If you are looking at range issues can you check plant white reach too? If she's lifted by kraken into the middle of a cramped enemy group she won't hit anyone.
Edit: Hadn't checked video so shame on me. Still genie does tend to miss those close to him. Not surprised the bugged genie doesn't hit Mega at that range but wonder why he faces that direction at all. He often can't fight back vs Ninja because he's just too close.
