Well you can see via SteamDB that they have been working very hard on Patch 5, updating every day during the week, sometimes multiple times a day. (Not that I've been checking multiple times a day. Um. Ok I have. lol)
However I am waiting for the promised community update first, patch 5 second. RagnarokCzD is right, they didn't promise a patch straight away, but they promised an update.

While I agree they might be working on something pretty big for the patch, what annoys me the most is the community being promised a community update, and then complete silence for a month. In today's fast paced world where updates and information are almost expected to be at our fingertips, that just isn't a good look for a big company such as Larian.

I am ready to forgive them when the promised update and/or Patch 5 comes out though, as I'll be back playing BG3 in a heartbeat.

Eh, he's being a bit disingenuous as usual.
While he's "technically correct", the only time the update and the patch weren't published at the same time so far has been with Patch 4 in February, and only because circumstances highlighted some annoying bug at the last minute.
According to what the developers stated explicitly it was originally supposed to drop right after the now infamous "Panel From Hell #2".

Its odd to have this much complete radio silence. You know I think it just increases expectations though because everyone is thinking "OMG it must be a huge reveal!" - but what if it ends up being Gnomes?

Like nothing else, no classes, just gnomes...

I'm thinking I'll try it again once they bring in the paladin (thought about trying the mod that's floating around, but it wasn't updated for patch 4 so RIP that idea). The DnD rebalancing mod looks like it should (eventually) deal with a good chunk of my complaints about the combat (since I'm skeptical Larian will address them).

On another note, where did the idea that Larian's gonna say something at E3 come from anyways? I've seen it on here a few times but I can't find any real origin of the idea, let alone Larian hinting at something like that.

It was theorized by people but they are not listed on E3 listings because people said it would be out shortly. A month ago everyone assumed e3 but they are not listed on the E3 release announcements program schedule. Vampire Bloodlines rework was announced yesterday as another company took it over and it was renamed bloodhunt. There was also the Evil Dead game announcement and some borderlands games revealed today nothing else really stand out for most people. I think someone on the forums mentioned lost ark. Which was a koren mmo i believe or rpg that was ported over to english at e3 announcements. Capcom and Square I believe are tomorrow.

I think people (myself included) were just hanging on to E3 as a beacon of hope for some kind of news, any kind of news about BG3... since it's been so long since we heard from Larian, it was a collective best guess as to a date to look forward to, to hang on to in our minds. Was there a logical reason? No, probably not.

I really hope they just send out some kind of message, even something vague like "We encountered some issues and had to delay things, we don't know when the next update will happen at this time." While we would still wait awhile, it'd definitely soothe some worries.

I presume if we will expecting only Community Update, we can be only surprised pleasantly ...
If we will expect Patch 5 in the same day, and it will not come, it will be source of yet another frustration ...
And that frustration will be obviously even worse, the more we will expect of that Patch. wink

That was whole point. :-/

Nah ...
Bloodhunt is about 3/4year ago anounced Battle Royal PvP game, and it have nothing to do with Bloodlines, except same universe. wink
If you watch Outstar, she was talking about it on her channel (or in WoD news) that she is partialy affraid that people will see it as Bloodlines becoming Bloodhunt, but she ensured us multiple times that its not the case. smile

Yeah, it was never official ... talking for myself it was something like:
"We are suppose to get something soon ... there is this action soon ... Larian participatet last year ... so maybe."
It seems like i was once again wrong. laugh
At least im not alone this time. laugh

So today?

They are not on the schedule currently as noted before. Square Enix / Capcom is on schedule for today.

Gnome Wizzard smile
I was thinking about making her a Sorcerer, but unless Pyromancer is included, Wizzard suits me fine enough. laugh

BTW why would that be a problem? Rangers are allready there, arent they? O_o

You and me both ...
At least "we are preparing news show that will be broadcasting in two weeks" or something like that ... simmilar to last year Guerilla anouncement. frown

One would say i will know better by now. laugh
I expected (read as: hoped) for five games ... all of them predicted by multiple sources, even tho i must admit that some of them was a little less realiable than the others. laugh
None of them showed. :'(

After watching the PC gaming show I ended up being thankful they were not there. It felt more like a 90 minute commercial for low-quality indie games with a few exceptions. The viewership was nothing special as well. 200k on Twitch peak. between all platforms I would be surprised if it hit 1/2 million viewers.

Also it was uncomfortably heavily scripted.
