Epic Staff Battle rules allow the professional CS:GO players to participate in the Dota 2 show-matches — and vice versa. Ex-pros and coaching staff are also allowed to take part. Thanks to this ruleset, the viewers will get a rare chance to see the star players like NAVI’s Alexandr “s1mple” Kostylev and Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhailov, forZe’s coach Sergey “lmbt” Bezhanov and NAVI’s journalist Yana “b2ru” Khimchenko battle it out on Dota 2’s field of fray. The full list of participants will be revealed shortly before the competition start.

The event’s base prize pool is $5000. The funds will be directed towards the charity organization of the winner’s choosing. Epic Staff Battle prize pool can be increased via donations by commercial companies that would like to have their staff and/or affiliated streamers to participate in the show-matches.
