November 17, 2020: We’ve added the latest advanced server 1.5.30 patch notes to our Mobile Legends update guide.

It’s fair to say that we get plenty a Mobile Legends update on mobile. Developer Moonton likes to keep you on your toes with regular balancing, nerfing, and optimising your favourite heroes over time, to ensure that no particular option proves that much more powerful, or weaker, than the others. The latest update is no different either, as you’ll see below.

In this guide, we’re going to cover every single Mobile Legends update, detailing the latest and upcoming changes to the game. We’ll go through each of the patch notes to walk you through the changes so you know exactly what to expect. We’ll also cover any big Mobile Legends events happening, to help you make the most of them.

We’ll update this guide regularly with the latest Mobile Legends update and events, so we thoroughly recommend bookmarking it and checking back often to see what’s new. You can also check out our Mobile Legends new hero guide for more information about the latest new, or upcoming, heroes, and our beginner’s Mobile Legends guide if you’re just getting started.
