I think you're confusing Syndicate robots with the special black robots, they are not part of the Syndicate faction. The Vanguard Mesmer isn't derived from the Mk2 variant either so it doesn't make sense to compare their bonuses.
Note : You do buy the Vanguard Mesmer from the Syndicate shop; do you not? Please pardon the confusion I have led you to believe I had. :B
Anyhow Sir Dev Zoom, what is the Vanguard Mesmer derived from? Is it basically a Mk1 of the Vanguard Mesmer series? So, I could hope to find an CT or purchase an Mk2 variant from the Syndicate shop at a later date for like 10b and 500k - 1m tokens?
It's all about goals right?
Correct me if I am wrong Sir, would it be safe to assume you would need higher skill level to pilot an Elite Robot vs an Mk2?
I find it difficult to believe that the Vanguard Mesmer (an Elite robot) would have the virtually the same base stats as both the Mesmer Mk1 and Mk2's, though you indicated the Vanguard is not Derived from the Mk2 variant ... therein lies my issue.
They both weigh 5,610 kg more than the Mk1 variant, yet go the same speed ... not complaining, but I think that was overlooked. Besides a little more CPU +30, Reactor +100, Masking +40 and Detection +40, Locking Range +50m ... the only bonus's worthwhile are the Optimal Range and Hit Dispersion ... (I believe only a fool would use it in PvP ... or someone very brave and possibly arrogant) ... so the other bonus's are just ... odd to me.
One more thing ... Is it possible to paint the WHOLE robot Black? It was an valiant effort ... but it could use an improvement.
Btw, the Mesmer Mk1 and Mk2 both state Turret falloff while the Vanguard Mesmer states Falloff modifier ... I know it's the same thing ... just figured it was intended to be the same as the Mesmer Mk1 and Mk2 varieties
I know you're a busy man, so thank you for your time.
