The sword will not only be more useful, but his burning attack will be, since someone will get out of swoop once hit by a beam this can be helpful.

someone is swooping at you, and then you chunk burning attack at them, they stop swoop, and they are blind, rendering trunks a very useful melee character!

Now we won't have to have people complaining about burning attack needing to be a ball, you can have your accuracy, and then some!

I wondered when people were going to relize that :D. Now that swoop stops when you get hit by a beam Trunks will be much more useful... not that I don't use him anyways ;).

No thanks, I rather still complain about it not being a ball, because its not accurate to the show, and every other character's attacks are.

Will this be fixed in the future? Probably not :)

The burning attack MUST be made into a ball, It defeats the purpose of it all together, as long as its a beam you shouldnt even call it burning attack because it doesnt resemble it what so ever, its supposed to be a type of ball, just watch the episode when trunks defeats freeza, that will explain

If its gonna stay as a beam then congradulations, you just gave trunks a brand new attack, not burning attack because burning attack is in the shape of a ball, dont keep it as a beam because its VERY inaccurate towards dbz.:]

who cares? It's just one attack anyways, and please I don't want this going to a "should burning attack be a ball/beam" thread, please stay on topic.

Someone just needs to make a sprite for the burning attack trail so it looks invisible; thus you have a show-accurate burning attack.

anyways, you are right magus that trunks might be an enormous well playable melee fighter, the only thing that concerns me about being knocked out of melee by a beam, what if you are 10 times stronger than the other, the other shoots a very low charged generic beam it hits you, you lose 1 health but more important are you then still out of melee???Or needs the attacks a certain strenght to be able to get someone out of melee cuz that would be more reasonable IMHO...

offtopic: the burning attack in ESF is also a ball in some ways, it is just a ball at the front with a little trail behind it...

trunks will probably be a bit better, but it is about time!
also, i think burning attack should be a ball, but isnt it out of the movie anyway? and i though ESF was only on DBZ series

haha! magus strikes back with his brain!
not many people would of though of that, but agree, you right, this will make trunks quite a player since he's based on meelee tactics :)

ps: im gonna play with the burning attack sprites so there a ball to shut those f00s up once and for all ^_^

But they still can swoop on you so they just keep going and time it to hit you. Even if they are blind.

1.1 is going to be a much more tactical game because of the beam>swoop thing. I have a question tho, will a beam detonation stop swoop, or do you have to hit someone with the beam itself?

I think you have to hit them, but maybe you could detonate it and stop them.
