The update featured new laning mechanisms, creep interactions, as well as 6 of MLBB’s original heroes getting revamped looks and skills.

Here in this article, we are going to discuss the options displayed in the survey and the new UI and visuals that Project Next Phase 2 update is going to bring into Mobile Legends.
