MTGRocks.com is part of Gfinity Digital Media and is committed to provide coverage for Magic: The Gathering, a major franchise of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro. We cover all content related to Magic: The Gathering; including, card tournament play, MTG Arena play, video games, and more.
Day to day we publish breaking news as it happens, explainers aimed at helping people learn more about the game, and where possible review criticism that informs readers of upcoming new titles and products.
The below editorial policy sets out the sites approach to reporting, corrections, our working relationships with the industry, as well as our on-site commercial activities.
If you would like more information on any of these policies, please contact our editors.
When reporting on stories we will always endeavor to cover them as accurately as humanly possible. Though we acknowledge that in this incredibly fast paced industry – which is itself made up of monetised systems and more – we may sometimes make mistakes.
Should readers feel we have made any errors in our reporting, we would encourage them to email editors asking for a correction or clarification.
When writing about potential leaks or rumours within the industry, we will always make sure to clearly state this in the copy and encourage readers to take every story on face value and not as gospel until it is confirmed by a company or individual.
Should new information come to light which alters the perception of any of our stories, we will always endeavor to update existing stories, or when required by publishing a fresh story entirely.
When reporting on information first revealed by another publication, we always endeavor to provide a prominent link to credit the original work. That being said, we acknowledge that in the fast-paced environment we work in, sometimes we may forget to include links; but we encourage fellow site editors to message Gfinity editorial staff to request we put these in after publication.
On occasion our work may sometimes require staff to travel to report on events or soon to be released games, normally at locations chosen at the discretion of publishers and third-party organisations.
In instances where MTG Rocks staff accept travel and/or accommodation from a third party, we will disclose it within the relevant article(s).
In order to produce some work on MTGRocks.com, we will work together with game developers, publishers and other organisations.
In most cases this means the site may receive pre-release materials [press releases, assets] and/or access to titles before they launch.
In the case of reviews for MTGRocks.com, we will endeavor to clearly outline what platform of a game we have used for review and if necessary what version of the game this was when remarking on bugs or issues we encountered.
On occasion, MTGRocks.com may be required to agree to embargoes that prevent us from publishing content until an agreed date and time. We may also agree to signing nondisclosure agreements (an NDA) that prevents us from discussing certain elements of a game.
In all cases writers working for MTGRocks.com will endeavor to produce content which we believe is a fair reflection of the titles we discuss. We will not produce content where we feel an NDA may compromise our overall opinion of a game.
At Gfinity Digital Media we always aim to keep editorial and advertising content separate.
Any promotional content we do share on the site will always be clearly marked in headlines, for example: “Cadbury Heroes League – The Ultimate Countdown (Sponsored)“
Any links included in articles do not intend to influence editorial decisions, but will aim to inform users and where possible point towards the best price available at the time of publication.
