Mobile Legends Draft Mode for Epic rank and Above!


A more balanced gameplay for the stronger players!

For players that are ranked Epic & above, you chance of getting a fair fight is coming in the upcoming patch. The new game mode, drafting mode will be coming in the 1.1.90 patch.

The drafting mode features and balance changes will provide players with an interesting, challenging and balanced game play. Say no more to the never ending picks of Karina or Miya. There will be 3 phases in the drafting mode Ban, Pick, and Swap. Say Bye Bye to duplicate heroes as you will only be able to pick an authentic hero and neither your team nor your enemy’s will be able to pick the same hero as you. Doesn’t it just make more sense to not see your kage bunshin fighting you?

The phase will go by a 1/2/2/2/1 style, where you will be banning 1 hero on each team, and picking 2 by 2 and last pick. In order to play the drafting mode, player must own at least 12 heroes


Hero Banning

Hero banning is a new feature that will be introduced on the upcoming patch in the Drafting Mode. Players will enter a draft pick mode where each side will be allowed to ban a hero from being played in that match. So if your team is particularly weak against a certain Hero, you can ban that Hero from the game.  Both you and your opponent will be able to ban one Hero to make the game more challenging and enjoyable. When entering the Heroes selection channel, the 5th participant of the team will have 20 seconds each to ban a Hero from play.

Hero Picking

In the pick phase, you’ll be required to pick up to 5 heroes. Heroes that have been banned or chosen by the cannot be re-picked. The pick phase will go according to a 2/2/2/1 picking after the banning phase. The “2” meaning, both you and your team will each choose a hero, and “1” meaning either you or your opponent team will pick the last hero, following by the latter. After each team has made their picks they can proceed to change skins, set their battle skill, gear and choose an emblem set for their team. You will also be able to Swap with your teammate your hero with theirs.


You could have wanted to play a Hero but one of your teammates has already picked that particular Hero, this is where Swap comes into play, you will be able switch Heroes with your team mate. Players will only get 20 seconds to do so before the matchup starts

The Draft Pick Mode is expected to be integrated with other modes in Mobile Legends. Looking at it from a gamer’s perspective, the Pick/Ban/Swap changes in the drafting mode is likely to increase champion diversity as well as improving strategic play to provide players a fun and challenging online experience.

Other than the new drafting mode, A new hero will also be added, Wolf Hunter – Roger will be available for 24,000BP or 499 diamond on a 1st-week discount at 30% off.

    come on don’t do that , is really hard to play because support like estes will heal all the team , and the other team can’t do that , for me that’s really unfair

      Hi F1reman, In my personal opinion, the draft pick is pretty balance, since both team can choose to ban 1 hero each.
      Most common bans are Karina and Estes. The picks also goes by turn making sure there is no imbalance in the team. and other heroes are used as well instead of the standardized top picked heroes
