As Galaxy Racer announced in a tweet, the event will be covered by a "star-studded English broadcast lineup".

Most of these names are familiar when it comes to covering the upper echelons of competitive Dota 2. However, N0tail, two-time TI champion, and Resolut1on, TI6 runner-up, stand out because they have primarily been engaged in playing over the last decade.
After OG was eliminated from TI10 (The International 10), N0tail and teammate Sébastien "Ceb" Debs were called on to serve as analysts during the grand final between Team Spirit and PSG.LGD. A highly analytical breakdown from the two players in the draft stage of the grand final was well received by the community. On the other hand, in 2021, Resolut1ion had also covered three TI10 qualifiers and TI10, as part of the Russian broadcast.
N0tail and Resolut1on are currently on a break from competitive Dota 2, but with them being two of the most seasoned Dota 2 players out there, they should have some interesting insights into the drafting and tactics used by the teams competing in the Gamers Galaxy: Dota 2 Invitational Series Dubai 2022. This event will take place on the freshly released patch 7.31, so teams are likely to showcase some new and fascinating strategies.
