploaded by the public resource provider.
    [+]Imported Material: What would a RPG be without a few imports? I should note, however, that the imported icons' passive versions were very low quality.
    [+]Machine/Net-Friendly: The map lagged at start. There was also a slight noticeable delay, that seems to be over after a while. Still, it's playable.
    [+]Bugs: I found no bugs. I must admit, I quit early, especially for the reasons mentioned below, but while I played I saw no bugs.
    [+/-]Originality: Just another RPG. The fact that the story was somewhat original is a plus, but still...
    [+/-]Balance: Well, the game is balanced... you have to go heal after a while, the traditional 'bleh' of RPGs.
    [-]Terrain: The terrain was awful. Nothing of what I would expect of a RPG.
    [-]Ingenuity: The only effects I saw were that one of the Black Arrow on the Ranger.
    [-]Fun Factor/Gameplay: The game becomes boring pretty quick, compared to RPGs such as The Kingdom of Kaliron. This is just another traditional go-kill-creeps RPG.
    [-]Object Editor Work Quality: A bunch of creeps and heroes thrown into the game. I see nothing else. The skills had some triggers put into them but let's be honest: they are boring.


    I played this game because I see it often hosted at Battle.Net, at least on the Northrend (European) server. The bad taste Europeans have for maps is well known: cheap tags, (way-too-much-)DotA, the 300 versions of Footmen Frenzy, low-quality TDs, etc... Summarizing it up, I don't see how would anybody play The Black Road when there are games such as The Kingdom of Kaliron out there. Only in Europe and nowhere else.
    I'm not American, if you got that impression.

    My rating for this resource is 2/5 (Lacking).

    dang 3/10. that's pretty low. for this, At least i think.

    I haven't played that other game you talk about. but just because the other game may be better doesn't mean this one is boring.

    Anyway i played this game a while back, older version. ya i got bored after a few hours, but its got some fun to it, sorta keeps you moving because you have run back to the road time to time. I think its had alot of work put into it. And its decently done. could the terrain and a few things be better, most likely, and does it get a little old after a few hours, sorta.

    But even with that, this is a high quality game, i haven t played all the games like this on bnet, but this one is good. I would say 8/10.

    But that's just what i think :)

    p.s. I would have continued to play but i always lose my code...

    The Kingdom of Kaliron is hosted here at the Hive, just check the Hosted Projects category on our Forums.

    I guess I'll change the rating to 2/5 which in the map rating is the same, maybe the lack of mood for RPGs consumed me without even knowing. It is a playable map after all.
    Still, it fails in uniqueness, so I do not feel capable of rating higher than that.

    im sorry but your review makes me think you played the rpg for maybe 10 minutes. You obviously have not seen the unique qualities of TBR.

    this is one of the best orpg till some time, coz there are no good orpgs yet, only tkok.

    terrain 2/10 - nothing special
    heroes 5/10 - cool models, some nice spells, but also nothing special
    items 8/10 - nothing special at all, but item stacking is only one thing that keeps this map played imo
    monsters 5/10 - some nice features but if u want to play for a long time, boring like a hell

    + for that alot of ppl playing it

    lot of bugs, imo worth to play for 1 week not more. Maybe tbr 2.0 with dungeon maps will be better, well see.

    overall - 6/10 = 3/5

    Terrain , I bet you could never do anything like it
    Heroes , someone like you could never do those spells

    Overally , how about you make an ORPG and I will be seriously suprised if it won't a map named just another warcraft 3 map , that has 1 level 1 paladin with ordinary skills and 3 ghouls

    lol, they are mapmakers / im player - they are making maps for ppl like me and when i dont like something, it is a natural thing that i will tell what i dont like

    for example terrain in tkok beats in every way tbr...

    and tip for u dude - learn what is criticism

    what i hate about this map is that i want to play this alone but i cant because it has to be 2 or more players and the save code is way way too long, thats bullshit

    While this has poor reviews, it is still a decent game.

    i have to admit, i'm horrible at making maps, but don't think that my opinion doesn't count. i played this game, people think its great, tbh its old, and kind of stale for alot of people out there. i dont like it as much. it was fun for awhile, now.. no offense i try not to offend.. it kind of bores me to tears.. :hohum: wow that was hard to say >.< anyways i used to like it, but its pretty much dated. there's no specific thing wrong with it, just, stale.. anyways sorry about being offensive in any way but. 2/5 ( let me wait a few days until i can rate *sigh*)

    The makers of this map have added me to some kind of ban list for no apparent reason at all. Thus I demand that they eithor remove me from their banlist, state why they do not like me or else should this site really distribute a map made by people who ban members of the public for no reason.

    Yes I have done some things 3 years ago, but I never really did anything to this map nor were even aware of it until I searched my name in google and found me on a banlist hosted by the offical TBR website.

    Thus I say 1/5. As that rating makes as much sense as their current black listing of me.

    Well that is really arrogant of the community, especially when half the people adding you don't know you.
