Patch 10.10 is live!

New skins, improved system of punishments, rebalance of the hero Inventor and more!

Lords und Ladies!

Update 10.10 has been installed on our game servers. Experience the long-awaited improved penalty system, along with a rebalance of the hero Inventor (and other), as well as new skins!
 

New skins!
Not long ago, two stunning events rocked the land of Praia. First, a famous warrior dared to challenge the wild Woodwose, even though that warrior was just an ordinary man. In the fierce battle that followed, the master of battle killed the Woodwose, but the cost of his victory was much too great.

At the same time, on a busy trade route near Fichter, an unthinkable large bandit attack struck at the merchant caravans. The leader of the gang could shoot with both hands at once and often donned a painted mask. “Take no prisoners,” he commanded. Of course, the same command was followed by the heroes sent to clear the bandits from the road. It seemed the evil villain was finally gone for good. But things aren’t always what they seem...

Stiffer punishments, fairer penalties
As we mentioned in the announcement, most of the work in this update was on the system of punishments and penalties. The former have become stricter, and the latter are now fairer for players. Also, the interface is now more user-friendly, and some aspects of the punishment system are now clearer and easier to understand. You can read more about these changes here.
  • Reports in battle and in the Castle are now split: each player gets 2 reports for each battle session. Also, even if a player spends both reports in a single battle, both are fully restored for the next one. The number of reports allowed in the Castle is still 3 per day, as before.
  • A player will now be banned from chat for insults automatically after a match if the offender receives 2 or more complaints of insulting communication during that session. A special algorithm will verify these reports, responding to key factors in players behavior. If the reports filed against the player are not justified, they will not count against him. Bans triggered this way lasts 24 hours. (This feature will be switched off right after patch installation in order to implement additional settings. We will keep you updated).
  • The penalty for canceling the pre-match window no longer grows with each cancelation and now always lasts 5 minutes.
  • Fixed a bug that made messages about punished players sometimes disappear and be sent repeatedly to the reporters. Now these messages will be displayed correctly: one time for each offender who is punished.
  • Now the user who is the target of a complaint will automatically be added to the ignore list of the player who submits the complaint.
  • Chat can now be disabled/enabled without going into game settings: you can disable chat by simply clicking the check mark next to the message entry box. When a player’s chat is disabled, that player cannot write or read any chat messages.
  • Players can now be added to your ignore list with one click from the game statistics screen.
  • Players on the ignore list will no longer be displayed in the Recent Allies tab after battle.
  • The status of a player whose is banned from chat is now correctly displayed in the lobby.
  • Fixed a bug where the group leader could not see when members of his group had active cancelation penalties.
 
Heroes
 
Inventor
The hero most affected by rebalancing in the 10.10 update is definitely the Inventor.

Our experimenting was fascinating and intense. Lots of people had differing opinions, and we couldn’t cater to all of them. The hero would have been severely imbalanced, as the players themselves said after all of the suggestions were received. In the end, we conducted a survey, in which the rebalanced variant developed by the game designers was selected. Thanks again to everyone who participated in the rebalancing. We really value your input in the project!

Parts
  • Now, in addition to Speed, Attack Damage is also increased by 1% for each 5 missing parts. The max total increase (when parts are at 0) is 20%.
Turret
  • Now placed without an animation delay.
Vita-Generator
  • Now placed without an animation delay
Time Bomb
  • Bomb projectile speed increased by 50%
Machinegun
  • Active time reduced from 4 to 3 seconds.
  • Damage per second increased by 33%. Thus the total damage during active time remains the same.
  • Increased the number of parts used per second from 14 to 18.
 
Freeze
Freeze is very well-suited to the current meta. He has lots of control and can play support without losing any of his usefulness, plus he is very good at fights in early-game.

Freeze is especially popular at high levels of play and in full parties. In the Prime Battle playoff, Freeze’s popularity (total peaks and bans) was 73%. We’ve redirected some of his early-game strength to the midgame and late game.

Ring of Needles
  • The damage required to free the target from the effect of the needles has been reduced by 15%.
Icy Blows
  • Damage increased by 15%.
Icy Fist
  • The enemy-drawing effect on hit has been moved from the main talent to the Permafrost Zone upgrade.
  • The slowdown effect that was previously added with the Permafrost Zone upgrade is now a part of the main talent.
 
Pied Piper / Rat Master
Pied Piper has a very similar role to Freeze’s – he can play support and has a lot of powerful control ability.

In the current aggressive game, every second of control is worth its weight in gold, and in this domain the Pied Piper can outclass any other forester. Pied Piper is still one of the stronger initiators and gankers but has been weakened somewhat.

Call of the Flute
  • Reduced maximum duration from 3 to 2.5 seconds.
  • The damage required to free the target from the effect of the flute has been reduced by 15%.
 
Prince of Thieves / Duelist
If Freeze and Pied Piper are popular, the Prince is a superstar!

Statistically, his popularity in the team tournament stage was at 75%, and in the playoff stage his popularity reached an incredible 95%. As you know, the top teams really play to win, they love the Prince, and not because of his beautiful eyes. Borderlands stats also have the Prince standing out from the crowd. Weakening the Luck talent makes the Prince’s defensive stats more important and makes the choice between damage and defense more significant.

Luck
  • Amount of damage absorbed reduced by 10%
 
Luna
• Sometimes, a hero’s complex mechanics result in minor technical glitches. We’re fixing these with Luna. Also, Luna’s ultimate has been weakened a bit.

Stasis
  • No longer works on heroes immune to control.
  • No longer removes an invisibility status from opponents – but does make invisible opponents visible for the duration of the ability.
Bugs fixed:
  • Fixed a bug where the dome summoned by the Stasis ability disappeared when Luna died.
  • Fixed a bug where using Luna’s Astral Gates could teleport you to an inaccessible part of the map.
  • Fixed a bug where the Serenity talent’s description did not always display the correct speed reduction value (based on the number of charges accumulated by the Surplus Energy talent)
  • Fixed a bug where an allied hero using Luna’s Astral Gates received a strength boost not based on his own strength but on Luna’s strength.
 
[/url]Battles
  • You can now set hotkeys during a battle, not just from your Castle.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the resurrection of Defender/Guardian to sometimes fail.
  • Fixed a bug where, when Defender/Guardian was killed, the killing could be attributed to multiple players at once.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the Inherited Talisman talent to not function at the end of a match if the talent cooled down while the hero was dead.
  • Fixed the description of the effect of the Life-Giving Radiance talent.
  • Upgraded the Mechawyrm skin’s death animation.
 
Castle
  • Fixed a bug that caused upgraded and bound talents to not be shown when improving talents.
  • The Fair interface is now always displayed correctly.
  • Fixed a bug that caused chat ban time to be displayed incorrectly in the Castle when it was greater than 2 days. Previously, some players were shown chat ban times which were 24 hours less than their actual chat ban time, which led to questions and misunderstandings. This will no longer happen.
 
Account protection system upgrades
  • Upgraded the automatic account lock system, activated by brute force attacks
 
Known problems
  • Inventor: Improvement of the talent «Vita-Generator» gives no additional parts.
  • Functionality of hiring the heroes Inventor and Artiste for silver is working incorrectly. While we are working on fixing this issue, we would like to invite those Lords and Ladies, who have not hired these heroes yet, to buy them via using special quests, which are already available in your castles.

Patch 10.9.1

New hero Luna and lower requirements for using talents!

Lords and Ladies!

Patch 10.9.1 was installed on our game servers, charming hero Luna is ready do fight in honor of Praia! While we want to tell you more about the new update first.

New Hero!
The Adornian scholar, astrologer, and just a beautiful girl Luna has arrived in Praia! However, do not be fooled by her attractive appearance because Luna’s role is Slayer! But slaying her enemies is not the only use she has for the energy of the cosmos. Luna’s abilities make her allies on the battlefield much more mobile, an attribute usually reserved for Support heroes. Interested? You can read more about this new hero here.



Just like previous heroes, you can get Luna in three ways:
  • Complete a seven-day quest chain. You will then be able to recruit Luna for 750,000 silver. The first quest in the chain is already available, and the last will appear on June 23rd. Once you have completed the last of the quests, you can spend the silver to recruit Luna right away.
  • The normal way to recruit Luna (paying silver without completing a quest chain) will be available for all players from 25th castle level and higher starting on June 30th.
  • Or hire Luna now for 299 gold.
With the release of this new hero, the price of S.Putnik has been reduced to 500,000 silver and 199 gold.

Lower hero level requirements for using exclusive and legendary talents
The requirements for heroes to use exclusive and legendary talents are now a little less demanding. Now exclusive talents can be used from the 1st level of the Hero and higher, and legendary talents, from 15th level and higher. These changes were made for two reasons:
  • This restriction used to be justified since players with lots of playtime could just pump up a hero they just purchased with powerful talents and then play at a lower level against opponents without high-level talents. Now getting exclusive talents isn’t as hard as it once was, before the first orange set was introduced. The chance of getting oranges has been increased (remember that your first victory of the day will always get you at least one orange talent), and the forge produces two talents per one Prime crystal. So in general it is significantly easier now to put together a good build. Therefore, we wanted to give this opportunity to make a good build to our novices, who just recruited the hero.
  • Beginning with update 10.8, matchmaking began to consider the Player’s Maximal Rating. For all intents and purposes, when playing with a newly-recruited hero, a player with a high maximum rating would be matched with players with a similar rating and similarly developed heroes. Together with matchmaking based on average power, this allows the requirements for talents to be relaxed, since in most games that result, players will be well-matched in average power and thus in skill.
Battles
  • Challenges mode is back!
  • Fixed a bug that caused the main building to deal no damage on the Outpost map.
  • Fixed a bug when after the Rampage ability activation, Tu’Rehu died, but the ability went on cooldown.
  • Balance Charm and Inspiring Hymn talents were reworked: Now when Max Health is increased, healing only occurs once – when the effect is applied. In other words, players cannot heal multiple times in a row by refreshing the effect.
  • Fixed a bug when cooldown time of the talent "Ritual Extermination" was not displayed when used on allied soldiers.
  • The Antifreeze effect is now also colored red when striking enemies.

Clans
  • Clan abbreviations are now always displayed correctly.
  • Fixed a display error that showed the clan list in the incorrect order on the All Clans tab and caused problems when searching for some clans.

Other
  • Optimized the game and improved game stability. Among other fixes, fixed a bug that cause connection problems to be handled incorrectly when in the Castle, causing the “Internal Server Error” message.

I really have no idea what exactly to write about this one. You get dropped off in the world with absolutely no idea what to do. There are some flashing icons so you start clicking on them. The ones on the left of the screen are what act as your guide - took some clicking around to figure this one out. Once I did, it wasn't that hard to figure out until I got to the battle portion. What a freaking mess that was. Not only did I have no idea what to do, I also didn't know how to play my character. I'm thinking the makers expect everyone to have ESP and know exactly what to do. I definitely would not recommend anyone download and play this game.

I appear to be one of the few people who have come to enjoy this game. People say its a grind, but there are clear ways to avoid it, that's kind of what the city building aspect is for. Just my two cents

this game HAD potental...

Nival just shoots it's self in the foot every turn tho...
HAD an ENGLISH server.... but they added a really bad profanity filter that would filter dumb words like "tower"

then they added in better traits or what ever they are called... but only the winning team had a chance of getting them.
with in a day a couple of the guilds were just dominating every single battle because the traits were sooo much more powerful then what we could get with out winning.
people started quitting and getting banned for speaking about the unbalance on the forums.... leading to long que times.
navils responce was to allow a LARGER power and/or level gap bettween teams.... leading to these guilds being able to stomp brand new players.

after a few months of this they merged the russian server with the english server.... again the russians had far better talents then even the english players that had been stomping the english server.
this lead to any russian getting placed on a team with an english player to AFK/Leave the match....

they also refuse to add smart casting... very annoying when you are repedidly casting a skill on a very short cooldown.


AFKing/Leaving/surrendering for no reason is still a MAJOR problem in this game.....

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.

Half way decent MOBA. Too bad this company is being run by incompitent thieves. Do NOT, and I repeat, do NOT invest any of your money in this game. Period. Don't give them a single cent. I played for a couple of months, spent some money so I could buy some in game items and whatnot. Then my account gets corrupted. I report it, and they tell me to create a new account so they can compensate the new account and remove the old one.

I do this and respond with the information for the new account. They then tell me that they won't fix it this way, and that I'll have to wait for the next patch to see if the next patch fixes my account instead. Beause apparently they just wanted to not have to do their jobs. Wait a week for new patch, it fixes nothing. I tell them it's fixed nothing, and demand that they now actually do their jobs and fix my account.

They tell me that they'll fix the account, but I'm being rude to them (I told them that the needed to fix my problem rather than waiting to see if someone would do their job for them) and then threatened to ban me and closed the ticket. I open a NEW ticket because my account still hasn't been compensated. Explain what happened. Account banned.

I'm currently investigating what legal action may be taken against the company, but it seems that with the small amount of moneey I've spent it wouldn't be worth all the time and effort that it would take to try to get the money back, and court costs are out. So you want my advice? Don't do business with this company and don't play this game.

Prime world is a dying game which does not address the matchmaking (which is broken) and the players that play on the Keeper side will sandbag every match in order to win. They enter with overleveled characters and stomp the competition with 4 and 5 man premade teams. If you are going to download this game, wait until they fix it first.

EDIT:
this game is ONLY good if you play it for as many hours as i did, if you play, play on the overpowered characters (listed by their brokenness Blademaster/Sesha, Witch/Moira, Nox/Vryl, Haka/Daka, Firefox, Cryo, or Jaegar/wolfmaster) because if you don't you'll get stomped and left in the dust. there are some of these heroes just mentioned that are raking in the resources because they are so easy to play, (i played my blademaster with crappy stuff on him and retired him when he was level 12 because i was so bored, seriously, he's immortal after level 13). I still wouldn't recommend this game because the heroes are so underbalanced and there is a definate lack of initiative on balancing the characters. Until the characters are balanced, my recommendation stands, don't play it if you are NEW.

TLDR: don't play it if you're new, you'll get stomped.

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.

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

this game is way too unbalanced. not nearly enough players. matchmaking is a complete joke. i have played this game for a long time now and i am seriously fed up. the changes announced in the next patch dont seem to adress any real problems. it could have been a great game but you can see the developer ♥♥♥♥ing it up a lot unfortunately :(

pros: very good map/atmosphere, very nice style of gameplay, easy to learn&play, there isn't insane aoe skills in game which can kill all players of other team.

cons: completely unbalanced and unfair. you must buy heroes you want to play, hero prices have an increasing lane and best heroes are most expensive ones of course. it's a P2W game.

Lag, long queues, poor match making, nothing special to make worth learning. Save your time, Play Dota.
