He is saying the client labels him as melee. The projectile thing is an important difference. Projectiles don't deal damage until it moves from the person to the target meaning there is a delay in the damage from animation to contact. Melee attacks damage happen practically instantly.
Thresh it seems operates as if he is melee even though the target is further away.
Much like when Kayle activates her abolity.
