Best Mobile Legends Players: The Top 10 ML Pro Players


On this page, we will be exploring some of the best Mobile Legends players who have made a name for themselves in the game. Anyone with a working phone and internet can download and play Mobile Legends: Bang Bang at will. This is the single biggest advantage Mobile Legends has over PC MOBA titles like Dota 2 and League of Legends—it’s portable.

What does this mean?

Gamers riding a car, waiting in line, and lying in bed can all tap into the game and rank up (if they’re any good), which makes the competition dense. Everyone’s trying to prove something all the time.

But just who among the millions of these challengers stands at the very top?

Top 10 Best Mobile Legends Players List

  1. Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno
  2. Danerie “Wise” Rosario
  3. Kiel “Oheb” Soriano
  4. Jonmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna
  5. Rivaldi “R7” Fatah
  6. Albert “Alberttt” Iskandar
  7. Calvin “VYN
  8. Michael “MobaZane” Cosgun
  9. Pyae “JustiN” Khant
  10.  Muhammad “Garyy” Syafizan

The last two MPLs in Malaysia (Season 9 and 10) both saw 18-year-old jungler Muhammad “Garyy” Syafizan in action—first, wearing the Orange Esports jersey, next wearing the Team HAQ jersey. The latter was the same jersey he wore at the recent M4 World Championship 3 months later, where the team earned a seed at the upper bracket and nearly dropped future champions ECHO (2-3).

In the two games Team HAQ won against the Filipino heavyweight, Garyy put a performance and claimed the MVP. For someone who’s only been in the league for a little over 1 and a half years, putting on an amazing show while facing some of the greatest Mobile Legends players in the world promised a bright future.

Garyy and Team HAQ didn’t fare well in the lower bracket, but it’s intriguing to imagine how things would have been different if they managed to win just one more game.

9. JustiN

Pyae “JustiN” Khant played in 4 out of 5 Myanmar MPLs (Season 2 to 5) without finishing lower than 3rd place. What’s more impressive? JustiN did this with 3 different Burmese esports orgs. In Falcon Esports (his 4th team), alongside the proclaimed best tank user in Myanmar Min “Naomi” Ko, JustiN finally made his breakthrough.

That breakthrough was the M4 World Championship. During the group stage, JustiN helped Falcon level with the safest bet Blacklist International, which housed 3 of the best Mobile Legends players on this list.

The team didn’t put up the same fight against ONIC soon after, although they nearly eliminated Indonesian favorite RRQ Hoshi in the lower bracket (2-3).

We’re expecting more good things from the mid laner.

8. MobaZane

Michael “MobaZane” Cosgun and his company at The Valley were literally North America’s last hope on ML’s international competitive stage. The region has more than enough representatives in Riot games like League of Legends and Valorant, but ML remains to be monopolized by the East.

That’s why when the 21-year-old American jungler managed to lead BTK (his former team) to as far as 3rd place in the M3 World Championship in 2021, he came close to making the event one of the most memorable Mobile Legends tournaments of all time. He surely came close to writing history.

For a man on a heavy mission, we still like to give MobaZane and The Valley credit for reaching the quarterfinals of the lower bracket in M4. It will be quite a story when the West finally brings home a World Championship. Perhaps MobaZane will be there when it happens.

7. VYN

It’s normally hard for tank users to earn recognition. Supporting roles often have to make flashy plays just to be included in a highlight, so much so that personal stats are overlooked. Calvin “VYN,” one of the top Mobile Legends players in the entire ML pro scene to ever appear in all M World Championships, makes it easy by being good at making plays and maintaining good numbers.

In the M4 World championship alone, VYN received the most damage. Meanwhile, in the MPL Indonesia Season 10, he had the most assists. In M1, M2, and M4, RRQ—led by its oldest member—finished no lower than 3rd place, showcasing Indonesian ML superiority.

How big a splash can the 22-year-old tank and acting in-game leader make in the next World Championship?

6. Alberttt

Albert “Alberttt” Iskandar is arguably the best jungler in Indonesia. He has a deep repertoire of heroes and has a knack for securing and stealing Lords—a great package you won’t capriciously expect from a 19-year-old playing at the highest echelon of ML. He picks Fanny, Ling, and Lancelot, which are among the most complex heroes to master.

Alberttt is the youngest player in RRQ and the youngest in the team to become a two-time MPL Indonesia champion (Season 6 and Season 9). With over 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube, he’s also among the youngest, most famous MLBB players on earth.

5. R7

Speaking of subscribers and fame, Rivaldi “R7” Fatah has 2.5 million on YouTube. But the 24-year-old EXP laner’s panache and overall showmanship (especially when playing persnickety heroes like Chou), is just the tip of the iceberg.

A former Dota 2 pro player, R7 transitioned to ML in 2019 and immediately caught fire. He appeared in the grand finals of MPL Indonesia 6 times, the most appearances in the Indonesian ML league (along with teammate VYN). He won half of them.

4. OhMyV33NUS

Jonmar “OhMyV33NUS” Villaluna, the team captain of Blacklist International (one of the best Mobile Legends teams in play), has done something that most leading figures in ML will find hard to emulate: he has brought his team—not once but twice—to the grand final of the World Championship, leaving as the runner-up in one (M4) and winning the whole event in another (M3).

Out of the 4 most recent MPL seasons in the Philippines, OhMy33NUS won 3. Not to mention, ONIC was the back-to-back runner-up in MPL PH Season 4 and 5 when he was there calling the shots.

Looking at the stats, it becomes obvious why OhMyV33NUS is such a strong backbone. For instance, the 28-year-old had the most assists in the MPL Philippines Season 10 and the M3 World Championship.

It’s like Lady Luck is in the house whenever OhMyV33NUS is in the house.

3. Oheb

There isn’t a more iconic marksman in the Philippines than 18-year-old Kiel “Oheb” Soriano. Thanks to his entertaining Beatrix 1-taps, they call him the “Filipino Sniper,” which is a fitting epithet for someone who had the most kills in the M3 World Championship and someone who became the champion and MVP of said event.

A year later, Oheb—along with the same Blacklist International roster—would reach the M4 World Championship grand final to face ECHO. They came close to making it as the back-to-back World Championship winners.

2. Wise

Picking only a total of 7 heroes in M4, it’s surprising how much Danerie “Wise” Rosario contributed to Blacklist International’s solid run in the event. For one, they didn’t fall off the upper bracket from start to finish, beating RRQ Hoshi (3-2) at the semifinals and then, shortly after, beating ECHO themselves at the final (3-2).

Why they got stomped in the grand final, we don’t know. Maybe because it was OhMyV33NUS’s Estes pick was shut down, maybe not. In any case, being a back-to-back MPL Philippine champion (Season 7 and Season 8) and a back-to-back M World Championship grand finalist (M3 and M4), Wise is definitely one of the top Mobile Legends players today.

1. KarlTzy

In light of the latest M4 World Championship results, it’s clearer now more than ever: Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno is not only one of the best mobile legends players in the world but also the most successful one in the entire ML competitive scene.

He’s also among the most versatile junglers in the league. In M4, he picked 12 heroes in total, including some unorthodox picks like Valentina and Chou (even Granger). And that was when the stakes couldn’t be higher.

At age 18, KarlTzy is the first and the youngest player to win 2 M World Championships (M2 and M4). This is so outrageous that his consistent performance in the MPL Philippines gets easily eclipsed. What makes it even more interesting is that he accomplished this with 2 completely different orgs (Bren Esports and ECHO). He was the only common link to both winning Mobile Legend’s most prestigious event.

Top Mobile Legends Players 2023 Update

There have been some roster shuffles since M4 ended on 15 January. The dream roster of Blacklist International, for one, has been pared down to two members. Meanwhile, RRQ Hoshi has benched R7. Over in NA, MobaZane has reverted to the BloodThirstyKings brand and is now working with a fresh team.

With the way things are shaping up, it seems the established order is bound for a transformation, which makes today the ideal time to consider joining a Mobile Legends betting site. Consider this question: “Will Blacklist International’s dynasty continue?” The betting odds will likely assume so, but the “underdogs” opposite them have a stronger chance of bringing outside bettors some serious profit.

In any case, the changes made on the organizational level will trickle down to the individual level. Who will rise and fall this season?
