The MPL PH Season 7 Week 5 has concluded with Blacklist International facing its first loss against last year’s defending champions Bren Esports. Aura PH ascended back to its first position in Group A after losing its position to Work Auster Force at the end of Week 4. In Group B, Blacklist International, even after suffering a loss, still remains in the top position. As we move into week 6 of the game, the performance of Cignal Ultra continues to lag behind as they still are yet to win a single match.
The current leaders in Group A seem to be juggling their positions with each other, as Aura PH and Work Auster Force continue to perform exceptionally well. After the end of Week 5, Aura PH secured first place on the table after beating Bren Esports and Nexplay Esports. Following them is Work Auster Force, who also secured a victory against Execration in Week 5 and can still grab a leading position in Group A after Week 6 if they win both their games. Last year’s champion Bren Esports and Onic PH are tied up with 15 points each, at the 3rd and 4th place in the Group Stage table. Meanwhile, Cignal Ultra resides on the bottom of Group A with 0 wins heading into Week 6.
