    Hey I was curious...could you explain a little more about what you meant about short range pokes not mattering in SFV? I feel like you really hit something that brings me close to an epiphany, but I think I need more info before I can really figure it out.

    Thanks

      It's not that long range limbs don't matter, it's that they seem to matter less both because of the nature of the game and because of counterpoking being so good.

      Add in some wiff buffering and long range limbs tend to get even worse.
      Basically it's much easier in sf5 to counter poke and to jum,over long ranged limbs. Combine that with the fact that most long range moves in the game aren't cancelable and therefor you don't get any extra damage from them, means they are even less powerful... in my mind at least.

      Take a game like ST where you have longer range limbs that cancel and combo into various specials and it makes sense that those ranged limbs are scarier since they effectively do more damage by being cancelable.
