Ranking up in Mobile Legends is not very easy compared to other games. A player may get frustrated grinding the game and may still not be able to rank up. However, there are some tips that can be followed for ranking up. Let’s jump straight into: How to rank up faster in Mobile Legends.
Tips to rank up faster in Mobile Legends
1. Get Some Friends
Mobile Legends is a team game. It can be easier for a person who plays with the same group of players as compared to a person who always plays solo. It is generally easier when playing with a group of friends where each of you specializes in a specific role. Also, with proper voice communication, it will be easy for the team to gank or rotate. In solo ques, it can be noted that voice communication is rarely used. Thus, it is highly advised to play with the same group of players.
2. Assassin role in the lower rank
Generally, it is recommended to play the assassin role. This is because you can easily jungle as an assassin, deal with high damage in the early game, easily snowball later on.
The fact that we do not recommend to play the role of a marksman as a solo queue player may surprise you. But, it is advisable to play Marksman only when you have someone in the team who can help you to farm. This is because marksmen are resource-heavy. If you are not able to farm faster early in the game or if someone steals your farm away, you will be useless in the game.
Why not Tank? To be a good team player, you can opt for playing the role of a tank. However, you should know that if you play the role of a tank, the whole game depends upon your team who have to get the kills. If your team’s performance is bad, there is not much that you can do as a tank.
Why not a Fighter? This is because you need to farm up a bit in order to be well activated. It usually takes around five minutes to reach that point. Also, an assassin can provide you with high burst damage as compared to a fighter.
3. Map Awareness
Map awareness is the most crucial element in any MOBA. You should always try to keep an eye on the mini-map. This can help you to gank the enemies or help your team when they are in need. Also, it can prevent your hero from dying unnecessarily.
Also, when you are laning, you can stick by your tower if you see the enemy heroes missing from the map.
On the other hand, if your team is defending the high ground and you’ve decided to split push, keep an eye on the number of the enemy breaking the high ground, then you can decide to continue the split push or teleport back to base.
It is extremely important to have the knowledge of the hero that you play. If you are playing a hero for the first time, do not use it in a ranked match. You should first practice the skills of the hero and then play a ranked match only when you are comfortable with the hero.
Also, having some knowledge about all the heroes is important. This is because when you face a hero, you will be knowing the abilities of that hero and you can fight the enemy better. Learn to initiate or disengage from the fights. You should have knowledge about the heroes such that you can decide upon initiating or disengaging from a fight.
At the end of the day, know when to engage or disengage! and good positioning is the key to climb ranks.
Target the Weak or Squishy Heroes
You should try to target the squishy or the damage-dealing heroes in the enemy team. There must be at least one such hero in the enemy team. e.g. Mage or an under-farmed assassin. Keep an eye for them on the mini-map to see if they have over-extended. Just keep targeting them in the game and you can stop them from farming gold.
Sometimes, the tank leaves the MM alone in the early game. Also, the MM over-extends on the map while trying to farm.(Farming alone in Bottom Lane). You can always try to look for such opportunities and kill the Marksman.
High Ground Defense
Defending high ground is very important in Mobile Legends. Some teams just ace at it(Aim for taking your high ground). This is because, if you give away the high ground, the enemy team can farm your jungle and slay the lord easily. Thus, you should always try to defend your turrets in the high ground.
Sometimes the enemy team may split up and over extend to take the high ground. You should wait for this opportunity and gank on the solo enemy hero who has overextended a part of the map with no support.
If you manage to get some friends, it will be easier to get a combo off. But considering that you’re solo-Queuing, don’t spam your abilities unless necessary. Normally you should wait for the tank to initiate and pick out the enemy heroes trying to deal with damage from a long-range. Keep an eye on the map at the time of a team fight. It becomes essential for the players to be aware of the enemy heroes trying to gank upon them from behind.
Enjoy the game. Do not get irritated if you lose a game. At the end of the day, you should understand that there is always space for improvement. Instead of getting irritated, you should try to learn from the games that you lose. Stay focused, and you can definitely reach the Mythic rank within days.
The phrase “it’s just a game” is such a weak mindset. You are ok with what happened, losing, imperfection of a craft. When you stop getting angry after losing, you’ve lost twice. There’s always something to learn, and always room for improvement, never settle.Ninja (Twitch)
