Rare Atom vs VERTEX Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Asia-Pacific RMR

The Asia-Pacific RMR for the BLAST.tv Paris Major continues with Rare Atom vs Vertex

The CSGO world became acquainted with Rare Atom when they beat — nay, thrashed — Team Liquid at ESL Pro League Season 17. The team stirred up high hopes, but those expectations have since turned into disappointment as, despite providing good fights to big teams, the Chinese side has been unable to replicate similar upsets. On the other hand, VERTEX are a well-known Australian side that’s still getting used to the big stage. If you’re about to indulge in some CSGO betting, here’s our preview of the match.

Rare Atom 

Despite mostly dominating their local scene, Rare Atom haven’t been able to do much damage at an international level. Their most recent foray came in the BLAST Premier: Spring European Showdown, where they did well against BIG but couldn’t close out the match.They’re a young team with plenty of talent, but it looks as though the squad needs to mature a lot more if they are to reach the big time.

Player To Watch



The Australian side has been giving local teams a run for their money, but this will be their first international event since the BLAST Premier: Fall American Showdown last year, where they fell in the first round to Brazilian side 00 Nation. Now they’ve got to face a resolute Rare Atom, and although they are decent on paper, it’s hard to pin down their chances as they remain a bit of an unknown quantity.
