That particular thread / forum seems to get no replies, this is what I said..
"I have not attended any event as yet, I only know one other person who plays casually (I got him started - Before that we had only played DotP on steam)I really would like to go to an event but I just think I would be out of place, not sure why. Having to know the ins and outs of the game scares me a little and also a bit confused about standard legals and what cards I could use. As far as I know a lot of my cards would not be standard legal as of early next month.
I am lucky in the fact there is a meeting place for magic players literally down the road from me. I have actually contacted the owner and he invited me to pop down and also take my trade in game code for DotP booster!
Maybe I will purchase a Return to Ravnica event deck and give it a go soon!
I think most magic players have reservations about going to an event. I bet there are a lot of new players because of DotP that would never have imagined playing Magic before playing virtually. I'll be honest I had never even heard of magic before!
I love the game though, I try to explain to people who play other generic (boring) card games like poker how much fun magic is!! They just give me strange looks
Anyway... I feel like it's time to take that next step soon and actually go to a FNM."
