Sasha ‘Scarlett‘ Hostyn is a Canadian Zerg player who is currently teamless.
Scarlett started to play StarCraft II in April 2011. She made her first steps in the competitive scene by participating in an online female-only tournament, the NESL Iron Lady, becoming champion of those cups twice in a row in autumn of 2011. Since then she has been a consistent presence among the StarCraft II pro scene.
Scarlett’s play style favors using Zerglings, Banelings and Mutalisks, though she has also displayed proficiency with Infestors, Brood Lords, and Ultralisks. She also was one of the first, if not the first, to use Infested Terrans to bait Widow Mine hits (against Mvp in her GSTL debut). Her play style’s defining feature, though, is her Creep spread, which has been spotlighted and can stretch to opposing bases by the time of a decisive engagement.
More recently Scarlett attempted to qualify for the 2016 SpoTV StarLeague Season 2 but was quickly sent home after facing off against tough match ups with INnoVation, Ryung, Zoun, herO, and Bomber. She then moved onto the 2016 WCS Circuit: Spring Championship with no less of a daunting match up against FireCake in the Ro32. Scarlett defeated FireCake in a very entertaining five game ZvZ series – but was removed from the tournament in Ro16 after facing Nerchio, losing 1-3.
