The concept of Mobile Legends or any other MOBAs came from its ancestral platform is called Role Playing Game or RPG which the tank is a necessity. This kind of game genre encourage players to take a single role to fit another for the sake of a good team composition. But believe it or not, tanks are the most deprived role that anyone avoids mostly during solo queue. However, most of the players are unaware that tanks are the most significant class or type whether in RPGs or MOBAs. So why tanks? Aside from other role, tanks are the one who always survive during battle. If not, they are worth to be there for the sake of victory. Why? So now, we will going to give you the reason tank is so important in every match of the game.
Tanks are Always on the Frontline
Taking jungle monsters during early game is such a hassle if your hero has a minimum survival stats. Let’s take the marksman for example; though marksman needs to be efficient on hitting creeps during the early phase, it is important for them not to compromise their hit points (HP). To achieve this, a tank is needed to grab all the potential damage instead for the marksman (Check this Pro tip for Marksman). Other advantage of having a tank can also let you consider your team of having a half-support-disabler.
During team fights, a tank often harass your opponent and forcing them to cast almost all of their skills and spells. After that, your team can easily penetrate their defense. Tanks are capable to take a huge amount of damage and can be consider a life-saver for they can sacrifice their HP just to make you safe. In fact, tanks can also act as a support.
Tanks are good Initiates
Preferably, tanks are efficient in initiating clash without hesitation. In spite of their advantage which is high in endurance, tanks are a good in setting attacks due to its skill set. With an acceptable damage, tanks can easily penetrate on target during clash and ambush. Unlike assassins and fighters, tanks can be an effective mobile support-disabler together with their fast-cool time skills.
Tanks are flexible
Tanks can act a dual-role during or before the game. This is possible through item builds and gem sets including hero spells. Its flexibility doesn’t mean they can be a mage or an assassin, but the word itself reflects on tank’s potential in supporting while fighting. During early to mid-game, a tank with decent attack items could be a good bruiser at first and switch to full tank at last game. Combined with fast cool-time skills, a tank can be a menace during battle without you having noticed the damage it dealt.
Some of the tank heroes does not possess skills that can deal high amount of damage. But there is one that can absolutely disable an enemy hero. Playing with tank, map awareness is also an important as farming. Almost most of the time, tanks are often dominate the whole map due to its mobility. Tanks are easy to play on. It is one of the simplest role yet easy to control. Without tanks, victory is uncertain.
