    Oh god no, what have you done. You'll awaken all the, "You're playing GW2 wrong!" and "GW2 is perfect and doesn't need your ideas!" people.

    No no no, shhhhhh, must not wake them up....

    They've talked about it some recently(like last 2 weeks recently) and have said the lfg system is in the testing phase. Whether this means it's coming within the next month of events or even next 6 months remains to be seen, however they have said it will be this year.

    There is one in game but it's terribly clunky so no one uses it. The gw2lfg.com site is very good however, over 5.8 million groups have formed with it in the few short months it's been up. I know it's not what you're looking for but it's what we have for now.

    And Wilhelm is correct, Colin stated in a recent interview that they were currently testing it, I expect it very soon
    It's going be pretty comprehensive from what I understand, forming groups for dungeons, WvW, DE's and more.

    It's under your Friends List. Like I said, it's pretty terrible so you won't find anyone listed on it looking.

    Current gw2 lfg is kinda like old WoW lfg(didn't used to be a queue, used to be a dropdown menu with comment) as far as menus go, they're very basic in design and yet counterintuitive as far as finding them goes.

    Part of me looks forward to a lfg system like most mmos have now, at the same time it's going to start off very elitist. A lfg system will get many people to queue for instances that never ran them before or didn't know about sites online and those people are going to merge with the people that have been doing them for months and don't care to carry the "baddies" because they're new. All you can really hope for if you are one of those people is that they have a damn good boot system inplace to where unless it is clear you a holding the group back there can be no boots throw out, because ya....if not there will be many boots between the first non skippable trash and boss/event that takes some understanding to do.

    Honestly I really wouldn't like to have the LFG system as it is now in WoW, that is clicking a button and getting into a queue. I think social interactions are important in an MMO, and when you just queue people up like this, you remove those social interactions. A good system in my opinions would be a server wide tool that lets you choose what you want to group for (including which path of a dungeon, which level of a fractal) and puts you into a list. You can browse the current people etc. Basically like the site that has been linked tough I would prefer it to be server specific, but I don't know if that would be enough so maybe multiple servers are necessary.

    I just think it's better to get to know people on your server etc. That's just my opinions. Also while we are on dungeons I think they could fix some things like kicking with only 2 people voting and some issues on basically how the game is handling entering the dungeons. I disconected during a boss fight and couldn't join my group and help them for the rest of it because when I logged back I was ported out of the dungeon, and when I re-entered, I was dead.

    They really do

    Explored every zone, got 92% map completion, got all exotic items, just got to the last stage of my personal story just to find out that it requires me to do the dungeon on the final stage when every single other quest has been solo >.<

    Big time, the amount of time I have wasted trying to form a group or even find one. Pure annoyance.

    I wouldn't like there to be a LFD system. Being ported into a dungeon with random people would be a nightmare in GW2. I don't mind spending time talking in map chat forming a group, more or less every dungeon I've been into I had a group formed within 5 minutes by asking in map chat or sitting outside the dungeon entrance.

    I can pretty much guarantee there won't be any automatic porting to dungeons. Colin actually discussed this a couple months back but I can't go to find it now.

    There is automatic dungeon porting now. Did Anet state they are removing the mechanic that already exists?

    Automatic porting really makes no difference in a game with instant portalling......

    Sure it does, you still have to discover it (or at least, the zone it's in)

    Right now 1 person needs to physically enter the dungeon, then everyone else in the party in the same zone gets a popup asking if they want to join the dungeon. That is not changing I'm sure.

    I was referring to the WoW type dungeon porting where you queue up and are automatically ported into the dungeon. It won't be like that.

    Effectively, no, but portals serve as a (minor) gold sink, and the need to find the dungeon/zone of the dungeon does direct your play, ever so slightly. But realistically, I don't care about direct-to-dungon portalling for a dungeon system.
