Kwangdong Freecs Announce cvMax As New League of Legends Coach
cvMax returns to the competitive scene with Kwangdong Freecs
by Tit Krajnik on September 22, 2022   

Korean League of Legends team Kwangdong Freecs appointed Kim “cvMax” Dae-ho as new head coach on Wednesday, September 21. The former DRX head coach will replace Jang “Cain” Nu-ri, who has spent over a year with the organization.

 

The coaching change follows Kwangong Freec’s disappointing performance in the 2022 season as the team failed to reach its goals. Even though Kwangdong Freecs reached spring playoffs, they’ve been unable to replicate that success in summer and ultimately failed to qualify for the 2022 LoL World Championship, with a seventh-place finish in LCK 2022 Summer.
 


Since the Korean LoL season has ended, Kwangdong Freecs have not announced any roster changes, but the organization believes that adding cvMax will help them perform better in 2023.

“We will show the fans that we can make a much better performance with cvMax from next season,” read the announcement.

CvMax joins Kwangdong Freecs as one of the most recognizable figures in the Korean LoL scene, mostly known for his success with Griffin from 2017 and 2019. As a head coach of Griffin, cvMax has helped the team climb from Challengers Korea to the finals of LCK 2019 Summer Playoffs in a span of a year. Moreover, cvMax led Griffin to LCK 2019 Spring and LCK 2019 Summer regular season titles and pocketed three runner-up finishes over his stint with the Korean organization.

After reaching LoL Worlds playoffs in 2020, cvMax joined DragonX, but was suspended shortly after due to the alleged assault and mental harassment when he was coaching Griffin. Notably, cvMax’s suspension lasted only until May 2021; however, he has not returned to the pro scene since.

The signing of a new head coach coincides with the start of the LoL offseason, which should lead to roster changes among Korean LoL teams. However, since some of the top squads still have LoL Worlds to attend, it’s unlikely we will see any big signings until the end of November.

While cvMax’s signing was confirmed, it’s unclear what will happen with Kwangdong Freecs’ former head coach Cain. The 25-year-old former pro player, who has previously coached CJ Entus, Cloud9, and Team Liquid, was cut from Kwangdong Freecs after 16 months and has yet to unveil his future plans.

Still, we can expect to hear more about where Cain will continue his coaching career soon, as many LCK teams look to make changes ahead of the 2023 season.
