You want a good GID setup? Walk up GID
One thing I realized while playing at EVO is just how strong a command grab character having the fastest walkspeed in the game is. I command throw more than any Vega I see now. I got people pretty consistently by staggering crouching jabs, stand strong, crouch jab > crouch strong blockstrings, low forwards or something else and then walking up to light or EX GID. Or connecting with a normal then dashing forward to GID. Everything looks like a frame trap until you’re watching the command grab animation. Find out how stubborn they are. People who want to mash on buttons you can stagger and shimmy to oblivion. When they realize that it’s not going to get them anywhere then you have your command grab. People want to start jumping? You’ll knock them out of the air. Then you probably could command grab them right there. People don’t like to jump after they get punished for jumping out of a command grab setup. If you walk forward while someone’s trying to cross you up and it whiffs, you can crouch jab to anti air them before they hit the ground, walk up, command grab.
Point blank low forward leaves you at the perfect range for light or EX, and also leads to a counter hit setup with a two-frame frame trap (crouching jab > stand strong). Anti-airing with Crouching Fierce often leaves them in range for it. You can always bust out a dash forward command grab after FBA if you train people to keep blocking afterwards.
Vega has a bunch of follow ups after command grab. I learned a lot from af0 and Flash. Once they block everything? Dash up command throw. It’s honestly not easy to react while you’re making a read at the same time.
It’s a good conditioning tool. I also tend to stay in Claw stance so it makes the mixups/rhythm that much harder to see. And just remember that you don’t need to GID every player. Some of them it just won’t work on. They’re buttonsy, their reactions are absolutely godlike. That’s okay though. It’s not like Vega can’t pressure them without it.
Vega really shouldn’t have this tool, but he does.
