Mobile Legends: Movement Wheel Setup

What’s the purpose of this option? What happens if fixed position is off or on?

The first time I read it from the patch mail, I didn’t understand what it really does because ML didn’t explain further. They just gave a short description which was a bit of a challenge.

I thought it’s going to be a helpful feature especially for those who are using traditional smartphones or phablets, and it has something to do with the movement wheel in-game which is by default located at the lower-left corner. Some would refer to it as the joystick.

Upon testing, the option has really something to do with the controller.

If fixed position is set to ON, the joystick’s position at the left side is fixed and it won’t budge, though a player can press outside [near the edge of the wheel] and maneuver a character.

If set to OFF, a player can press anywhere within or on the joystick’s surrounding [near the edge of the wheel], hold-and-drag upper-right, left, right, circular, or lower-left, and the joystick will follow or adjust accordingly from its fixed position. A player may maneuver its hero moving forward on its new position after doing so. It will quickly go back to its original position once hold is released.

I find it helpful since I have a long thumb which is struggling pressing on my device when the movement controller is at its fixed position [near the edge]. Hence, my friends laugh at me when they saw my thumb bended.

Enabling the option somehow eases the struggle which is also a good alternative while transitioning to a bigger screen.

The joystick can’t go as far as the middle.


Mobile Legends: The Green Diamond Icon

Ever wonder what the green icon is for on the hero avatar? The one at the upper-left corner in a match-up game? See screenshot above.

I noticed that the icon is on and off, but I don’t really have an idea what it is for.

After a few observations and tests, it appears that it indicates the availability of the ultimate or third skill of a hero. Feel free to correct folks!

The green disappears once a hero casts his ultimate.


Mobile Legends: Retrieving Lost Account

First, let me clarify that this is not a step-by-step guide on how to retrieve a lost account in Mobile Legends.

Resetting is Painful

My Android phone suddenly became inoperable recently, and I resorted to resetting it. I had to reinstall all third-party apps including ML. Everything went smoothly until the game asked me to create a username.

I was skeptical of the instructions. Still, I patiently followed them and the tutorial on-screen. I thought that the application would automatically load my original account, but I was wrong.

I completed the tedious tutorial, and what I got was a new account.

Due to my frustration, I searched everywhere in the FAQ section for a solution. I came across a relevant article, but the last instruction was to contact customer service. I refused to do it because of the numerous feedback, mostly negative ones, I’ve read online.

I then looked for an alternative solution until I discovered the “Switch account” button in the Account Settings tab.

I pressed that button, and it gave me options; Google Play, Facebook, VK, and Moonton, where I could have possibly linked my account.

I’m clueless, but I chose Facebook, then signed in on the next page.

The game showed a matched account which I “thought” was correct (not sure of the ID number though), so I pressed the next button. If my memory serves me right, it asked me to restart the app, and voila! My original account is back.

P.S. I just realized how vital binding an account is.
