The top eight teams from last season have been automatically invited for this season, and two new teams will be welcomed from the Qualifiers.
Bren Esports comes into Season 7 with high hopes, after bagging the Season 6 championship and the M2 World Championship. The golden team look to continue their dominance with no roster changes headed into the new season.
After falling short of a podium finish last season, Onic picked up two talented players in Hate and Kairi from Execration and Blacklist. With this young, new core, we can expect a new look for Onic as they aim to return to the Grand Finals stage.
The first back-to-back MPL Champions look to bounce back after a disappointing 5th-8th place finish last season. With their offseason pickups including names like Bennyqt and LordHadess, will they bag their third title this season?
One of the teams that went through a pretty big offseason overhaul, Cignal Ultra released LordHadess, Yebmaester and tsujin and picked up AQUA, Janus, and Kekedot. With a revitalized roster, Cignal Ultra continue to fight for another shot at the title.
Work Auster Force
The first team to qualify for Season 7, Work-Auster Force had an impressive performance in the Qualifiers, sweeping the competition, cruising their way through the Upper Bracket and into the major leagues. Only time will tell if they can go up against the biggest teams in the country.
The Tier One Entertainment-owned team let go of their core of Kairi, AQUA, and KIL LER in the offseason, vital pieces to their breakout success, but managed to sign the power duo of OhMyV33nus and Wise, and picked up free agent Oheb. Will this New Era Blacklist have what it takes to go the distance?
After a messy offseason that saw the departures of Bennyqt, Hate, and S4gitnu, the MPL veteran team look to finally take the throne and claim their crowns after picking up Kielvj and Renzio from Aura PH and signing free agent Kelra.
The Season 6 runner-ups could prove to be a problem once again this season, with their exceptionally strong roster staying intact. Armed with their deep playoff experience from last season, a solid M2 showing, and their proven history, Omega may just give the other MPL teams a run for their money.
Nexplay broke into the MPL with their bold and brash style in season 6, backed by the star power of the names involved with the team. After barely making it to the playoffs and dropping in the first round (to eventual champions Bren), the team underwent a pretty big overhaul, swapping out Chester, MB, and Jimnest for Exort, Jeymz, and LanceCy. Could this new-look NXP go further this season?
Laus Playbook Esports
Backed by Laus Auto Group and Playbook Esports, the team definitely has the backend support and esports experience that could be the game-changer. We’ll have to see in their first game this season this Saturday.
