Mobile Legends Patch 1.6.12 Advance Server Hero Adjustments - Most Marksman Heroes are Buffed!

In preparation for the new season, the developers want to adjust the marksman heroes. That is why aside from the revamped heroes for the new upcoming Project NEXT phase, a lot more will change the current metagame just from these hero adjustments.


The developers want Marksmen to be able to farm better in the Gold Lane instead of the Jungle and will optimize the gaming experience of specific Marksmen separately. They are hoping that these adjustments could bring an increase in Marksmen's appearance rates in higher-ranked matches, especially those Marksmen that haven't been seen for a while.

[Natan] (↑)

As we all know, Natan is from the future Land of Dawn, so the properties of the current time and space had caused him much trouble. Now, he has adapted and adjusted his way of guiding and manipulating the coherence of elementary particles, which resulted in some changes to his skills.

The current advance server patch, 1.6.12, also features hero adjustments aside from marksman heroes. The anti-marksman heroes, specifically Yu Zhong and Chou, were adjusted, not necessarily nerfed, in order to further boost the viability of marksman heroes.

There are many more hero and battlefield adjustments to come. Keep in mind that these adjustments are still being tested in the advance server.

Stay tuned for more news and updates!
