They're buffs. It lets you do a throw mixup where if they DI for downthrow when you backthrow and vice versa you can follow up with a regrab or hit, but I'm not quite sure how long you can do it anymore given the increased kbg.

They're buffs from the Beta, but SLIGHT nerfs from the previous 3.5 version.

With the increase in KBG, tipper u-smash is no longer guaranteed at kill % against a lot of the characters where this used to be the case.

However at low % the "mixup" is still there and the throws are basically just like they were before with no hitlag multiplier.
