What is the WIN achievement system?
The WIN achievement system is meant to provide you with a fun way to track your progress with our games and your participation on the WIN. While we’re hard at work on making the achievement system as rewarding as possible, we want to share this first phase of the new achievement system with you. During this initial phase, the achievements are a small reward for participating in events and staying involved. For example, if you sign up for an event in the WIN, you’ll unlock the, "Party Over Here!" achievement. It’s that simple.
How do I see what achievements I’ve already earned?
You can track the progress of your achievements on your Profile Page. This page will tell you which achievements you’ve earned and how close you are to earning others.
How do I earn achievements?
Each achievement on your Profile Page includes a description for what you need to do to earn that achievement. You will get credit for new achievements the next time you log into the WIN after completing any prerequisites.
Why are some of my achievements greyed out?
The greyed out achievements are the ones you haven’t earned yet. Once you earn each achievement, they will fill in and track when the achievement was earned.
What is the difference between Player achievements and Store achievements?
Player achievements are meant to track a player’s progress with our games. Store achievements reward stores who support the WIN and our players by running and recording events for our games.
Welcome to the WizKids Info Network (WIN), new store! This tutorial will help you through the steps of setting up your new account on the WIN which will allow you to run events officially! When you arrive at the WIN home page, click the SIGN UP button in the upper right corner.
A prompt will appear on your screen asking you if you want to REGISTER AS A PLAYER or REGISTER AS A VENUE. Click on the STORE SIGN UP button to proceed with creating your store account.
Before you begin to fill out your store information, you will be prompted to agree with a promotional product license agreement (PPLA). Read this page carefully and at the bottom type "I AGREE" (all caps) in the field provided. Hit the "SUBMIT" button to progress to the store information page.
On this page, you will fill out all the information required to register your store. Be sure that you enter everything correctly (address, e-mail, etc.) as this will be the means by which you are contacted and how players will locate your store!
Be sure to pay close attention to the Distributor Information section at the bottom of the screen. You’ll need to input the distributor you purchase WizKids products from as well as your account number with them. This is purely to allow us to verify that you are a legitimate store with an active distributor account. After entering your information and clicking the "Sign up" button.
After you’ve input and submitted all your information, you will need to wait for approval from a WIN admin before you can create and run events. This is a manual process and you will be contacted by WizKids once your store is approved.
While waiting for your WizKids approval, you can sign in and browse your store account page which looks like this:
At the top you will see your current account status. If you haven’t been approved yet, your status will show applicant like above. Under your account status you will see some options that you can click on and fill out while you wait for your store to be approved. You can edit your account or store info, change your password, add house rules for your store, and more! Feel free to take some time to explore the various sections on this page while you wait! Hopefully, by the time you’re done, your account will be WizKids approved so you can start running events in the WIN!
In this section, we will walk you through volunteer management in the new WizKids Info Network.
Once a player has applied to be a volunteer for a store, it is up you to accept or reject them. The next time you log in and look at your account page, you will see something like this:
As you can see, under the Volunteers tab there is an indication that a player has applied to help as a volunteer. The store can choose to either approve or decline the volunteer request. Click on "APPROVE" if you would like to accept the player as a volunteer for your store and you’re ready to go!
Congratulations! Your store now has a volunteer. Now every time you create and schedule an event, you can add that volunteer to the event to run it on your behalf. Additionally, volunteers can also create and run events on behalf of your store! You can choose to remove a volunteer from an event while creating or managing the event as highlighted below:
Once your store is approved, you are now ready to start making events for your store! To create an event, you will need to click on the "My Events" button at the top of the home page.
This will take you to the page below where you will see the "Create New Event" button along with a search page where you can find your upcoming and past events.
NOTE: If you are a volunteer, go to your store's page and select the 'Store Events' tab from the menu on the left. You will now see the "Create New Event" button.
After clicking on the "Create New Event" button, you will come to a page where you fill out all the information for your event. Start by choosing to use a WizKids Template, a Personal Template, or Create From Scratch. Note: Personal Templates will only be available once you create an even from scratch and save it as a template.
Once you fill out all information, assign volunteers, and click “Save Event”, your event is created! Your event will now show up on your My Events screen as well as in the store/event searches.
We hope this has been helpful. As always, feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any difficulties or questions.
Both stores and volunteers can edit scheduled events. Editing events is as simple as clicking on the "Edit Details" button for the event in question.
After clicking on the "Edit Details" button, you will come to a page where you can change the information for your event. You can also add users, start the event, or cancel the event from this page. Once you’re done editing the details, click the “Save Event” button.
Now, you’re ready to go! As always, should you have any questions please feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=WIN:Support
In this section, we will walk you through event reporting. Ready to see the system in action?
To report an event, you will need to click on the "My Events" button at the top of the home page. This will take you to the page below.
Find the event you wish to report from the menu. It’s important to note that sometimes you may have to select "Past" on the drop-down menu if the event you want to report has already occurred.
But wait! Before you start reporting your event, you need to Add Users to your event. Click on the Add Users button to do so.
When you click on the "Add Users" button, you will be directed to the screen below. On this screen, you can search for players in the WizKids Info Network database. Here, we’ve entered a player username and located him. We can now check the box next to his name and then click "Add Selected" to sign that player up. You can also click "Browse" to select from players who have participated in your past events.
If the participant is a new player and hasn’t registered in the WizKids Info Network, you can register that player yourself! Simply fill in the new player’s information here to create a guest account for them:
Once you’ve filled in the player’s information, click on the "Create and Register" button. A username will be automatically generated (if you wish to change the username, you must do so now). In order to set the password for this new account, the username and e-mail address will be needed. Repeat these steps as necessary until you have all the participating players listed like the screen below:
Once your player list is correct, click the "Start Event" button. Once you do so, you will be brought to this screen:
Now, click on the "Seat Swiss" button and your players will automatically be paired for you!
After clicking on the "Seat Swiss" button, you’ll notice that everyone was randomly seated with an opponent. Now, play for Round One can begin!
As matches are completed, enter the score in the appropriate text box and/or select the winner for each match.
Once all scores are entered (including any for the Bye player), click the "Save" button to save all changes to the round. Then, click the "Round >>" button to go to the next round.
PLEASE NOTE: If there are any unsaved changes to the current round, the "Save" button can be clicked so that this information is not lost. If you close this window without saving, your information will be lost. By clicking "Save", you send the information to the database and it will still be there (on a different browser, a different machine, etc.) if you should close the window and/or return to finish at a later time.
Now, before we seat Round Two, let’s say our player, dummyplayer123, has dropped himself from the event. Click the Drop button next to dummyplayer123 to drop him from the event.
Once you drop dummyplayer123 from the event, we can now see him in the Drops area.
Now that we’re ready to begin Round Two, let’s click on the "Seat Swiss" button again and pair our players!
As you can see, because dummyplayer123 dropped from the event, we only have 3 players left. ThisIsATestSignUp is automatically given the Bye because they have the lowest record among the players still in the event. BrickJamesBeech and Ubriculius are paired against each other.
We continue this process for each round of your tournament and until we have a clear winner. For this event, after playing 2 rounds, we have a clear winner. Now it’s time to save and click the "Finalize" button.
On the Finalization screen, one can review the current player scores and win/loss records to make sure the games were reported correctly. If something is wrong, click on the "Edit" button, make the correction, and then click "Finalize" to return to this screen to review again.
If an event has 2 players with the same "best" record, there will be a drop-down list that will allow the judge to indicate who the winner was (among players with the best record).
Fellowship is available to any player that is not the winner of the event.
Once fellowship has been selected, click "Finalize", and you’re done!
After events have been reported, you can view the results of the event again by clicking the "View Results" button on the Event Details page for the event.
Now your event has been completed and reported! Repeat this process for all your events for easy tournament management and continue to register your events to ensure maximum player attendance!

The Leaderboards are a way for players and clans to track their progress, as well as to track the progress of other players and clans. Points for the Leaderboards are determined by the following:
Each game a player wins is worth three points, while ties are worth one point. This point total is multiplied based on the type of event (as outlined below). Finally, a pre-set number of participation points (as outlined below) are added to this multiplied point total. Clans gain points by the aggregate points earned by its members.
The event-based multiplier is as follows:
- 1x: Store custom events, Con-In-Your-Store
- 2x: Pre-release events and Monthly OPs
- 3x: Storyline OPs
- 5x: WKO, Regional Championships
- 8x: National Championships
- 12x: World Championships
Participation points are awarded based on the number of players in the event:
- 0 points: 0-4 players
- 1 points: 5-8 players
- 2 points: 9-16 players
- 3 points: 17-32 players
- 4 points: 33-64 players
- 5 points: 65-128 players
- 6 points: 129-156 players
- 7 points: 257-512 players
- 8 points: 513-1,024 players
- 9 points: 1,025+ players
Leaderboard data is recorded starting from April 01, 2015 (The win/loss record on your player page goes back to the start of the WIN). The Leaderboard standings are updated weekly at midnight Wednesday (Eastern US). At the close of a Leaderboard period, stores have two weeks to report events from that period before the final standings are set.
Leaderboards can be viewed from the WIN navbar or by the "Leaderboards" tab on the player’s profile page.
Selecting the "Leaderboards" tab will take a user to the Leaderboards standing page for that user and show their standings in the four different game types for the WIN. If the user is a member of a Clan, then the Clans standings are shown as well.
Selecting the "Leaderboards" option from the navbar will produce a broader set of leaderboards for all four game types that will show the user’s standing at the top with the top ten users for each game type below.
Clicking the "View Full Standings" link will bring a user to a more detailed page, where you can view the rank of all players on WIN. Options on the left side of the page can be used to select which game type, time period, and country the Leaderboard will display. This page includes leaderboards for individual players and clans.
The Clan system is a way for friends or players with similar interests to enjoy gaming together and work towards a common goal. Clans can have a maximum of 10 members and you can only be in one Clan at a time.
Players can join or create a Clan by selecting the "Teams" tab on the players home page.
On the "Teams" tab, you will see two buttons, one to "Create a Clan" and the other to search for existing Clans so you can see if you would like to join other Clans.
Selecting the "Create your own" button will bring you to the Clan creation page. Here you can name your Clan, give it a motto and description as well as allowing you to indicate your location. The most important part of creating a Clan is deciding on the registration type for your Clan. You can choose from public, allowing anyone who views your Clan to join until the limit of 10 is reached, or you can select 'officer invite only', where only officers and the owner of the Clan can invite others to join.
Selecting the "Find Existing" button will bring a user to the Clan search page. This page will have a list of existing Clans for the user to view. If there is a specific Clan the user is looking for, there is also a search function where the user can find a Clan by its name.
Once a Clan has been created the next step is to either create the emblem for the Clan or to view the Clan’s home page.
First let’s look at the Clan home page. Here, the user will see a page like the player’s profile page, allowing you to view all things related to the Clan. There is an area for a Clan-wide status message, an About Us section where events can be added for Clan members to take part in, a Clan achievement section, and a Clan activity section as well. The Clan’s emblem can also be created or edited from this page. Finally, the details of the Clan can be changed from this page as well.
Next it is time to create the emblem for the Clan. Selecting "Edit" or "Create an emblem for your team now" will bring the user to the emblem creation page. On this page, the user can choose from a variety of borders, shapes, backgrounds, and numbers to use to create an emblem that fits the Clan. There are four layers that can be used in the emblem and the images can be rotated, flipped, and colored to the user’s desire.
Once the emblem is finished click the "Save" button and a confirmation message will pop up telling the user that the image has been saved. Selecting the "Back to Team Page" button will take the user back to the team page where the new emblem can be seen.
Back on the Clan home page the new emblem is shown in the top left corner of the screen. If further edits are needed, there is an "Edit Emblem" link below the emblem itself.
Selecting the "Members" tab will bring a user to the members page where the leader, officers and regular members of the Clan can be seen. The leader of the Clan can select officers for the Clan as well as demote officers, to make them regular members again. Officers can promote other members, but do not have the power to demote other officers down to regular member status. Both the leader and officers can kick regular members from the Clan.
On the "Events" tab there is a link where the leader or Clan officers can search for events just like a regular player would.
Once an event has been found, use the "Add to Team Events" button to have the selected event show up on the Clan home page and in the Clan’s "Events" tab.
When selecting the event there is an area where a message can be typed for members of the Clan to see.
Finally, there is the "Achievement" tab where a list of Clan-only achievements are presented, to be achieved by all members of the Clan collectively.
