This past weekend eight elite Starcraft 2 players from around the world came together at New York City’s Hammerstein ballroom to battle of $50,000 in cash and prizes in Red Bull Battle Grounds.

2012 world champion PartingG took the prize but not without a fight from fan favorite Scarlett and six other pro eSports athletes.

Bomber, the favorite coming into the tournament, couldn’t pull off the comeback he so wanted after getting the number two slot last year. Check out his road to the competition here.
