So wait... Seth's s.HP is anti-air now?

I mean his standing long arms. I was playing a RYU and he kept jumping outside Seth’s long arm range. Out of the blue I catch him with it in the air as he was late trying to jump over my SB. Since then I have been using s.HP god-like, like Sagat’s s.HK. WTF?!! I don’t recall ever doing this in Vanilla! This is rape to me! How could I have missed this? Please tell me this is something new guys!

And you had to make a whole new thread?
