The all-out war for the last two spots in the MPL Philippines Season 7 looms as former champions Aether Main of Akosi Dogie and ArkAngel along with six other teams see action in the Main Qualifiers set this coming weekend, Jan. 30-31. 

The eight teams survived the grueling Group Qualifiers that featured an unprecedented 3,040 squads across the country–a figure that easily smashed the over 1,000 teams that registered for the qualifiers in Season 6.

Inaugural MPL champion Aether Main is primed for a comeback in Moonton’s  premier professional league with founding members Akosi Dogie and Yuji “Yuji” Aizawa leading the stack that also has former Execration sidelaner Jeff “S4gitnu” Subang. 

They will go up against ULVL, a former MPL member as well, in the first round of the double-elimination qualifiers. 

Season 3 winner ArkAngel also seeks to take a flight back to the MPL as it aims for a strong takeoff against Reech Apex in the opening round. 

The Nationals member Laus Auto Group Playbook Esports, under the watch of ArkAngel’s champion coach Brian “Panda” Lim, will square off against World Challenger to open its campaign. 

Empire Monarch, which eliminated Team Payaman featuring Reiniel “HONDA BEAST” Encisa and other ex-Blacklist International players, will start its qualifying bid versus GREY led by a top global player. 

The two qualifying winners will join newly-crowned M2 world champion and reigning MPL king Bren Esports, Smart Omega, Execration, Onic PH, Aura PH, Blacklist International, Nexplay Solid and Cignal Ultra in the Season 7 main tournament. 

The qualified teams will get the spots left by Season 6 bottom finishers BNK Blu Fire and BSB.
