BIG vs Rare Atom Preview and Predictions: BLAST Premier Spring European Showdown 2023

BIG vs Rare Atom will yield the third challenger for the Semifinals of this year’s BLAST Premier Spring European Showdown

It’s been a rough year for BIG, which isn’t much of a change for them from the previous year. Meanwhile, Rare Atom have recently come into the limelight and are looking to make themselves a mainstay at big events. If you’re looking to bet on CSGO or just want to know more about this matchup, here’s our preview.


The German side might not be in the best of shapes, but they’ve undoubtedly got the firepower they need to win this matchup — if they can keep their nerves in check. They've crashed out of almost every tournament they've participated in for quite a while, and no amount of shuffling players around seems to be helping. If things continue this way, they might just have to make some drastic roster changes.

Player To Watch


Rare Atom

The Chinese side has already caused an upset and shown it can stand tall against global giants, but the team will have to devise something special to beat BIG now that their cards are on the table. Their young players have a lot of passion and excellent aim, but they clearly lack the experience needed to be consistent on bigger stages, and their map pool could use a boost.
