Words from Designers: Dear players, thank you all for supporting our game all this time. However, we noticed that some players went AFK in battles and had an ill impact on the gaming experience of other players, which violated our notion of creating a fair and positive gaming environment. Therefore, we will enhance the penalties and take severer measures to restrain those players with low credit score. We sincerely hope that everyone can enjoy the competition in a positive gaming environment.
I. New Hero – Mustang 【Johnson】
Price: 32,000 Battle Points; 599 Diamonds, 30% off for the first week.
Johnson, with a hardy constitution as a rock, when he ran through the dome stadium like a heavy truck, the cheers of girls burst out loud. He led the team to lift the champion's trophies and achieved his peak of his life as a super quarterback with millions fans around. However, fortune is always fickle. A little girl rushed to the road in a sudden while Johnson was driving his sport car. To avoid hitting on the little girl, his car crashed severely. Massive hemorrhage was going to take away his life soon in a minute. At that moment, a miracle occurred, that the wreckage of the sport car started to blend into Johnson's body by a mystery force. Consequently, he not only just survived from the crash, also became a magical new human who can transform to a sport car.

Hi Mobile Legends! I have a suggestion, for those hero skill that has single target or specific target not AoE, can we make it like Hero Locked Mode? Where we can chose who will be the target of the spell? For skill like Nana's Morph, Eudora's Stun, Saber's Ultimate, Chou's Ultimate which have single target. It will be really helpful instead of casting it and targeting the lowest hp or closest enemy. The best thing to do is when we click the spell, the icon of nearby enemy heroes should appear and we can point it on their icon. Just like Hero Locked Mode. Thanks a lot!!!
