Raw launching seems to be a under utilized tactic. I think of it as the low parry of SFxT, or the general mind frame of the tool, where you are able to negate the way your opponent wants to attack and forces them to switch their play style in a way they are not comofrtable with. Now some might say why do this when I can do something easier like boost combo with very little risk and high reward? Well because being able to take away options is well worth the risk and has bigger rewards. Now the launcher while a good offensive tool, has it’s draw backs, like very unsafe on block and can be baited. While it may not be the end all be all mechanic in sfxt, I believe it has enough power to sway the way the neutral game is played and how options are maximized. I hope this kind of opens up some discussion on this tool, and see what others think.
