Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Patch 1.7.20 has been officially released on the original server, just in time for the MPL playoffs in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

This patch features the Project NEXT visual upgrade to Lesley and Gusion, along with the game-changing magic sentry mechanic.

Heroes who are dominating the current meta such as Beatrix, Wanwan, and Natalia have been toned down. In turn, rarely picked heroes such as Minsitthar, Alice, and Valir have received small, but important buffs.

Here are all the buff, nerf, hero revamps, and battlefield adjustments in patch 1.7.20.
