With their obsession with Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), Pinoys have become more and more competitive — from getting the latest hero skins to learning the prevailing most effective tactics available (Meta). Watching videos of winning moments and highlight plays may provide valuable insights on the latest strategies and game plans, however, there are more important aspects players should focus on.
In a learning session with the Greatest Gamer finalists, Ronel “STRONGER” Tan and Patrick James “E2MAX” Caidic – coaches of professional esports team Smart Omega – shared three crucial lessons. According to the coaches, serious players should take these lessons to heart if they want to clinch a spot in the national hero ranks and become “The Greatest Gamer” in the Philippines.
Clear communication is the most important part of teamwork. It is the key that enables each player to shine, as it allows team members to play their roles effectively. Communication will dictate how a team will move to make the game easier for them and harder for their opponents.
Sometimes, even one wrong spell for the hero can cost the game. In MLBB, there are 12 battle spells that players may choose from and picking the right one based on the team’s composition and the enemy’s roster of heroes will be a game-changer for the team.
Players should properly pick the emblems as this will dictate the early to late game of the team. MLBB recently implemented a new emblem setup for the game, revamping the old one to provide more flexibility to players. With this, players must be able to familiarize themselves with the new system and pick the right mix for their heroes.
With these three crucial lessons, amateur MLBB players can level up and even aspire to join the next iterations of The Greatest Gamer and be part of Smart Omega’s MLBB roster for upcoming MPL seasons.
