Work Auster Force has not stepped into the MPL Philippines Season 7 arena yet but expectations are already soaring high for this rookie in the big league.

Well, that wasn't surprising especially with reigning MPL king and world champion Bren Esports paying respect to this team.

Two-time world title winning coach Francis "Duckeyyy" Glindro confidently picked Work to qualify for Season 7 and join them in Moonton's professional league.

And Work did not let Duckeyyy down as it utterly crushed the opposition in the Main Qualifiers held back in January.

Marksman/assassin Daniel "Chuuu" Chu and the crew never dropped a single game in three upper bracket series, taking 2-0 sweep over Laus Playbook Esports, Season 1 champion team Aether Main and Season 3 winning organization ArkAngel in the winners' finals.

Chuuu's stellar performance would not be possible if not for the equally brilliant showings from his teammates captain-tank Dylan "Unravel" Catipon, Clarense "Kousei" Camilo (side laner), Frediemar "3MarTzy" Serafico (offlaner), Patrick "rTzy" Grecia (mage/support) and Thom "Moht" Bernardo (mage/support) with coach Laurence "Lift" Ruiz.

Bren's captain-mage/support Angelo "Phewww" Arcangel, CJ "Ribo" Ribo and even M2 Grand Finals MVP Karl "KarlTzy" Nepomuceno see Work as a serious contender in the upcoming season.

Pheww even said once that Work can stand toe-to-toe with Bren as they have witnessed firsthand the MPL newcomer's strength during their scrims.

Interestingly, Work is in Group A with Bren along with two-time MPL winner Aura PH (formerly Sunsparks), twice runner-up Onic PH and Cignal Ultra.

With such strong opponents right in the group stage, will Work live up to the hype?
