Scarlett wins Red Bull Detroit Qualifier!
Continuing her impressive streak of recent results, Sasha 'Acer | Scarlett' Hostyn pulled off a flawless run in the Red Bull Battlegrounds: Detroit qualifier, finishing with a perfect 5-0 record after defeating Evil Geniuses' Suppy in the final round. Scarlett managed this feat without dropping a single map to any of her opponents. The qualifier was open only to citizens of the US, Canada, or Mexico.
RBBG: Detroit is an open tournament with room for up to 128 competitors, so this victory doesn't assure Scarlett of anything other than inclusion in the tournament (and all of her expenses to attend covered by Red Bull!). The Detroit stop in this year's Red Bull tournament series runs August 22 to 24. Player registrations are open, but a list of notable participants is not yet available at this time.
Historically, Scarlett has shown herself capable of deep runs at Red Bull events, with a top four finish in last year's New York final, and winning the RBBG: North America tournament (with its unique 'number of lives remaining' format) earlier this summer.
Defeating all comers without a single map being taken off her in this qualifier is another excellent addition to that resumé! If you missed the action, check out the VODs here on Twitch!
Tune in starting August 22 on the official Red Bull stream to catch all of the action, and good luck to Sasha 'Acer | Scarlett' Hostyn in the tournament!
