Mobile Legends Top 10 Best Heroes Based on Official Statistics for Patch 1.5.17

With the adjustments brought by Patch 1.5.17, a change in the list of best heroes is expected. Did the nerfed Chang'e, Miya, Khaleed, and Ruby stayed in this list? Let's find out by checking the win rate of the heroes right now!

This list will be based from the official statistics found in the ML:BB Official Website. For better accuracy, the filter used for the best heroes is Ranked Game in Legend and higher ranks only. This list is taken from the October 19, 2020 data. Check this post out and it will be explained why these heroes are in this list.

The order in this list will be in increasing win rate percentage.

1. Ling
  • Win Rate: 52.88%
  • Pick Rate: 2.54%
  • Ban Rate: 18.35%

Ling is arguably the best assassin carry hero right now. He is mostly played as a jungler since he really needs to get the purple buff in order to be very effective. His superior mobility makes him one of the best heroes to farm fast, chase enemy low-HP heroes, disengage or escape, or simply play mind games with the enemy.

His damage also scales well until late game. No wonder why he has a very high win rate and pick rate although he is also one of the top banned heroes.

2. Argus
  • Win Rate: 53.11%
  • Pick Rate: 0.24%
  • Ban Rate: 0.04%

Surprisingly, Argus enters the list after the latest battlefield adjustments. His high win rate is because only excellent Argus players use him and they won most of the times.

Although, Argus is really not unplayable and replaceable unlike Sun which really needs a revamp. He has also one of the best heroes in terms of split push even though he can be outsmarted and outplayed during teamfights. Just play the objective game with Argus although he really requires his four teammates to be reliable in teamfights as he tries to get objectives.

3. Hylos
  • Win Rate: 53.13%
  • Pick Rate: 1.74%
  • Ban Rate: 0.27%

Hylos is still Top 8 in the rankings! He previously got a lower win rate and pick rate due to the popularity Atlas.

But since Atlas is nerfed, Hylos has been quite picked more again. He is also naturally tanky just like Atlas not in terms of hybrid defense but because of his passive that gives additional HP with every mana points he gained from items.

This makes Dominance Ice and Twilight Armor very beneficial. A very efficient tank for this META. His invade and zoning potential is also a great threat for the enemy team. He shines in early game and can scare aware any other heroes even against a powerful Grock and Lunox duo. As Natalia also shines due to her current adjustments, Hylos is being more picked to counter her. His ability to stun a locked target makes him more successful than other tanks which skills most likely miss when against skilled players.

4. Barats
  • Win Rate: 53.22%
  • Pick Rate: 0.81%
  • Ban Rate: 71.84%

One of the newest heroes entered this list! Since Barats was released, he seems to be auto-banned. Barats is a top banned hero but every time he is not banned, expect him to be firstly picked.

And everytime he is picked, he won most of the times. It is because of his amazing abilities not only as an offlaner but also as a tanky hero. His ultimate skill is quite annoying too. He is undoubtedly one of the best offlaners right now.

5. Masha
  • Win Rate: 53.42%
  • Pick Rate: 0.53%
  • Ban Rate: 0.14%

Masha is known to be the best in getting objectives. She can kill turtle and lord fast even if solo. She can destroy turrets fast. She is also very good in 1v1 situations. Most players are teamfight-oriented that is why she is not popular. But as long as Masha is used by a good player that can adapt in many situations, there will always be a way to secure a victory just by securing objectives.

Besides, objective wins games. Her plus quality as an offlaner is that she can steal the enemy red buff at the start of the game with ease. She is still effective even with the new battlefield system and adjustments.

6. Yi Sun Shin
  • Win Rate: 53.96%
  • Pick Rate: 1.31%
  • Ban Rate: 0.28%

The revamped Yi Sun Shin has now been noticed more in Ranked Games. He is now less banned and picked more. His stats are still outstanding despite of the small nerf in the previous patch notes. His impressive performance is not that surprising since even professional tournaments showed that he is indeed one of the best carry heroes currently.

Yi Sun Shin can farm fast, scales well, and has mobility and survivability. He can take objectives quickly and be very helpful in teamfights. He also has a global presence because of his ultimate skill that can deal damage to the enemies anywhere in the map and can reveal their locations. What else will you look for about this hero?

7. Carmilla
  • Win Rate: 54.63%
  • Pick Rate: 0.19%
  • Ban Rate: 0.05%

Carmilla stays at Top 4! She is still one of the best support heroes to use right now. She can also be used as an offlaner or even a main tank. Her win rate and pick rate also increased this week compared to the previous weeks' stat.

She is tanky because of her passive. She has CC because of her second skill. She can last long in teamfights and give sustained damage and lifesteal because of her first skill. Her ultimate skill is also a game changer. She may not be a very popular pick in solo queue but she can definitely help in winning games as long as you have a trustworthy carry hero.

8. Baxia
  • Win rate: 54.64%
  • Pick rate: 0.85%
  • Ban Rate: 0.22%

Baxia is one of the best tanks even before the likes of Atlas had been nerfed. Even if he has low pick rate, having a high win rate means he really is worth picking. This data is for ranked games only but in professional tournaments, he is mostly picked for either a tank or offlaner role.

He can actually do both. He is a counter against High HP Regen heroes like Uranus and Estes. He also reduces the lifesteal gained by enemies due to his passive so he is a counterpick to Esmeralda, Thamuz, and other high lifesteal heroes. He counters both physical and magical lifesteal including skill lifesteal.

9. Lolita
  • Win Rate: 54.82%
  • Pick Rate: 0.45%
  • Ban Rate: 0.06%

Lolita seems to be staying in this list for some more time even if the battlefield has changed a lot. She is a tank/support that counters the Marksman META. Her second skill can deny the damage from any projectiles and long-ranged basic attacks. She is a popular counterpick against Granger, Karrie, Kimmy, and Chang'e.

Thus, there is no doubt why she shines in the current META. She can even blocked the ultimate skill of Cecillion. Recently, her pick rate increased by a bit. The rise of other tanks and supports might be a reason why Lolita became a situational pick again. Yet, she still stayed as one of the heroes with the highest win rate.

10. Roger
  • Win Rate: 56.9%
  • Pick Rate: 1.98%
  • Ban Rate: 78.05%

No one would argue or be surprised on this one. Roger is definitely the best hero right now. He is an excellent carry hero since he is strong from early until late game. He is also versatile since he is a fighter and marksman at the same time. He can attack from long range or close range. He also has great mobility.

In wolf form, he is also tanky since he receives additional defense stats. Once Roger snowballed, it will be very hard to stop him. That is why most players in ranked games chose to ban him rather than risking a small chance to win against this powerful hero.

As you have noticed, all of the four nerfed heroes are out of this list. The adjustments made to them seems effective since it made them more balance in a way that they are now not auto-picked and if they are picked, it doesn't mean an almost guaranteed win unlike before.
