Starting in June of this year, Wizards of the Coast will add a new level to the Wizards Play Network called Advanced Plus. This new level gives qualifying stores more of our limited products to support their larger player communities and to ensure a great in-store environment for all players. Advanced Plus will help stores take the next step toward creating the quality events our player community desires.
What Are the Benefits?
The Advanced Plus level will give qualifying stores access to several requested benefits:
Increased quantities of limited products (such as From the Vault)
Increased quantities of Buy-a-Box promo cards
Special items, such as calendar white boards and tablecloths
These benefits will go into effect beginning with the Magic 2015 prerelease.
That's sweet. We definitely easily achieve those numbers. I'd say the hardest to qualify for is number of events; that's just under two and a half events a week.
I disagree, I think the hardest thing to hit is (by far) 0% delinquency, given that WER is closed source and is prone to spontaneous crashes and other such tomfoolery, being one who operates the software on a regular basis.
Our store will generally run 6-7 events per week - Tuesday draft, Wednesday Standard, Thursday Modern, 2 FNM's on Friday (Standard and Draft), and usually has at least one weekend event. So, that's not very difficult. But expecting to go an entire year without a single event crashing or otherwise not being able to be uploaded / reported really expects too much from the event reporter; if the delinquency level was set at even 2%, it would seem far more fair.

0% delinquency seems impossible. It is gonna happen at least once a year. Between Hardware issues, and issues with the portal, issues with the software, issues with hardware on the back end I don't see how any store can be expected to meet 0% for a year. It is hard for us to hit 0% in a given week because of issues that pop up from time to time.
Apparently if an event says it's delinquent in WER it doesn't mean that it's delinquent to WotC. Even when we have a delinquent event in WER, according to WotC's scorecard we have 0 delinquent. We literally have had 0 delinquent according to WotC for years.
