Skills increasing order of Max
Passive: Static Shock
All Max damage causes the target to fall into Charge, taking 30 (+4 per level) (+0.18 AD) true damage per second for 3 seconds. During this time, the victim’s recovery is reduced by 25%.
Skill 1: Bionic Blender
He stretches out his arms and spins to attack nearby enemies, dealing 300/360/420/480/540/600 (+0.9 Attack Attack) physical damage. Each hit victim gives him a 10% movement speed, up to 30% for 4 seconds.
Skill 2: Smooth Moves
He leaps over the target and electrocutes the victim briefly, and he creates himself an electromagnetic shield that increases immunity by 15% for 3 seconds. The move can be launched again after 4s.
Skill 3: Liftoff
He activates his radar to scan enemies, detecting all enemy heroes and interrupting their recall. Activate a second time to target an enemy hero, then he takes off and flies to attack the victim, dealing 600/800/1000 (+1.0 physical attack) physical damage with repelling effect.
After landing, Max receives an electromagnetic shield that increases immunity and 30% of effect resistance and creates an area of Charge that causes nearby enemies to continuously suffer this state. During the flight he can be activated again to land, still enjoying the electromagnetic shield.

How to play Max
At the beginning of the game, you raise Skill 1 for Max and focus on clearing the creeps as quickly as possible during this time.
Please pay attention to the time and judge the direction of the enemy jungle, about 1 minute – 1 minute 30 maybe the enemy jungle will visit you. On the other hand, when you see that your jungle moves to support, you should act weak, lure the enemy to rise up to create a premise for your jungle to approach and attack.
When you reach level 4, you can use your ultimate to support Dragon lane ganking or weak enemy lanes.
Mid and late game
From mid to late game was the time when Max was most tough with the number of items he carried. Along with the ability to capture single targets with his ultimate, he will breakdown all enemy attack plans. Take advantage of this to move split push and use your ultimate to teamfight with your teammates.
His skills have a fast cooldown, so you need to pay attention to how you move in combat, avoid being spilled by heroes.
Towards the late game, you should consider split pushes and focusing with your teammates to attack your target. If you choose to split push, pay attention to the map and support your teammates in time to win the fight, and win the game.
