Hi all, TacoRocco here. This is the first article that I have written for the site, so let me know what you guys think of some of this advice! Today I am going to give you all a few tips for getting Legend rank if you are struggling to make it all the way and get that highly coveted card back.
Hitting Legend Rank Will Take Time
First of all, I want to start off by saying that hitting Legend rank is not as ‘difficult’ as you may think. What makes it ‘difficult’ is that it is time-consuming. Going from rank 25 to rank 5 is generally pretty quick, this is mainly because you are facing lower skill or casual players. The other reason why it is so quick is because you get bonus stars for win streaks, allowing you to blast through some ranks if you get lucky. However, once you hit rank 5, you will no longer receive bonus stars for win streaks and you will generally be paired with players that know how to play the game well. When I hit Legend rank for the first time, it took me about 40-50 games to go from rank 15 to 5, then about 200-300 games to go from rank 5 to Legend.
If you want to reach Legend rank, I suggest you plan ahead of time and start playing as much as you can from the start of the season. If you play from the start of the season, remember that everyone’s ranks have been reset, so a lot of high skilled players will be at Rank 15 and higher during the start of the season. Towards the middle and end of the season are when Ranks 15 to 5 begin to get easier. Don’t let this discourage you from playing during the beginning of the season, you want to try to try to get as many wins early as possible so that you don’t have to rush towards the end of the season.
Keep Track of Your Win Rate
It is very important to keep track of your deck’s win rate and what its best/worst match ups are. I suggest using Hearthstone Deck Tracker, it is an amazing app that tracks your wins/loses automatically and also gives you some other neat tools while you are in game such as an overlay that shows what cards you have left in your deck. If you are not able to use Hearthstone Deck Tracker, I still recommend that you track your win rate manually by recording wins/loses in apps like Excel or Word or on good ol’ pen and paper. However you choose to track your win rate, make sure that you keep up on it.
Tracking your win rate is important so that you know if a deck is working well. If your deck’s win rate is higher than 50%, than keep playing it. Even if it is 55%, that still means you are winning more times than you are losing and you will eventually reach Legend rank. As I mentioned previously, it will take time, so just relax and keep going!
A lot of great decks have been hitting the top of the ladder with the ever impressive Kolento reaching #1 Legend on two servers with his Quest Warrior. Take a look below at all the other decks that have stood out to me this week!
If you’re looking for a full list of the best decks for the ladder check out this post: Hearthstone’s Best Standard Ladder Decks.
Standout Decks of the Week
This deck brought Kolento to #1 Legend on both EU & NA simultaneously! It’s hard to deny the power of the Quest Taunt Warrior while it continues to occupy the top of the ladder for multiple people.
It’s still hard to believe that a Silence version of Priest that runs Purify is a ladder viable deck. The crazies part is that not only is it a ladder worthy deck, but it got UpZuka to #2 and Feno to #3 Legend!
This week’s Tavern Brawl is ‘Servant of Yogg-Saron’ Tryouts! Choose a class, you get a deck full of random neutral and class minions. Each time you play a minion a randomly chosen spell will be cast.
