Of Hearthstone Players Are in the 10 Lowest Ranks
Earlier today, Blizzard posted a few statistics on their Hearthstone blog about the game's ranking system. Turns out the vast majority of players are on the 10 lowest ranks. That probably shouldn't be all too surprising, but Blizzard mentioned that they've received some complaints from players that believe they've not been "performing well in Ranked Play compared to others," with some disappointed that they haven't managed to make it to the highest rank, "Legend."
According to Blizzard though, less than 0.5% of players make it all the way to the top, and the top 25% are between rank 15 and Legend. So, if you're looking to make it to those top spots, you've got a long way to go.
