On the back of its recent success at the DreamHack Valencia 2022, Rare Atom has decided to continue building on the momentum by hosting a bootcamp in Serbia, Europe. The team plans on practicing there and have even requested all tournament organizers to consider sending them an invite for any minor competitions being held in the region.

The CS:GO community was taken by surprise following Rare Atom's semi-final finish, as it handed consecutive defeats to HUMMER Esports and MIBR during the group stage in order to qualify for the playoffs before going down against Outsiders.

Rare Atom to bootcamp in Serbia and compete in European CS:GO tournaments

There is suddenly a burst of competition between the Asian CS:GO teams. TYLOO can no longer be considered as the unrivaled top dog with the arrival of competitors like IHC Esports from Mongolia and Rare Atom from China.

While IHC Esports became the first Mongolian team ever to represent Asia at a CS:GO Major by defeating TYLOO and Renegades, Rare Atom defeated international teams at a tier-two event and finished as one of the semifinalists.

Now, Rare Atom formerly known as ViCi Gaming is all set to go and practice against European and other international teams, in order to gain the much needed experience while also upgrading their overall skills.

For this, the entire CS:GO lineup is moving to Serbia where it will be bootcamping for the time being. Along with practice, the team's Malaysian AWPer, Andrew "kaze" Khong, has requested tournament organizers to help them out by sending any minor tournament invites their way.

Kaze statement on Rare Atom CS:GO team

This is not the first time that a team from Asia has gone to Europe to conduct a bootcamp. TYLOO has done it multiple times in the past and even D13 Esports, a Mongolian esports organization, reportedly relocated to Turkey for 12 months last year.
