ML Tier List: Best Assassin
Nolan, turned out to be quite a dominant pick in both casual and professional games. The hero has a lot of interesting abilities which helps him deal immense burst damage to enemies. However, positioning is important as this hero can easily be pinned down with crowd control (CC) effects.
As one of the hardest heroes to master, being able to play her properly is a big achievement for a lot and can potentially lead to a long win streak considering she is one of the characters with the highest mobility and burst damage.
ML Tier List: Best Fighter
Role: Jungle or EXP Lane
Martis can do multiple dashes as he slashes enemies while also having brief immunity to crowd control effects. Martis can be played both as a Jungler and an EXP Laner which makes him quite flexible.
Role: EXP Lane
Yu Zhong offers a lot of benefits for the team aside from damage. His dragon form can open up opportunities to initiate a team fight while also annoying enemies with his crowd control effects.
ML Tier List: Best Mage
Role: Mid Lane or Roamer
Valentina remains as one of the best Mages in the game due to her flexibility. Her ability to copy a hero's Ultimate ability makes her very dangerous as she can easily turn the tides of a battle and use the enemy team's win condition against them.
Role: Mid Lane or Roamer
If you're up against stealthy heroes, Novaria is a perfect pick. Her Ultimate ability can mark enemies and reveal their spot for a brief period, allowing you to prevent potential ganks and work around their ambush. Her burst damage can't be underestimated as she can easily one shot enemies.
ML Tier List: Best Marksman
Role: Gold Lane or Jungle
Bruno can easily split push unguarded lanes. However, he still needs a good lineup in order to perform well. Make sure to have teammates who can work around your playstyle in order to maximize Bruno's power.
Role: Gold Lane
Ixia has finally found its place in the meta after quite an underwhelming debut in Mobile Legends. However, she still lacks mobility compared to other marksman heroes, making her very vulnerable to assassins. Make sure to have a reliable frontline tank to back you up when you use your ultimate ability.
ML Tier List: Best Support
Role: Roamer or Mid Lane
Mathilda can still maximize the potential of the Flask of the Oasis despite the recent nerf. Her revamped Ultimate ability also allows her to do insane engage and disengage plays. She is also flexible and can build both mage utility or tank depending on the enemy team composition.
Despite the Flask of the Oasis nerf, Angela is still one of the strongest healers in the game. She also enables a lot of assassins in the game like Ling who need as much healing as they can in order to take down heroes or objectives during a team fight.
Keep in mind that due to the recent changes, Angela may struggle in the Mid Lane and is better off as a roamer.
ML Tier List: Best Tank
Role: EXP Lane or Jungle
Despite the recent changes which lessen the viability of Utility junglers, Fredrinn remains as one of the best tanks in the game. The hero can build as many tank items as he can and still be able to deal massive burst damage with his Ultimate ability. His taunt skill can also be useful to get your enemies to focus their attacks on you instead of your allies.
Role: Roamer or EXP Lane
Tigreal made a resurgence to the meta due to a slight change in his Ultimate ability that can now stun enemies around the area of effect. This means, enemies will have little to no chance at escaping your grasp, allowing your allies more time to follow-up in team fights.
