"Reduces high damage taken during siege mode to a maximum of 20% of your maximum health as damage"

huh? there's got to be a clearer way to write this description.

so if he has 1800 hp at base, any attack over 360 will be capped at 360?
& then if he takes 2 levels of pills, bringing his hp to 2088, any attack over 417 is capped at 417?

does this apply before or after Force Field (7, 14, 21% shield)?

It applies at the end of any dmg calculations.

Small thing to note about PCA that is largely unknown, it is the only upgrade in the game that scales inversely off of a level difference. Whereas most upgrades are strictly better when you have a higher level than your opponent, pussycat album gets worse. With only pussycat album purchase vs a clunk with just base explode:

-If your level 1 and the enemy clunk is level 3 you will negate 32.1% of the explode damage.
-If your level 3 and the enemy clunk is level 1 you will negate 23.7% of the explode damage.

As to whether it is worth buying, it's extremely situational and is worthless outside of those situations, but when it works it can turn around games. I would consider buying it if either there was something like a clunk/derpl who is two levels up on the enemy team, or if there were 2 nauts with those kind of burst skills on the enemy team. Even then, I would still buy the normal 21% shield first, and you can still consider other siege upgrades. The only time its a must buy to me is if there is 2-3 nauts it's good against on the enemy team and I'm behind in levels.

TL;DR It's really situational due to how it works, but it can be decent-good in those situations.

Very good changes to Max, you've taken modest compromise approach to balance many of his upgrades, which is probably the most reasonable thing to do.
