Diggie, the Timekeeper of the Land of Dawn will be missing for the whole Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Season 11 playoffs (MPL PH Season 11) because of a visual bug.

Moonton PR manager Keith Medrano confirmed to the media that support hero Diggie has been banned for the remainder of the playoffs.

Medrano announced the news following the Blacklist International and Smart Omega series, in which the former won with a 3-0 score in the play-ins stage.

Diggie is the first and only banned hero so far in MPL Season 11 playoffs

“We’ve observed a bug related to Diggie’s lock settings and egg mechanic. With this, Diggie will be banned from tournament use for one week starting today. The teams have been informed ahead of the games. Let’s look forward to the exciting playoffs season,” Keith Medrano, Moonton Games regional public relations manager, told members of the media in an earlier statement. 

Mobile Legends and MPL also posted an official statement about Diggie’s bug.

“We have observed a visual bug related to Diggie’s lock settings and Young Again’s passive ability, allowing the user to see the opponent outside its vision range. With this, Diggie will be banned from the tournament until 16 May 2023,” it said.

Diggie, a hero often used by playoff teams Blacklist International, Bren Esports, and RSG Slate Philippines, experienced a visual bug, based on observation from the game development team. Competitive bans on heroes would mean slight changes to player rotations, often affecting compositions. 

Diggie is one of the signature heroes of MPL Season 10 most valuable player (MVP) Johnmar “OhMyV33nus” Villaluna and Bren Esports’ roamer Rowgien “Owgwen” Unigo, who is part of the SEA Games pool for Mobile Legends. 

The Timekeeper was played 17 times throughout the regular season, with 10 victories.

In the regular season, defending champion Blacklist International had the most success with the hero, winning five games in eight weeks of play.

The playoffs will take place from May 4 through May 7. Follow the action on this page.
