I don't think the OP is being arrogant just because he doesn't like the animations. I think he's expressing his opinion and looking for someone to discuss it with him or perhaps show better footage to sway his opinion.

Well, your either asing your oppinion off of in-game movie, in which case you should point out which one so we have at least a "clue" as to what the heck your talking about.
OR, your basing your oppinion as a beta member in which case your violating the NDA and hopefully your get yourself booted.
OR, your just trash talking our your ass.
Either way, if you knew better, you'd know that as of this point, Spellborn has some of the most amazing animation going right now.

Well from the movies the animations sure look weird. Stick-figures come to my mind. Although it could be that's still all placeholder-stuff, and not developed yet.
"I never said: Thou shalt not think!" --god
pretty true :P But there isn't even been an open beta... And the guys in the closed beta say that it looks 10 times better in-game.
The animations I saw in the Trailer unnerved me as well. They were probably placeholder animations or something though.
He must be talking about the more cartoonie animations, come on people, why would he trash talk for the hell of it, when evidently the grahpics are very good?
Obviously he means something by it. I know some people are not used to the animations (and he did say animations, not graphics), because the toons are also a bit awkward looking in terms of realisim. In some animation to choose from, the characters can seem fairly deformed or off balenced.
I personally like it, becaise its more an art style in animation rather a strict graphic. One of the reasons I like this game is due to the fact that houses and land and objects and characters and monsters have their own unique style compared to other games, visually.
Sure you can pick a toon with skinny legs and arms and waist, with a big head... or a fat guy with really small head, lol, but thats just part of the style, and it really does give variety in custimization and personality. You have to look at this game as if it came out of a fairy tale story almost.
I think this was what the OP was refering too, the animation style he is not a fan of. The graphics in this game are very good, as well the engine.

I kind of agree... only in so far as to say that the animations appear to be incomplete, or unpolished if you will. I certainly hope they will have the things I noticed in the videos fixed prior to or very shortly after release, because they are annoying. The foot slide when a character is walking or running is probably the most annoying to me. It doesn't have to be perfect by any means, but the foot should stay pretty close to where it hits the ground, rather than sliding backwards as the character walks. It looks like the walking/running animation is moving too fast for how fast the character is actually moving forward.
It's too bad stupidity isn't painful.
