I played SFIV for a few years and have just started playing ST.
Currently the main problem I have is with throws. They’re much faster than in IV and IV has many ways of escaping them whereas ST doesn’t.
The sense I have is that you have to be knowledgeable about the situations where throws happen in different matchups, otherwise you’re getting thrown. I say that because it seems like I’m seeing a lot of different setups where some move is done in a way that leaves a character suddenly near you, and then they throw (pretty much every time). Is that totally off base or is there some general tell for throws I’m missing? Do they mainly need to be predicted?
Also, what should I do if I know a throw is coming? It seems like there’s no escape a lot of times.
