Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is a multiplayer online battle arena popularly known as MOBA created by the Moontoon and released last November 2016. You can download it for free both on android and iOS. Mobile Legends is considered as an action real-time strategy game where a player controls a single character of his desired preference in one of the two teams. The objective of the game is to destroy the opposing team’s main structures, kill enemy heroes, and defend your base with the assistance of periodically spawned computer-controlled units who fight forward with you along the set paths.
Mobile Legends has five different game modes that include ranked match, brawl mode, match-up mode and human vs AI. Match-up mode and human vs AI are already available after the tutorial while you can unlock the brawl mode at level 3, ranked mode at level 6, and custom mode at level 7.
There are 30 heroes you can choose from right now in the game. Most of the heroes are available through either buying them using in-game credits or real money. These 30 heroes are categorized into 6 different roles: fighter, tank, mage, assassin, marksman and support.
You can buy hero skins in the shop using diamonds. Skins will give you extra stats and buffs which leads the game to becoming a pay to win, which I personally don’t like. I believe that players can still support the game by buying in game items without making the game a pay to win especially that they brand themselves as a “fair MOBA for mobile”.
Emblems and abilities
You can personally craft and arrange your emblems and abilities based on your preference. This will give you instant buffs and extra stats depending on what will suit your role and game play. You can buy or collect the materials that you need to level up your emblems.
In your basic information, there’s a profile detail, most used heroes, previous match results and detailed overall information about your past matches. This will help the player track their records and watch their improvements.
Sync your Facebook friends
There’s an option where you can sync your Facebook and Google account in the game. By doing this, you will instantly see all your friends with Mobile Legends account without adding them.
For a gamer who loves to play MOBA a lot, Mobile Legends is a piece of cake. Game play and controls are easy to understand. The only downfall in my opinion is the idea of becoming a pay to win game, the rest, Mobile Legend is not perfect and has room to improve but they only prove us that it is possible to have a competitive 5v5 MOBA in the mobile platform and I think it’s awesome.
