In pursuit of the hero!


Be the first to test the Desperado’s might!



Not too long ago a mysterious gun for hire appeared in Praia – Desperado! He’s so good that many a Lord now fears for his life. For this very reason a joint price was put on the head of the masked and caped stranger.

Those brave souls who decide to try their luck will have to head to the Borderlands at a certain time to vanquish as many foes as they can – one of the cowls might hide the mask with the impish grin.

The mobilization consists of several stages
(times in UTC):

  • August 25 (Tuesday) 03:00 – 06:00
  • August 25 (Tuesday) 21:00 – 00:00
  • August 27 (Thursday) 03:00 – 06:00
  • August 27 (Thursday) 21:00 – 00:00
In the given timeframe, fight on the Borderlands map and help your team!

Each stage will have its own winners: 3 players who make the most kills and 3 players who make the most assists (remember that one player can win only in one stage and one nomination).

They will receive 10, 20, and 30 legendary crystals for accordingly the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place. Moreover, each player who places 1st in a stage and nomination will receive a special additional reward – the new hero!

Do your best in Borderlands in the given time – and be the first to meet Praia’s new hero!

Patch 10.4.1




Dear nobles!

We present patch 10.4.1 that we promised you last week. As mentioned previously, it is dedicated completely to in-game price reductions and progress speed increases in early stages of the game.

See the full list of changes below.

Crystal price in gold reduced
We quartered the gold price for prime crystals: now for 1 gold you can buy 2 prime crystals (instead of 1 crystal for 2 gold).
Heroes
Silver prices for heroes have seen significant changes:
  • All heroes from 120 000 to 199 999 silver now cost 120 000 silver;
  • From 200 000 to 499 999 – 200 000 silver;
  • 500 000 and above – 500 000 silver.
First Win of the Day
From August 20, the first win of the day in Borderlands now brings even more rewards:
  • Each player receives guaranteed 2 purple (unique) and 1 orange (exclusive) talents for the first win of the day;
  • The improved first win of the day reward is also available to new players who have yet to achieve their first 10 victories.
Initial hero progress speed increase
  • Amount of experience gained for battles by heroes level 1-18 increased 3.5 times.
  • Orange (exclusive) talents as battle reward now no longer depend on hero level or rating (instead of requiring level 15 and rating above 1500, as was before). They can only be used by heroes who reached level 15 however.
  • We reviewed the talents received by heroes for reaching a certain level. Now at level-up a hero receives:
    • For level 1-10 – blue (rare) talents;
    • For level 11-20 – purple (unique) talents;
    • For level 21-25 – orange (exclusive) talents (sets “Native Ground” and “Awakening”).
Talent unbinding
Price for unbinding blue (rare) and purple (unique) talents changed – now the unbinding costs 1 silver (previously 1000 silver and 6 gold accordingly).
Removal of green (special) talents
From August 20, all green (special) talents stop dropping in battle as well as in the castle: they are removed from battle rewards, from the Inn / Teahouse rewards; they can no longer be created at the Talent Garden / Forge or attained by other methods.
All present green (special) talents at the moment in players’ libraries or on heroes will become blue (rare). Their power contribution and attributes will increase accordingly to the level of blue (rare) talents.
The Fair
  • Refreshing of the fair offers is now cheaper – 2 prime crystals (instead of 3 previously).
  • Due to removal of green (special) talents from the game, blue (rare) talents no longer appear at the Fair. Instead, purple (unique) talents will appear more often.
  • Purple (unique) talents now on average cost 13 000 silver (was 210 000 silver).
  • Prices for orange (exclusive) talents in gold and prime crystals reduced: up to 19 gold (was 99 gold) and on average to 40 prime crystals (was 55 crystals).
  • Chance of red (legendary) talents appearing at the Fair increased.
Golden Age
  • Each player receives 7 days of Golden Age ( http://en.playpw.com/gold/golden-age.html ) at level 5. All players from level 5 to level 19 will receive the 7 days of Golden Age as a missed reward.
  • Due to removal of green (special) talents, a player with Golden Age will now receive only purple (unique) and orange (exclusive) talents as battle rewards and in the Talent Garden / Forge.
Have fun!
Your Prime World Team

I really wanted to like this game -- the characters are fascinating, and it does have good gameplay. But this is one of the most cynical MOBAs out there. Take League of Legends, and cross it with some of the more obnoxious Facebook games. Energy mechanics to play specific characters (although you can spend in-game cash to reset them), Farmville mechanics to gather resources necessary to get boosts.

Rather than League's runes, masteries, and normal 'Q/W/E/R' levelling, you set up 36 possible levels in their own Rune system -- but those runes have Gacha style randomness, different levels of rarity / effectiveness, and you can combine runes together to level them up to level 5. These set up the level up bonuses that you get in match -- and their strength also contributes to the normal level up bonuses you get.

At all steps you're given incentives to pay money -- money can get you double XP towards your characters to increase their stats in a small way, double your rune drops, turn off the green (common, and incredibly weak) drops entirely, and many other things. While this game is ostensibly free to play...it's incredibly pay to win, as well. A person who spends money can buy some legendary runes to start off with that are a good headstart, buy the ability to pick up runes more easily, and buy the ability to get their resources faster to level things up.

The gameplay is fun...but I can't continue to play it with just how horrible the metagame is. Add to this the fact that the game is mostly popular in Russia and other Asian countries, with no regional servers--so you will almost always be matched with 3 or 4 players that do not speak your language, and it's just not for me anymore.

One day I was tired of Dota and decided to play this.. thing. It is a horrible ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ son of Dota, LoL and Farmville. It could work out, if the developers decided to make something good and playable and interesting. Who would like to have his own castle? But developers weren't interested in making a game - they want to make cash, as much and as soon as possible. So, you either spend months to get needed items, to build your castle, to buy new heroes, to get needed items... or you can spend a buck or two (or few hundreds). The game always reminds you of thiss possibility. "looks like you are building a house to store your items.. spend some cash and you won't have to wait 5 hours to finish it".

Was a fun game until everything in North America showed up in Russian after april 2nd. Can't tell if its an improvement or indication that the servers gave up trying to find a player base of anyone other then Russians.


Company seems confused, Play Dota or League, or Infinite crisis , Heck Heroes of the Storm. Just dont expect much with this game. They took half of everyones buildings away, gave everyone and Empty castle, and the most recent champion was Mr Freeze. ( Carbon Copy look alike from Arnolds Batman Mr Freeze )

Had a few fun games thats it.

I have played Prime World since its infancy on west - the game offers lot of customization through talent system which is great this is probablies the best part of the game and worst part of the game same time, why? Because it makes you grind so much for good talents and you have to get them for all characters your about to play, this leads to huge player level caps in que system.

When you have very big difference is in skill cap terms of talents, you need bigger pool of players for the game, because otherwise you end up playing very unbalanced matches all the time = this is what the game is now.

Also i have to say that the graphics are decent, but not best par with current MOBA competition, there is little to no customization when it comes to graphical setings, no anti-alias and colorblind modes are present.

Castle building can be fun for while, it is certainly thing to hate or love, it lets you actually do something while you in que for the game which is super nice. I have to say hero designs are really bland and they make hardly any effort to be unique or very interesting to play (Invoker, Mina, Lee Sin and Orianna).

I think the game had potential, but i think talent system limits balanced matches, games high skin prices are also to be taken consideration when choosing a moba as well. I have to give it thumbs down, since you can't give neutral between thumbs up :/
