Mobile Legends is a mobile Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game developed by Moonton and released in 2016
. This free-to-play game features two teams of five players battling over three lanes and a jungle to take down the enemy’s tower while defending their base. Each player can choose a hero corresponding to one of the six roles available in the game: Tank, Assassin, Marksman, Fighter, Mage, and Support. In addition, each hero has unique traits and abilities and can have different kinds of builds that influence the playstyle, thanks to in-game items and emblems.
Mobile Legends proposes different game modes:
· Classic: The classic version of the game for practicing or casual fun with your friends.
· Ranked: Winning or losing a game in ranked mode will influence your overall ranking. In ranked games, you will automatically be matched with players with a similar rank as yours. Seven ranks exist in Mobile Legends: Warrior, Elite, Master, Grandmaster, Epic, Legend, and Mythic.
· Other modes: Mobile Legends also features a lot of sub-games with different strategies.
1. Choose your play style
A game like Mobile Legends offers many gameplay possibilities, and it is up to you to find your strengths. From choosing the proper role to picking the right hero and lane placement, you must keep trying all the possibilities until you’ve found the right fit. We recommend training on a roster of 4 to 5 heroes so you can face any situation depending on your team build and know your opponents’ strengths and weaknesses.
2. Pick & Ban carefully.
The pick and ban phase before the game starts is crucial and determines how the rest of the game will go. Try to stay informed on the current meta and do your bans depending on the latest nerfs and buffs. Lastly, make sure to have a team balanced with all the roles available; if you are the last person to pick, you should choose a hero that will make sense with the rest of the team and be efficient against the opponent.
3. Focus on your lane
Don’t be too greedy at the beginning of the game: you should focus on pushing as much as possible into your opponent’s lane by destroying the minions and the first turret. Remember, Mobile Legends is a tower game!
4. Don’t play solo!
Mobile Legends is a team game; therefore, communication and cooperation are essential. You should always keep an eye on your mini-map and stay on the look for team opportunities or situations where your support would be required. Wasting your time in 1v1 fights will increase the chance of you not being alive or ready when your team needs you the most!
Never give up because you lost a game; instead, learn from it. Analyze your games and search for an area of improvement, individually and as a team. Practice makes perfect, and by working on yourself, you will be dominating the arena in no time!
