There have been cases that the AI and random human opponents seem to jump out of super throws or just do other wacky shit to get out of them [Ryu’s hurricane kick, Ryo’s Flying Kick, Chun Li’s bird kick]. I’m like… wtf?! Even with Gief’s Lvl 3 FAB can sometimes be escaped from certain specials or other lvl 3’s.
Aside from super throws… special throws don’t get no love either. Vice’s Nailbomb only has 3 frames of start-up but you can’t even use that effectively against a waking up opponent. Same thing with Gief who has 0 frames in all of his special throws [minus the Running Bearhug/Atomic Suplex]. So what is this crap? Are super throws/special throws not reliable anymore? Cuz if Gief and Vice can have their throws escaped… then everyone is already in bad shape [like Yama and Maki… x_x feel sorry for them].
Right now I’m working on Zangief, Raiden and Vice in K-groove. I just had a sudden interest in grapplers… but noticed that my opponents been escaping their throws through random crap. Any help?
