Honestly every MMO on the market today shouldn't hit the shelves without such a tool. I play GW2 and TSW along with the normal WOW and other MMO's and currently cannot play because all I enjoy in MMO's in dungeons and raids. I log into GW2 or TSW spend an hour plus looking for a group, if I do manage to find a group It is even that much better when it falls apart after the 2-3rd boss. So its back to spamming again, at least with a LFG tool this process could be automated and probably take less time.

Nothing will change, basically. Theoretically, it'll just be less of a pain in the ass to tab to a browser. Such that one finds alt+tab burdensome. Naturally.
People are mixing up porting, with insta group and that with LFG.
Arena Net has stated they have plan for an LFG tool. By the sounds of it, they have no plans to make it like WoW's which does everything for you(there's no real roles that you can indicate for a grouping algorithm anyways) but there will be something to facilitate grouping.
In the mean time http://gw2lfg.com/ this website is wonderful, and is likely how GW2's in game LFG will end up working.
And unfortunately I don't have a source on hand, I frequent the official forums and GW2guru and it's been mentioned a few times in interviews and posts over the past several months.
I found this after a quick google search http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/c...pdated_gw2dat/ , it's also been said directly by Anet here and there, but I'm too lazy to look it up :P sorry.
I can't find anything from Anet but were are working on a group finder, and tons and tons of conjecture. The datamined stuff, well its datamined, we know that isn't always accurate. If it is only a gw2lfg.com then its embarrasing that its taken 11 months so far to implement the most basic of basics.
(This is the utopia of life without LFG btw: groups that take an hour to form, wipe endlessly, and break up without finishing the instance.)
Also, have any dungeons ever been re-tuned? When I attempted them a couple months after launch they were completely unforgiving to PUGs and I never got to finish any.

As long as it works something like the current WvWvW & PvP system, I'd be excited to make a return to this game.
To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
To the OP.Anet is not working on a whole Looking for Group system.Including PvP,Open world and Dungeons.At least that is what i understood from their replies.
In my opinion it will be similar to the gw2lfg.com - In that tool you have all the aspects of the game (PvP,dungeons,Open world).
