Nubar “Maxlore” Sarafian had some of the biggest shoes to fill joining Misfits Gaming. Coming in to replace veteran jungler Byung-kwon "KaKAO" Lee, the outspoken Maxlore showed that his prior success on Team ROCCAT and Giants Gaming were no flukes. He played an instrumental role in leading Misfits to a surprising run at the 2017 World Championship, where they came within a game of taking down the legendary SK Telecom T1.
After their solid run at Worlds, Maxlore and Misfits turned their attention to the 2018 EU LCS Spring Split. While he performed admirably, Maxlore couldn’t quite get the new-look Misfits firing on all cylinders and they ended up having to watch the playoffs from the sidelines. He’ll be looking for redemption this summer as he and Misfits take aim at making the World Championship for the second year running.
