A foreword about me: I played a lot of DotA back when it was called DotA 3.3 as a WarCraft 3 non-expansion custom map. I played succeeding versions up to 3.7, Danite's Hell, and those that supported game modes such as -aram. I've also been a progression and hardmore raider in WoW and SWTOR. I play League of Legends casually.

Now about Prime World:

This is a MOBA but it's not just a MOBA.

It has the grind of an MMO that both casual and hardcore players can enjoy.

Casuals might like the city-building and city-management aspects of the game. You build buildings and order them to produce wood, ore, food, silver, crystals, or gold (cash shop currency). These resources can be used to buy heroes (like LoL champions), buy hero skins, buy talents, upgrade buildings, upgrade talents, send heroes on quests at the tavern, or rest heroes at the inn (heroes need to rest after a match or quest).

Casuals might also like the Zuma-type game in the actual MOBA part of the game. On the 5v5 map, you can have 3 laners, 1 jungler, and 1 playing Zuma, which helps your team maximize everybody's XP gain. When playing Zuma, a successful game rewards you with a one-time consumable scroll that you can send to anyone on your team, including yourself. The spell on the scroll, and the strength of the spell, is something you select before each Zuma game. For instance, you could start the 5v5 match and play Zuma to create a level 1 healing scroll for your jungler, or a level 5 AoE damage scroll for an early lane push.

Finally, for casuals, there is also a PvE map, ranging from easy, medium, hard, to very hard difficulty. And by PvE, I don't mean a "vs AI" game, where you're still in an arena but fighting bot players. This map involves protecting a central location from waves of enemies. There are also side quests throughout the "match", such as escorting an NPC down a lane or defeating all of a specific type of enemy on the map.

Hardcore players can enjoy the endgame, because there is quite a grind when you want to pwn with the best in the world. Your city can produce talents, but you are also rewarded talents when you play and especially when you win. Talent rarity is similar to WoW's, where some are junk and others are legendary, going from yellow, green, blue, purple, to orange. Each talent also has five ranks each, and you can, using WoW terms, disenchant all your junk talents in order to enchant your purples and oranges.

Endgame players can also enjoy the theorycrafting that comes with the flexibility of talent and stat builds. Using LoL terms, some heroes can be built for AD or AP (like LoL's Ezreal or Tristana), and some benefit from both (Akali). Most talents give you passive stat upgrades (+7 agility or +2.2 health regeneration), but others give you a usable skill (temporary invulnerability or immobilize enemy or self heal).

I have only three complaints about Prime World.

1) Matchmaking can sometimes fail you horribly (or benefit you immensely), matching up lesser geared/experienced teams against epicced out players. Mind you, bad matchmaking does not always guarantee a loss for the underdog.

2) Disconnects are an issue. On a good day, all my games go smoothly and everybody has good games. On a bad day, half my games turn into 5v4 or 5v3.

3) My biggest complaint is that all players globally play on the same server, and most are Russian, which leads to ZERO communication. The best you can do is to know the game, know every class, have good map awareness, and hope that your team is as good as you are.

Bottom line: I love this game now. I would say it's more casual than LoL, where people rage on you for being new and not executing your skillshots or timing your CCs perfectly. But then again, maybe they do rage here in Prime World and I just can't understand the Cyrillic alphabet. :)

Single player campaign is horrible and has cycling game modes....why not allow choice of game modes with cycling bonuses to play that mode? Fun at times, but very short-lived. Bought gold and did not receive the right amount.

Positives:

-The support that I've received has been very helpful.

-The town / economy building section is pretty neat

-Earning exp and gold (same thing) in game to spend on abilities or pots/truesight/scrolls is interesting, being rewarded with more "exp" for last hitting is neat.

-Multiple game modes, including the standard 3 lane 5v5, a pve mode, and others that are rotated on a clock schedule

-It can be a refreshing game change if you need a break from other more demanding mobas, like Dota or even League
______________________________________
Neutral:

-Bought heroes. I have the opinion that, like LoL and every other game that does this, if you limit core mechanics with currency then it can never be a truly competitive game. Does LoL have competitions and is extremely popular and makes a lot of money? Yes, but McDonalds is extremely popular and makes a lot of money, but I wouldn't call that food.
If you want something to be truly competitive and legitimate on a general playerbase level, you can't limit core mechanics to anyone.
However, it adds incentive to grind and play, and some people prefer that.

-Very simple. It may not seem that way at first with the flood of new information, but once you learn the Talent groups and get the gist of things it's a very simple game. Last hitting or being near creep deaths earns resource which you use to buy your abilities and stats, which levels you up.
_________________________________________________________
Negatives:

-Matchmaking. As a newish player, though a moba veteran, I find myself going against people with max level heroes and full rare or epic talent sets, and even some unique ones, when I myself have new heroes with no bonus stats and standard or uncommon talents. This is akin to a level 1 League player with no runes or masteries fighting level 30 players. It doesn't matter your skill level, or even if you're better than they are, there's just a very heavy disadvantage stat wise from the start. This makes carrying any allies very hard, especially if they feed. Normally you would be able to overcome that, but not with the stat advantage in addition.

-Language barrier. Over my hours on this game, I've run into one other person who wasn't a friend that spoke or understood English. This could be overcome by a translational chat wheel, or other similar device. One type of ping is not enough to communicate, especially when they're often spammed.

As a side note, after playing this game you will actually be thankful for "that one guy" on your team in Dota or League who you thought was bad.

I'm going to give this game more time and chances. At the very least, it's nice to go to when I don't want to exert myself on more complex mobas.
Until they fix the matchmaking however, I can't recommend this game.

A moba game with its roots coming from Russia.
The game consists of various unique features which are for example :
+ 2 Factions that war against eachother, you have to pick 1 faction to join, based on which faction you choose there are 2 unique heroes to play.
+ The "lobby" in this game is your castle, you are a castle lord and you can construct buildings that produce ressources and forge talents for your heroes to use
+ Previous mentioned talents are the "items" (more of less) of the heroes you play, you can equip a total of 36 talents on 1 Hero and every learned talent represents 1 Lvl.
+ Most heroes can be played differently based on your preference, for example the hero "Mage / Sorcerer" can be played either INT to increase Fire Flail damage on impact and Demon Summon passive AoE damage, or you can build him STR to increase Demon Summon ATK dmg, Transformation DoT and Energy Barrier DoT.
+ Different game modes depending on the time of the day, Dragonwald, 3v3, Native Terrain and more.

One huge negative aspect though:
HUGE language barrier because the communtiy consists 97% of russian players.
There was an english server once but it wasn't popular enough and merged with the russian one.
For some people it's a real pain in the ♥♥♥ to play because of the language barrier but as I mostly only play with friends it's not that bad.

Also, typical for a moba, this game will probably make you rage about how stupid some people can be, but that's a given!

a moba game where you also build a castle in the same way you build a town/village in so many browser/app games.

loot and rpg elements, wich does make it so you can change the way your hero lvls inside a battle, so dont have to worrie about what you need to upgrade in the fight.

The gameplay wasn't entertaining enough to keep me interested for more than a few hours, once I learned what the differences were between this and League of Legends / DoTA2 I quickly started to dislike the game. Overall I wouldn't recommend it but that's just because I prefer the gameplay provided by LoL/DoTA2.

This game is in no way balanced. And only three people I've met so far speak English. That being said, 10/10, best Facebook game I've ever played. Better name would be Russian World

Do you have a lot of money, do you like to dominate a video game because you spend more of it than anyone else, then this is the game for you, with the ability to unlock hero's that have incredible stats if you spend enough money on silver production, and the ability to give them incredible items that destroy people which you can create quickly with cash, this game is so blatantly pay to win it's painfull, there's almost always one guy on a team that has the best of everything in the game because he clearly paid for it and whichever team that is wins

There is a glitch with the screen where everything freezes and the health bars go everywhere preventing me from enjoying the game and seeing the action. Also I want more than one account so i can play both factions.

This game I would describe as: MOV for casual gamers. Nice graphics, a couple of interesting ideas, simple gameplay. If you are a guru pillboxes - you have nothing to do here. The game is perfect for those who want to play without too much straining at your pleasure. This does not mean that there can play carelessly, but it is not as high level as a pillbox or other LoL'y and HoN'y.
UPD. The farther into the forest, the more wood. Alas, but the project makes no headway (in spite of the new modes) because the most important and key points are not addressed. Awful curve MM (aka balancer) and the dubious quality of the servers (there are frequent departures of players, logs), make the game less comfortable than it could and should have been.
And yes, even though we think that direct Donat gameplay has no effect - it is only at first glance, is an illusion. Without the Golden Age (premium subscription), rely on the collection of high-quality talent is not necessary, drop rate is negligibly low. But even with a premium subscription, random loot is terrible: some talents do not fall months. In such circumstances, it is insulting to see a few players with sharpened at 5 talami and superior power. After all, as the developers did not deny the obvious fact, all the monetization of the game is built around power and Rola it, because it is their talent and quality, the most direct and immediate influence on the combat effectiveness of the hero. Something. how well you take advantage of these opportunities - is another matter and discuss it makes no sense, because that finger to the sky. But at the same time, no matter how good you would not be, if you have nothing to counter the enemy - you lose. It's like the coolest racer in the world to put behind Lada and say "you're a pro, udelali this sucker with a Ferrari ..." It seems to me a very apt analogy and fully transmitting MAT the problem.
In fact, we have some interesting solutions to the implementation of the curve.
