Scarlett: I´m prepared for the upcoming challenges!
Scarlett, who continues living in Korea after her vacation to experience the best possible training, provides us with interesting insight into her current situation.
On Saturday, August 26, she will be going into the offline finals of the “2018 Master’s Coliseum” in Shanghai. The event is being organized by the “SC2Boys” or “Starcraft Old Boys”, a group of renowned Chinese commentators who have worked on all big international SC2 events like IEM or DreamHack in recent years.
The name of this group is a reference to an old Chinese song, which serves to express their love for Starcraft and the dreams of their youth. A certain line in this song, named “Old Boys)”, gives it all away: “The men have grown up, so they are old. But they still want to achieve their ambition or dreams, like boys.”
Because of this, the tournament is a community event through and through and the star players are eager to participate in it. So it is no surprise that the participants list consists of the crème de la crème of Starcraft. Hailing from Korea, “ByuN”, “Dark”, “Trap”, “Zest” and “soO“ as well as Chinese players Cyan and Sikly have qualified themselves for the event. Korean player “INovation”, Chinese player “Time”, US-American player “Neeb” and of course our Canadian Queen of Blades “Scarlett” have been honored with invitations to the tournament.
From August 25 to 26, the four best from the previous qualifications will join the invited players for a single-elimination bracket and will fight for the title, as well as a prize pool of 180,000 CNY, which are roughly 23,000 Euros.
Scarlett will be going on against her American colleague “Neeb” on Saturday, August 25, at 11 CEST and you will be able to watch her over on twitch.
We will keep you informed, since right after the event Scarlett will continue with the NA Qualifier for WCS Montreal 2018!
