Biography[]

2014 Season[]

Kim "cvMax" Dae-ho originally played for Samsung Galaxy Blue under the name Vision as a top lane substitute. He never played any games with the team and he left sometime in 2014 to join Anarchy.

2015 Season[]

cvMax joined Anarchy before the start of ITENJOY NLB Summer 2014 where they made it to the platinum league but lost in the second round 2-0 to Incredible Miracle 2. They played in Challenger Korea Spring 2015 Series 1 and won with a 3-2 victory over Winners. Anarchy didn't fare so well in the Challenger Korea Spring 2015 Series 2 where they lost 2-0 in the first round to Hungry. They still earned enough points to qualify for the Champions Summer 2015 Promotion where they qualified for SBENU Champions Summer 2015 after going 1-1 against Incredible Miracle and Winners. Ikssu joined the team just after the tournament to share the starting top lane position with cvMax. CvMax retired on July 24, 2015.

After his retirement, cvMax started streaming regularly in China. His stream gained popularity and people praised him for his aggressive carry playstyle.

2017 Season[]

He continued streaming until July, when he joined Griffin as a coach.

2018 Season[]

cvMax was promoted to head coach of Griffin in preparation for the new season. He was praised by many for his new and innovative strategies, leading the team to an undefeated CK Spring Season. He and the team went on to qualify for LCK Summer via the LCK Summer Promotion.

2019 Season[]

On September 25, Griffin announced that cvMax had been released from the team, not long before their participation in Worlds 2019.[22]

Suspension[]

Prior to cvMax's suspension, in October 2019, Riot launched an investigation into Griffin. During the investigation, they were notified that cvMax had taken physically and verbally violent measures during his time with the team. Riot investigated further, and following statements from witness(es), was able to identify that there was violence towards some of the players. As this is against LCK rules, Riot imposed an indefinite suspension on cvMax.[23] However, the suspension was withheld just over a week later, with Riot admitting shortcomings in the investigation procedure.[24]

Trivia[]

  • Despite being a substitute for Samsung Blue, he never played a single game on stage.
  • Is a huge fan of Slam Dunk and Batman.
