MTGO Academy is proud to announce that…
…our new bots are here!
Robots or ‘bots’ are Magic Online accounts you can trade with online to purchase, sell, or trade your online Magic cards. Most bots exchange cards for Event Tickets, but ‘bot credit,’ which you may accrue with a bot with which you trade frequently, can also be exchanged for cards. Bots are an important source of both revenue and inventory for Magic Online businesses like MTGO Academy, and their smooth functioning helps small but growing businesses like ours stay afloat.
Our official bots, which can be traded within the Magic Online program are
They are running 24/7 with our full inventory. You can find them in the Classifieds, or you can add it to your buddy list. To do so, just type, for example, “/addbuddy Academy_Sellbot” in any chat window within Magic Online. If you are interested in foil cards, make sure to visit
Academy_Foilbot, where we have thousands of foil staples for all formats .
So what does it mean that we have new bots? The software was all developed in-house, and we’re quite proud of it. Trading will now be faster and more intuitive! All Academy Bots are “smarter” than our previous bots; they “think” faster and offer more well-articulated prompts!
Our sellbots only sell cards to shoppers. It will not buy cards from shoppers. To sell cards to us please use our Academy_Buybot or Academy_Buybot2, which will quickly scan your collection for cards it would like to buy from you before making you an offer in event tickets.
As an extra convenience, whatever bot credit you have with our sellbots will also be accessible when shopping with our budget sales bot, Academy_Budgetbot, which has been operational for some time.
