Hi, I was watching Yoda play a tournament match, and I noticed when he takes an opponent offstage he always jumps and forward throws. I feel like I have better luck with simply running offstage and down throwing. Is one flat out better than the other or are there situations that could call for both? There are a few factors that make this more complicated than simply testing which throw sends the opponent farther. I feel like by forward throwing it sends the opponent upward making it easier for them to DI up and not die, whereas downthrow sends them more horizontally. But I could be wrong. Also, does DK travel at a faster horizontal velocity by running offstage and falling or jumping offstage?
