Now that MPL (Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League) is about to begin, teams all over the region are preparing. Also, it has been reported that the upcoming season will have the biggest prize pools in any MPL event; that’s why teams are all over the place finding the correct roster that will suit them in the upcoming event.

On July 7, a post from the MPL ID (Indonesia) surfaced, hinting at the possibility of MPL implementing the “Global Ban” rule. To those who aren’t familiar, Global Ban is a tournament rule in which each team can only use a hero once in a series (except in the final game of a best-of-seven series). A team will be prohibited from picking a hero if they already picked it in a series. For example, Team A picked Miya in game 1, on the next game, they won’t be able to pick Miya again as they’ve already picked it. Team B, however, can select Miya from the pool. In game 3, both teams cannot pick it since both of them have already used it.

Prior to that IG post from MPL ID, Moonton had already implemented the global ban rule in MDL (MLBB Development League) Indonesia Season 6 play-ins. This replaced the traditional pick and ban system we are all accustomed to.

During a podcast from Mirko and Arashi, they discussed the major effects of the Global Ban rule on the meta. 

“Players who are famous for playing only one hero, they’re gonna struggle a lot because back then, you can be forced to ban them out and that just makes the whole Ban Phase Dynamic different,” stated Arashi. 

“If there’s Global Bans like that, that’s gonna make everything just so much different and that’s gonna put a lot more pressure on analysts, not just coaches, and try to get that data down,” Arashi added.

While both agreed that Global Ban is a fun concept, both also agreed that Moonton should not implement it, especially in A-tier tournaments like the MPL.

“Reading the meta is something that’s gonna be a skillset of its own. That’s how teams have been dominant so far and if they add this Global Ban… everything you have planned before, the strategies, it’s gonna be pretty randomized now.” Mirko added. They further elaborated that this rule alone can ruin how each team approaches the game. How it can hinder a coach’s advantageous strategies and that it limits the teams’ creative tactics.

There hasn’t been an official announcement from MPL or Moonton about the implementation of the Global Ban. But, if Moonton is really that serious about implementing this rule in the MPL, we are going to witness a total of 30 different heroes in a best-of-three series. Yes, you’ve heard that right, 30 heroes in a series. 

This wraps up our article on what is global ban and how it can affect the meta. What do you think about it? Should we see it in the upcoming MPL event?
