his throw is amazing because he can combo from anywhere thanks to his full screen OTG, and also you can tag combo, negating throw scaling, when near a corner

Not everyone's grab range is the same.

Characters like Ammy, Magneto, Akuma, Nova have bigger grab ranges than others.

The other thing is how good is their jumping H. If it is their universal aerial attack ... then they will be option selecting air grab which will net them more air grabs.


Wrong, every character has the same grab range.


Not true at all. On SRK.com for vanilla people posted character throw ranges for vanilla and there were at least 5 different range categories.

Ground throw range is different also. For example Hulk gets the most ground throws because he is mashing H anyways and because his throw is bigger than almost anyone else's. In a throw tech situation Hulk can just keep mashing H as long as he wants, eventually he'll get into a range where only he can throw or get so far back that the other person's throw will be outranged and his super armor will beat their H move.

Obviously grab ranges would have to be different because they're usually initiated when character models are overlapping.

I know by personal experience that Wright's throw range is HUGE.

Anyone who plays this game with any seriousness should know that just from experience that certain characters can grab you out of ranges others do not.

So,you see nothing wrong with a throw that practically tucks and wraps you in?
And while you're catching some "Z"s,Nova can come in as swiftly as the wind and wakes you up?

One of the most rage-worthy things in this game,aside from the infamous "FOOT DIVE!", is this....

You deal with it,though.

Lmao he's one of my best characters and all of my friend hate his grab and in turn him. They just don't know how to stop this reset I do. And from there reactions I have to agree its pretty rage inducing. He def seems to have a larger grab range than most of the roster.

The magical thing about Nova's grab range is that he can grab you even if both characters aren't overlapping at all. Quite humorous.*

* Cause I play Nova.
