After completing the application process, you will be enrolled in a probationary four-week WPN Orientation period. This consists of three parts:
- Checkpoint conversations with your WPN Administration Specialist.
- Achieving the Orientation Ticket Requirements for your region.
- Completing all modules within the Learning Management System.
A dedicated WPN Administration Specialist for your region will outline this process for you. Checkpoint conversations will help you get to know us, help us get to know your store better, and provide you with useful insights that have helped many other successful WPN stores.
Scheduling and Reporting Events in Wizards EventLink
Equipped with the Definitive Guide to Wizards EventLink, you’ll begin scheduling and reporting your store’s events and working toward your region’s Ticket goal.
Learning Management System
You will be enrolled in our new Learning Management system, consisting of informational videos about the WPN and a survey of your learning experience.
Your access to the Learning Management System is limited and will be removed at the end of your WPN Orientation period.
By the end of the four-week Orientation period, we expect your store to complete the Learning Management System and reach a required Ticket count milestone. This milestone is determined by your region.
What are Tickets? Tickets are a total of all entries across your Magic: The Gathering events, in any format. If one player plays in one of your reported events, they count as one Ticket. An eight-player event counts for eight Tickets. Don’t forget that casual play also counts toward your store’s metrics!
The following Ticket requirements apply to each region:
- North America: 45 Tickets
- Asia-Pacific: N/A
- Europe: N/A
- Japan: N/A
- Latin America: N/A
Update: Starting in North America, we are beginning a gradual rollout to reinstate WPN Orientation metrics as a part of the WPN Orientation Program. The Orientation Ticket Requirement for North America will be 45 Tickets. We will communicate Ticket Requirements for each region as needed.
We have high standards for entry into the Wizards Play Network. Your store’s WPN account may be closed for any of the following reasons:
- Missing the required Ticket count for your region by the end of orientation.
- Missing more than two scheduled appointments.
- Violating WPN or individual program policies, found here.
- Failing to demonstrate appropriate commitment to the WPN program or failing to respond .
We also reserve the right to close any WPN account at our discretion.
If your WPN account is closed, you may be allowed to reapply for membership after a temporary waiting period, depending on the situation. For additional details, speak with your region’s WPN Retail team.
