You can't really abort, you can only hope their ki runs out before they complete the throw.

To actually take advantage of this, hold down left click and jump.

But since the team changed throw, it's near impossible to avoid a throw. Meaning power to the n00bs.

I've heard that holding down the left mouse button after the throw is initiated is the only way to hope to break out of it. However, being that throws require a RIDICULOUS amount of Ki, you probably won't get thrown very often unless it's later on in a round and/or you're playing against bots. In my opinion, it uses too much Ki to be a worthwhile maneuver.

thats why i only use it when nessicary just a quick throw so i can charge up or if i have enough throw them away then blaster there ass before they can recover other then that its useless and n00bs don't aways use it right (thank god) but it is really annoying when a pro or some one really good uses it to make u roll along the ground and continuesly hit u over and over again

Wasting your ki to abour getting thowed is not worth it. The worst you can get from throwing is getting slammed into a wall and getting kiblobed, but you can jump off the wall the instant you fall on it so no harm :)

No, the worst with being thrown is NOT kiblobs! I know a technique that allows you to kill a person easily just by throwing!

No.. Worse.. Almost the same, you throw them into the roof and they are gone, long gone the minute you do it.
