Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.60 Update: Battlefield adjustments

Mythic Battlefield has been out for over six months. By adjusting some of the battlefield values, especially for the Mythic rank, Mythic players’ gaming experience had been improved, without affecting that of other players, which was the right approach to improve everyone’s experience.

This time, heroes’ attribute values have been tailored. Due to their special skill mechanics, a small number of heroes’ performances may vary drastically in different levels of play, which makes it difficult to satisfy everyone using the same set of values. Therefore, their base attributes have been adjusted for different skill brackets while following the rules below:

  • The number of heroes with dynamic attribute values shall not exceed 10 at any one time. The optimization of the heroes themselves is being prioritized, and this approach will only be taken when the optimization is proven ineffective.
  • These heroes will first be adjusted normally based on their performance in Mythic play.
  • Only the base attributes will be affected. The skill casting experience will remain unchanged.
  • Each hero may only have one dynamic attribute.
  • The effect only takes effect in Ranked. It is determined by the highest rank of the members in the lobby.

In this Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.60 Update, the above approach will be tried out with Alice, by boosting her Mana Regen in lower play, with the hope that this will improve her performance in the lower-average play, without affecting higher-ranked matches.

Due to the lack of higher-ranked players on the Advanced Server, only her Mana Regen has been adjusted in the Warrior and Elite rank and will she will be monitored closely.
