Reddit found some pretty exciting file strings in the game's .dat as of today; most notably hints of the Looking for Group tool and something called Skyhammer.

Skyhammer
  • "Maintain control of the Skyhammer cannon to call down lightning and vaporize your foes."
  • "Skyhammer Cannon Overcharged".
  • "Halt all movement. Experiment incoming".
  • "Test subjects may experience dizziness, confusion, and death."
LFG Tool
  • "Click here to list your part for others to be able to search for."
  • "You must select a filter from the left before you can advertise your group."
  • "Your group is currently listed for other players to find."
There are also a few gem store items mentioned, specifically the unlimited logging axe and a dragon coffer filled with fireworks and other goodies. Rough models of a dragon mask, and Back-to-School clothes also found their way out of the .dat, as well as mention of the upcoming swimwear.

While none of this has been mentioned in any official capacity, it's no secret that the Dragon Bash will be coming up shortly. Don't get any crazy ideas in your head because of me, though. Speculate away!

It has apparently evolved into the Dragon Bash, though I don't believe we have any specific details of the festival yet.

Festival's in GW1 were awesome, hopefully they can do something good with them in GW2 and not just focus on the gem store 90% of the time with gambling box's and such little content it's embarrassing to even call it content and laughable like their usual pattern lately.

Skyhammer either sounds like a new fractal (unlikely based on earlier statements from ArenaNet) or a new mini-game coming with the festival.

^ Or an event when the festival goes awry. We all know GW2 festivals never go off without some sort of hitch. Some idiotic Asura will probably think it's a good idea to have a dragon minion petting zoo.

^ We idiotic asuras take offense to that! It's actually a display of used-bomb-golems. COMPLETELY safe! (There's only has a 50% chance any of them will explode making it TECHNICALLY harmless to half of our visitors)

Back to school outfit looks so cute. I'll definitely buy it. Assuming it'll be a gemstore item in the future! Need more cute asian inspired town clothes! Kimono!? Japanese sailor school uniform!? Hanbok!? Hanfu!? Yes pls!!!

Very curious to see how the back to school outfit will look thought, on an asura or charr lol.

It does not come as a surprise concerning LFG tool. Remember guy on their article, they said that first 6 months of 2013 were about polishing what already exists in game and the LFG is in the list.
It hasn't still be released, and June is the 6th month, so it HAS to be on end June if they don't want to break their promise (which is not very likely since everything else came as promised)

Actually there is no confirmation anywhere that it is NOT related to Cantha,

OK, Living Story has been awful, and yes holidays have been full of gem shop RNG, but I don't see how you can call GW2 holidays lacking in content, particularly compared to GW1. Only one of the games has given us multiple instances of completely new maps per holiday within one year; for example, SAB vs annihilator is not even a comparison.

I haven't been this excited since release, I think the fact that it's somewhat secretive makes it more enticing and appealing....wait a minute. ..THIS IS A PLOY FROM ANET TO GET PEOPLE lol.

That LFG tool sounds about right for what we've known was coming:

A better way to advertise and search for group MANUALLY, but not an automated group-builder.

This way, by being manual, it will promote community rather than destroy it. At least, until it starts showing up with things like 'zerker warriors only'...
- Making it fix 'stupid' (the obsession CoF PUGs have with zerkers) would be hard, as it would require the tool not allowing a comment section or not allowing us to be able to see even what class or level people are ahead of time.

But making it manual will do a lot to helping the game maintain as much community as is possible among today's MMO playerbase.

Please, for all that is good, make the school girl uniform a light armor and not town clothes.

Actually siege weapons have a 50 target limit, and if this is what it sounds like it will be some kind of siege super-weapon ^^

NUCLEAR LAUNCH DETECTED.
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

There was already a data mined SPVP map with a single trebuchet-esque objective. The Skyhammer sounds like it would be it but who knows.
