Max "MaxPax" C. is a Danish Protoss player who is currently playing for PSISTORM Gaming.

Playstyle[edit]

MaxPax was first known for his very aggressive builds and playstyle. The most notable build being the MaxPax build depicted by Beastyqt[1]and used for the first time in a pro-match by PartinG in GSL.

He was also known for being one of the best proxy Void Ray player, using it multiple times to defeat top Terran players such as Clem and HeRoMaRinE.

Later his play style became more macro oriented, relying on his micro and original builds such as the Tempest opening in PvZ.

Biography[edit]

MaxPax started playing StarCraft II at the age of 8.

Legacy of the Void[edit]

2019[edit]

Despite having no notable results in 2019, MaxPax became somewhat well known among the community after Beastyqt presented the MaxPax build on his YouTube channel. The build consists of proxying the first gate to pressure the Terran natural expansion with two Zealots followed by one or more Stalkers.

Two weeks after that PartinG used his build in an official GSL match vs GuMiho and talked about it in his post-match interview.[2]

First steps in the pro-scene[edit]

2020[edit]

MaxPax participated for the first time in an official circuit event (other than the ESL Open Cups) with the DH 2020 Fall Europe. He qualified to the main event after winning the first 2020 Fall EU Qualifier bracket without dropping a map, defeating ShaDoWn and SKillous on his way. However, he did not manage to get out of the group stage and ended up in 6th place in his group.

His next participation was in the 2020 DH Winter Europe. He also qualified by winning the first 2020 Winter EU Qualifier, defeating Rail, Guru and Rattata. Again he failed to get out of the group stage and ended up in 7th place in his group.

At the end of the year, he also managed to qualify to the TSL 6 main event but lost to TY in the first match with a 1-3 score. Other than official circuit events, he also started to show good performances against top players and was known as one of the best and more aggressive Protoss players in Europe.

He ended the year in 24th place of the EU ESL Pro Tour circuit.

2021[edit]

In 2021, MaxPax participated in 2021 DH Summer Europe. This time he survived the group stage and placed 2nd (his only loss being against HeRoMaRinE). In the playoffs he lost 0-3 to Serral in the first round and then won vs PtitDrogo (3-1) before being eliminated by Elazer in a close series (3-2), ending in the top 8 players in Europe.

In the 2021 DH Fall Europe he also placed 2nd in his group (losing to Clem only). During the playoffs, he performed better than his last season as he placed 4th. After losing again against Serral in the first round of the winner bracket (1-3), he then won vs uThermal (3-1), SKillous (3-2) and MarineLorD (3-1) in the lower bracket before being stopped by Clem(the eventual champion). His placement granted him a DH Season Finals slot.

In his first DH Season Finals appearance, he won his first group match against Clem but then lost to Bunny and his rematch against Clem. He placed 3rd in his group and thus failed to qualify for the playoffs.

During the 2021 DH Winter Europe he placed 3rd in his group and once again qualified to the playoffs. This time, however, he started in the loser bracket and won against Harstem (3-1), Elazer (3-2) and Denver (3-1) before losing to MarineLorD (3-2) to end in the 5th-6th slot.

Compared to former years MaxPax has shown more consistent performances in other events like NexT and Asus ROG placing between 16th and 4th place.

Trivia[edit]

  • Didn't appear at pro level until he became well known for inventing a PvT build, which was first made public by Beastyqt and was used in a pro match by PartinG in GSL.
  • Many fans and community members draw parallels between MaxPax in 2020 and Reynor and Clem in 2018, comparing him to those young powerhouses of the other two races.
  • Despite being a recurring player in several high tier events, it's still publicly unknown what he looks like. Since he started to compete, he has consistently refused to show his face.
  • On April 15, 2023 he completed a 15-0 perfect streak in the OSC King of the Hill Weekly #130 tournament.
