Mobile Legends Tier List 2020 - Season 17 updated (Sept)

Updated: Jun 20, 2022

As always, playing your favourite hero and just having fun should be the most important thing instead of trying to pick the "best" heroes or flavour of the month. But we do understand its not fun anymore when you keep dying or losing because your hero just does not match up well compared to its peers.

Since the game does not open up all its heroes for selection and require the player to invest Battle Points (BP) or its premium currency Diamonds to buy them, its even more critical to pick a good hero to main and rank up. A player can earn up to 8,500 BPs a week and the typical cost of a hero is about 32K BPs or 599 diamonds. This means that you can either grind for 1 month in order to unlock your hero for free with BPs, or pay about US$10 to get it with Diamonds (check out our previous article here to understand how we estimate the dollar worth of each Diamond).

We compiled a MLBB Tier List (to be updated seasonally) to help you solve the problem. Despite Season 17 coming to an end in a few more weeks, there is still time to chase up the ranking and dominate your battlefield! Pick your hero and conquer!

MLBB Tier List 2020:

Just in case you want a simpler tier table to analyze further, here's another version of the same tier list:

While all Tier Lists are subjective in nature, and heavily influenced by a player's skill level (e.g. if you are leet, you can pick any "D" hero and still dominate your match), picking a "S" or "A" tier hero tends to give you the most advantages in today's meta.
