Playing Rank mode is accessible in Mobile Legends when your account reaches level 8. As a matter of fact, this mode is very controversial and intriguing where players are dying trying to get to the top. The most common issues in failing are acceptable but not for those players that fully understands the mechanics of the game. Moreover, the reasons on how to succeed may depend on player’s perspective and experience. We cannot deny that this game has a lot of dos and don’ts that players should go along with and of course, let us don’t forget about planning strategically.
Aside from the basic mechanics Mobile Legends are like other MOBA games that needs a stable internet connection. Of course, internet connectivity is a great factor but how about player’s skills? Focusing on “just winning” will take you to nothing, unless you will going to find out on how to deal with your playing skills. Be advised that every player has different levels of playing skills. There are a lot of things you need to develop before you can escape the epic rank game. Players are often rushing up things; it is normal, but ignoring the basics is not a wise choice. So instead of finding a solution on how to win, it is much better if we will find it in opposite. On the contrary, let’s take a look on player’s routine on what are their viewpoint about Mobile Legends. Here are the top 10 reasons why they can’t escape epic rank mode.
1. Unorganized Item Build
Probably, every hero type has its own attributes that needed to be enhance through the use of items or gears. Let’s make the “Tank” as an example. Tanks are commonly known for their endurance, high HP, and defensive capabilities. Next question to remember – “what am I going to do with my role?” A lot of players love to experiment different item builds but in the long run, this won’t work. Instead, why not focus on the strength of your hero and enhance its main attributes. Make a better item build for your hero before starting the game. The more your items are compatible for your hero, the easier your team mate would recognizes your capabilities. Organize your item build!
2. Experimenting Hero
Rank mode is not like other game modes in Mobile Legends. It is not practical if you treat this method as a tutorial mode. In rank, picking a hero that you do know how to play will give you a good fight with your opponent. STOP using heroes that you don’t know its capabilities. Focus on just one role on where you are good at, and enhance your item build. Through this method, you can easily fit in an established teams. Though not all times your team mates are online to team up with you, knowing your gameplay better would be the best contribution for your team mates.
3. You’re on the Wrong Team
Perhaps you may consider playing together with players you already know. Playing with players you don’t know will give you a lot of game disadvantage for the following reasons: you are unaware of your team mate’s skills, your team is either unorganized, and one of your team mates don’t know how to play their hero. Moreover, some players prioritizes their ego instead of considering teamwork. This will bring your team down. Not only you will surely loose, but you’re also wasting your time. So advice yourself to play together with your friends during rank games. They’re the ones that will back you up when you’re in need of help.
4. Wrong Choice of Hero
In MOBA games, team composition is very important to taste victory. A good and well balanced choice of heroes can give compliments to each other. While having the nicest pick, every team member can easily gank, score, eliminate enemies, and pushes tower immediately. The reason why picking an essential hero is a necessity is because specification of roles are better compared to unorganized picks. So what if you can only just play one hero? As mentioned earlier, play with your friends so that they might able to adjust for you. Always be a team player! Mobile Legends is not a one-on-one game, it is 5v5.
5. Map Unawareness
Don’t forget that there is a map located at the top left of your screen. The map indicates a blue dot as your allies, and red dot for your opponent. Most of the time, your opponents may gain gold and experience through ganking. But, if you and your team mates are aware of the map, spotting a red dot may give you a hint to avoid getting killed. As an advice, always look at the map from time to time. Remember, if one of your opponent is not visible on the map, advice your team mates to get ready for battle. Always look on the map!
6. Not Destroying Towers
The main objective of the game is to destroy the enemy’s main base. Most of the time, players are enjoying farming with jungle monsters and minions rather than destroying opponent’s defense. Tower in Mobile Legends has a big role when it comes to defense. So pushing is one of the most effective strategy as it could lead your team to dominate the whole map. Once your team took down all of the towers, it is easy for you to camp alongside within the enemy’s perimeter. And not only that, once your team destroys a tower the gold will be allocated to all of your allies. So the first game plan must be “taking down tower” first.
7. You Don’t Take the Monster’s Buff
Taking the blue buff and giving it to the right hero will give your team a great advantage. It will boost the hero’s status depending on their type. Do not be greedy. Give the last hit to someone who badly needs it. Although junglers needed these type of monsters, they can share it with carries. Carries are late-game heroes such as marksman, which deals huge amount of damage to an opponent. It is very beneficial for your carry to level up and accumulate money faster for them to progress their item builds.
There are other benefits when you hunt jungle monsters like taking down the Lord. But a little advice, take it down at the right time and at the right moment. It will serve as your ally that will help you get through with tower take downs.
8. Miscommunication with Team Mates
The game interface consist of four command buttons which enables the player to communicate to their team mates. If you’re not fast enough to type a message, then these options can help you communicate with allies. Although it would take a lot of practice to develop your muscle memory on controlling the game while using command buttons, it is worth the wait. Always put in mind that a single miscommunication will make your team fall. And most of all, don’t forget to give compliments to your team. It will raise their battle morale, making it more fun and adventurous in game.
9. Playing without Strategy
Frequently, most players are just playing Mobile Legends but are unaware of strategies. First of all, MOBA and other RPGs alike is a strategy game that requires average research. It would take a little amount of time to familiarize all the mechanics of the game and after that, a team can simply create their own meta. So playing without knowledge will obviously stop your account’s progress and be stuck- up. Not only that, don’t ever forget that you are playing in a team. As a result, not only your account will be compromise, but also your team’s. So do your best, and think for the better best.
10. Attitude Matters
As mentioned above, Mobile Legends is a strategy game that needs teamwork in order for a team to achieve victory. Egos and rudeness may affect the team’s game performance. It is not a good choice to be rude because of some errors. Remember, errors are commonly occurred during the game and it cannot be avoided. But, a few encouraging words can be a great help to boost your team’s confidence. Most of the time, long tempered players always get the job done. They can focus on the game even if their team mates are messing around.
Also, do not ever overestimate yourself. Be knowledgeable and reasonable enough when you are facing your opponent. Sooner or later after the end of the game, you will realize that it is not too late to start over. You can play for another round with a fresh start. Make your errors as a lesson and take your chance to avoid unnecessary decisions. Imagine if you are being rude with your team mates, the game will just reset its phase, but the confidence of your team mates will not. Just enjoy the game together with your friends and create a great experience playing in rank mode.
