Should he change his name to MVP or should the team go by Max?
July 24, 2017
Max was the MVP versus Samsung, going 3/2/20 in KDA Friday.
ANALYSIS
By scoring an average KDA ratio of 11.5 over the three games versus Samsung, it is safe to say Max was extremely efficient with his life over the course of the series. He showed the power of Janna in Game 1 as the champion moves more and more into the meta. He used her shield perfectly during important fights and also used her Howling Gale ability to provide peel when MaHa was in trouble. As good as his Janna was, he was simply a treat to watch on Thresh. His pedigree on the champion is well known and he did not disappoint as he landed multiple flash hooks throughout the game to secure picks that punished Samsung for any bit of over extension.

Provides no spark from support position
June 17, 2017
Max limped his way to a 0/6/6 KDA in MVP's tough loss to Longzhu Gaming on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Max never really got his footing in this series on Saturday, which left the MVP bot lane without much help and ways to keep up with Longzhu. He had a couple nice Devours early on in Game 1, but as the game progressed, his impact was felt less and less. He tried to pick Blitzcrank in the second game of the series, but he was still unable to get much going. Max and MaHa definitely need to shore up their play in the bot lane if MVP hopes to turn things around as the split progresses.

Provides little support in loss
March 30, 2017
Max managed a 0/6/9 KDA in MVP's loss to Samsung on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Max was on Lulu in Game 1 and got off to a poor start when he was taken down for first death on MVP. His best play in the game came when he sneaked in for an Infernal Drake steal at 25 minutes to steal away Samsung's prize for winning a 3-for-1 fight. But that was about the only good thing he did, as he had no kills in the game. He did have a 71-percent kill participation, but they were picked apart as a team here in Game 1. He switched to Nami in Game 2 and had a much worse showing. He used Tidal Wave many times in the game, but it almost never did anything to benefit his team. This was mainly due to the fact that Samsung were just easily taking fight after fight, so this is not something that is solely put on Max.
Key Baron steal helps edge out KT
March 23, 2017
Max posted a 8/8/22 KDA in MVP's series win over KT Rolster on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Max seemed to always come up with the craziest of plays in this series that either threatened to change the game or downright rewrite the script of a game. In Game 1, he somehow got a Baron steal on a Thresh hook, but the buff didn't end up changing things much. Game 2 is where he completely changed things. Playing on Sion, he came up with a huge quadra kill at the 29-minute mark to change the outlook of the game and help push for a big win to force Game 3. Max chose Brand in Game 3, and while he didn't have any show-stopping moments like in the first two games, he was incredibly consistent to help his team get the win here. He got his first kill in a 4-for-0 his team picked up about 15 minutes in and it was nothing but smooth sailing for MVP from then on. Every member of the team was on point to contribute to this 37-minute, series-clinching win.
