Questions were raised as Team Secret were noticeably missing from the ESL One Birmingham 2018 direct invitations list. ESL Senior Vice President Ulrich Schulze himself went forward with an advice to not expect them at the qualifiers either, as the team declined the invite.

Holding the third place in Dota Pro Circuit standings with a considerable lead over other teams, Team Secret absence from a Western Major was a surprise. Their decline of the invite might've been the reason for invitation of Evil Geniuses. The team stands out in the invites as the only one to be placed low at DPC, recently falling below top-8 behind VGJ.Thunder after Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018.
