What this Means

ManaNation has struggled for strategy and competitive content in the recent months. Our writers excel at cultural discussion, casual, economic and other topics, but we don't publish much that is competitively minded. At least, we haven't. We're extremely excited to have Darwin Kastle and Ben Hayes joining us to help us drive into this new range of content. These two will not be the only writers we bring on board to drive this content, we are seeking more Pros and competitive players eager to write for us.
