The more I play, the more I notice the lack of grabs from my opponents. They’ll come at me and I’ll block. Even if they’re real close and within optimal range for a grab, they choose to use a block string and reset the situation. Sometimes I’ll just grab them before they can start their combo.
Why is this?
Is it the contrast of damage to how easy a throw is to avoid? Are they afraid of eating a reversal once they stop their block string? Are they really hoping that I’ll drop my guard in the middle of their attacks? Is it just the people I play with?
Basically, there’s the topic. Throws are no doubt as awesome as they were in Super Turbo, but I find them to be a good tool simply because I can mix it up with them and it leaves my opponent on the ground. Am I not seeing the whole picture?
