Evil Geniuses have declined their invite to ESL One Manila, according to a tweet from the team's captain, Peter "ppd" Dager, Monday.

The news comes not long after EG accepted their invite to compete in the Dota Pit 4 LAN Finals, which is set to take place March 19-20 at the Seater Spaladium in Split, Croatia.

Details on ESL One Manila have yet to be revealed, such as team invites or tournament format. The previous ESL One event, ESL One New York 2015 featured four invited teams, one qualifier team each from Europe, Southeast Asia, America and China, and a single elimination bracket.

ESL One Manila will run from April 23-24 in Manila, Philippines.
