CC immunity anchor is nice if you really need to commit. Otherwise it's best to just ignore him and only engage if you catch him exiting siege (or he is alone and you can just burst him down).

if you can use anchor dive on him without suiciding (ie running into a nuke or a snare or his teammates) just do that and get out, maybe with an aa swing or two to help with the poke. derpls despise being poked

The general jist of the matchup is get CC immunity anchor if you struggling with the traps, try to poke him whenever you can and don't all in Derpl until you have your upgrades; the matchup gets a lot easier the later the game goes.

One small tip I can give is you can poolboy burst a sieged Derpl really damn fast lategame if you know what to do. Basically anchor in>poolboy anchor swing to start, then heres the clever bit, aim the anchor drop at derpl's feet. Basically since Derpl is CC immune, the anchor will instantly break allowing you to pick it up immediately and since you aimed it near the floor, you won't have to wait for the anchor to fall to the ground to pick it up so can pick it up near instantly. Ie the combo continues to anchor drop>poolboy ink>pickup anchor>poolboy anchor. The whole thing is doable within the time it takes to land 2 anchor autos ie about ~0.5sec, it's an insane amount of damage.

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.
