Currently, he is the mastermind behind the fighting game channel Maximilian Dood and another channel called YoVideogames. Max is also very popular on video on the Twitch platform, where he has over 500,000 followers.

To Max’s credit is also his work for “Killer Instinct” of Iron Galaxy, where he worked as a video editor for promotional material, character trailers, and the story mode of Seasons 2 & 3.
The YouTuber’s commentary on the online games in MvC3 was so good that he got involved in producing content for twitch.tv and Yo! video games. It was in 2012 when Maximilian Dood uploaded his first video of the Assist Me! series. In the video, he discussed in detail the core elements of the framework, tactical features, as well as demonstrations and strategies that are key to playing the game.
