The best part is, I'm hearing these in Nyotengu's voice lmao
I put myself on here because I keep accidentally pressing taunt instead of P+K, clap 4 moostard who lost a win to diego mcbloodytorso (then i had some chips and put extra salt on them which i never do )
The damage is lower in open space actually, the air throw is more damage I think according to Matt. It's just that KP into KK (the KK part specifically) has huge knockback which = 10+ more points of damage if it hits a wall. Though mostly for knockback wall purposes, i'm probably using KP > KK more in a place full of breakables, environmental hazards, really small stages, or really tight spaces in a stage section.
