Best meta heroes in Mobile Legends for Season 23
These following heroes are tiered as overpowered heroes (S+) which are currently dominating the meta. Players below epic rank should definitely try playing these heroes for the easier wins in ranked matches. Players from the epic rank unlock the draft mode where players get to ban heroes and these heroes must be definitely banned if players won’t pick them or don’t have the first pick while selecting heroes.
Mobile Legends January 2022 Tier List: Best Middle Lane Heroes for Season 23
This is the shortest lane on the map and is extremely important. Winning this lane gives more access to the enemy jungle and helps in rotating to other lanes. Mages are generally picked for this lane, but heroes that counter the enemy’s middle lane hero can also be picked. Here are some of the best heroes to go for in this lane:
Yve is definitely one of the strongest mages in the game. Her ultimate allows players to zone out enemies or even attack the backlines and can be used to secure objectives like getting a turtle, lord, or enemy buff. Yve’s first skill provides burst damage which gives her movement speed while her second skill helps her in clearing waves as well as slowing enemies. Her presence in a team can easily be the winning factor for the team.
Vale’s burst damage right from the start of the game is absolute nuts. In the late game, it is not surprising if Vale one-shots enemies who have not to build any magic defense just with his first skill. The second skill is extremely good crowd control which can be combed with his the ultimate for massive burst damage, enemies can’t escape from. Vale’s skills receive further advancements like an increase in area, damage, or crowd control when he levels up along with extra movement speed as he gets kills and assists.
Mobile Legends January 2022 Tier List: Best Experience Lane Heroes for Season 23
This lane is mainly for the heroes which are ability-based. Players can use fighters, mages, and even some tanks here. Here are some of the best meta heroes for the experience lane:
Edith can dominate the EXP lane as soon as she unlocks her ultimate. She can morph into her marksman form and deal ranged damage which hits very hard. Her CC skills in her tank form are also extremely good which can easily zone out the core of the enemy team. This tank/marksman hybrid is a meta pick in the experience lane.
In spite of the nerfs he received Paquito is still one of the best fighters in the game because of his dash, crowd control, and burst skills. Players need to keep his passive stacked especially if they are going to use his ultimate. Players can use their dashes to invade enemy backlines and eliminate squishy heroes. However, players need to learn Paquito combos and execute them correctly to win in team fights. With no Mana to worry about, Paquito is a very threatening offlaner.
Mobile Legends January 2022 Tier List: Best Gold Lane Heroes for Season 23
This lane is mainly for the marksman heroes as they need items before they can deal damage in teamfights. Some fighter and mage heroes are also pretty good in the good lane. Here are some of the best heroes to go for in the gold lane.
Beatrix is one of the best marksman heroes in the game with quite an arsenal of weapons. Her four guns (Renner, Bennett, Wesker, and Nibiru) can be used for any type of situation. Renner the sniper for long-range targeting, Wesker the shotgun for bursting heroes or turrets, Nibiru the machine gun for harassing/poking, and Bennett the rocket launcher for clearing waves. She is a versatile hero in a team fight. Oheb from the Blacklist International dominated with Beatrix in the M3 World Championship showing how devastating she can be.
After the marksman buff update, Clint has become a very strong marksman hero. His basic attacks after any skill he uses deal a lot of damage. After making some core items Clint becomes very deadly and if he gets a good tank peeling for him he can be very devastating.
Mobile Legends January 2022 Tier List: Best Jungling Heroes for Season 23
Junglers have to clear jungle camps like monsters, turtles, lords while also looking to gank other lanes. A good jungler can gain an advantage by stealing the enemy’s jungle camps. Junglers are the core of any team and require a good map sense to be more effective. Here are the best jungler heroes in the game:
Roger is one of the best jungler in the game. His skills allow him to gain a lot of movement and attack speed. This helps him to clear jungle camps and eliminate squishy heroes quickly with his combos. His immune skills can save him from dangerous situations and players need to have fast reflexes to be really good with him.
Natan’s early game got nerfed, however, his late-game damage can still melt any hero. Natan’s ultimate Entropy can be used to gain an advantage in team fights if used correctly. Players should farm safely till they have two core damage items and start joining team fights from the backline.
Mobile Legends January 2022 Tier List: Best Roaming Heroes for Season 23
This is one of the most important roles in the game as roamers control the pace of the game. It is a vital role as they are responsible for giving vision, engaging teamfights, and crowd controlling enemy heroes while supporting their allies. Tanks and supports are generally played in this role. The best picks for roaming are:
Mathilda has been one of the best supports ever since its release. Her playstyle as a roamer provides extreme mobility to her team. Mathilda’s Skill 2 can bring teammates along with her in the heat of battle while it also can be used to retreat. Her ability to shield and heal allies together with her Ultimate which can zone out an enemy makes her one of the most sought-after heroes to pick or ban. Even though she is getting nerfed and buffed every other patch to balance her, she still stays as one of the best support/roamers in the game.
Lolita has become a new meta since the M3 World Championship 2021. She has a dash, a single-target stun, an area-of-effect stun, and a shield that can block all projectiles. This makes her the perfect counter to all ranged attacks and skills. Players however need to position their skills correctly, especially her ultimate in team fights as that differentiates a good Lolita from an average one.
MLBB is continually shifting more towards a team coordination and hero synergy-based game. Players are always coming up with new strategies and line-ups with unique hero synergies making the game more fluid and ever-evolving. The Dev Team will be soon adding the new dodge mechanics in the game to skip rank matches when there is an unfavorable draft in a game. They are also introducing AI matchmaking which will be studying players and matching them with equally skilled players.
