Mobile Legends Season 17 Meta Heroes
Even after getting nerfed, he still is one of the most banned marksman in the game right now. When you play Claude in 1-3-1 formation he becomes really OP, and as two people are always protecting him, he is very hard to counter. Moreover, his squishy abilities make him easy to enter and leave a gank in no time. He also has the highest attack speed and movement speed in the game, making him very hard to catch. He also has the highest base armor in the game and 2nd highest base mana in the game. You can now guess what he becomes after taking both the red and blue buffs. In our sense, he is a hero worth banning.
Kimmy is definitely neither an ordinary Marksman hero nor a traditional mage. This is the third consecutive season where Kimmy is in the overpowered section. Her long-ranged hybrid, continuous damage is one heck of a problem to deal with. Moreover, her mobile shooting ability, when combined with tanks like Hylos and Grock, is impossible to counter in the early game. If anyhow you managed to counter her early game, her mid-game damage spike is unbearable. Additionally, she is one of the best Carry in the game right now next to Claude and Ling. Though her late game is kind of weak among the other traditional marksmen but against a good Kimmy, she will never let you go late game in the first place.
After the increase in the range of her first skill, she became one of the toughest mages to deal with, in respect of damage. Luo Yi is the best support mage for 1-3-1 right now in the game. Her long-distance AoE and reaction damage make her an easy counter for almost all the early game heroes. When combined with a heavy tank and a marksman she is invincible to deal with. Not only this she can easily solo hold a lane while giving tremendous damage to the enemies. Though her movement speed is pretty low but with good positioning, she is really hard to deal with.
Esmeralda is a hybrid tank and mage which gives both physical and magical damage. She manipulates the Stardust and Frostmoon. Each of her basic attacks and skills deals damage twice and gives the target a shield equal to 135% of the damage. When she has full stacks she is literally impossible to kill even in 1v5 situations. Though she is a little weak in against the early game CC but her lifesteal and shield makes up for it. She is also the meta which is very hard to deal with.
After the slight buff Ling is now one of the most powerful characters in the game. He is the best carry in the game right now and has the ability to finish the whole enemy squad in one go. Despite his low damage in the early game, ling played in the 1-3-1 formation gains the gold advantage in the early game, overpowering other powerful early game characters. Not only this he has the least amount of counters in the game right now and is one of the most banned heroes too.
When you need a strong CC offlaner, Yu Zhong is one of the best. Because of his passive Yu Zhong is the most irritating character in the early game. He has the perfect skills to slow down the enemy farm and take down the enemy solo at every point of the game. If he is farmed properly he can also go 1v5 and finish the enemy carry easily. By using his ultimate or dragon form he can get in and out of a squishy gank in no time. For his abilities, he definitely is worthy of the meta title right now.
He is the hardest early game tank in the game right now. Combining his abilities with carries like Kimmy, Ling, or Esmeralda, he is one heck of a hero to deal with. He can also solo kill offlaners like Aldous or Masha easily. In the late game too he is very hard to melt even for metas like Claude and Ling. His stun and ultimate is also one hell of a problem as because of his huge HP, he charges and breaks down enemy formation giving an advantage to his team. He is also one of the hardest heroes to counter right now, even lacking CC abilities.
Revamped & Buffed Heroes list
His role is now both Fighter and Tank. With an increase in Basic attack and decreasing Physical defense, his new role actually suits him. He also has a new passive now in which each time he takes damage, he gains rage. When the rage bar is full, his next basic attack is enhanced.

There are also many adjustments in the battlefield such as:
- Gold or Exp gained from killing creeps shared by multiple teammates is reduced heavily.
- Respawn time is increased.
- Gold gained from MINIONs is increased by 30%. That means minions will give more gold than camps now. Hence giving an advantage to the offlaners and tanks.
- CD of some spells like Vengence, Petrify and Purify is increased.
- Gold Crab duration is reduced to 3.2s.
