1. Wanwan

Wanwan has always been one of the best marksmen and heroes in MLBB. But the recent revamp of Corrosion Scythe has made the marksman for whom this is a core item very much overpowered. The same goes for Golden Staff. Also, 1 well-placed Wanwan Ultimate can defeat the whole enemy team sometimes. Due to these reasons, in all matches, Wanwan is either banned or picked.

2. Karrie

The same argument can be made for Karrie. But Karrie has become much more effective than earlier. Due to this, teams were trying to get Karrie, hence not much was banned. Also, Karrie is the tank killer in the game. So, Karrie has missed just one game in the whole tournament.

3. Gloo

Gloo has recently become one of the best side lanes in the game. Considering it can completely control a single target hero, makes it a great side laner. It can sustain a lot of damage without losing the lane.

4. Yve

Yve since its release has been one of the best mages for the tournaments. Yve’s ultimate skill can easily disrupt the whole enemy’s attack and also slows down the enemy. Also, during the ultimate Yve controls a large portion of the map and can sustain a lot of damage during that period.

5. Joy

Joy is the latest hero in MLBB. It has a good skill set which makes it a great 1v1 hero. But considering it is a new hero, completely strategizing for and against Joy couldn’t have been done most probably, due to which, it has faced too many bans. 

6. Kaja

Kaja is one hero which can completely neutralize one of the opponent’s backline characters. Also, recent changes have allowed Kaja to sustain more damage and no decrease in damage, so, just to protect the backline Kaja has faced such a high Ban Rate.

7. Fredrinn

Fredrinn is also one of the newer heroes. He can soak a lot of damage, deal a decent amount of damage, and regen. Due to these characteristics, players have been picking Fredrinn as a tanky jungler.

8. Valentina

The most irritating thing about Valentina is that she can steal one of the opponent’s ultimate skills. Many times, a good Valentina player would pick up the best ultimate from an opponent and use it at the perfect moment surprising the enemy. Also, Valentina is a tanky mage.

Shift in the Meta

Considering the M4 matches, Karrie has become the most important Hero right now. Even in ranked matches, Karrie is always picked or banned. The recent buff on the items has left many players afraid of the Hero. Another new change is picking Sustainable Heroes for the Jungle Role. And Fredrinn has become the favorite choice for this. Other options for this are Balmond and Barats.
