Denied: Team Secret declines ESL One Manila Invitation
After the recent announcement of Evil Geniuses about declining their invitation to ESL One, Team Secret joins them and has decided that they will not travel to Manila for the said event.
The list of teams not attending ESL One Manila is growing as Team Secret decided not to participate in the tournament on April. This came after ppd's announcement that Evil Geniuses will not be playing in the said event as well. This comes as a bad news for ESL as they will most likely lose audience as the interest of the public stows away from them due to the heavy fanbase of EG and Secret.
If ESL decides to push through with the tournament they will have to replace Secret and EG. The problem arises as no team will probably accept those invites since the Manila Major is just a month away from ESL One Manila hence the one month period should be alotted for training.
ESL One Manila LAN event will take place on the 23rd and 24th of April at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila where it will feature eight of the best teams in world fighting for the prize pool of $250,000.
