Ranked Ladder Player Distribution
Zeriyah posted an article on the official Hearthstone blog today detailing the distribution of players on the Hearthstone ladder; You're better than you think. If you've gotten yourself to Rank 15 or above, you're within the top 25% of Hearthstone players. See below for the important part of the post with the breakdown, and a fancy picture of player distribution. You can read the full blog post here.
Quote from Zeriyah
The top 25% of Hearthstone players sit somewhere between Rank 15 and Legend. Climbing the ladder takes a certain amount of skill and dedication, and these players are constantly honing their skills and learning how to combat all of the different types of decks and strategies that are out there. There’s a lot of growth, learning, trial and error that happens between Rank 15 and Rank 1.
Rank 10 through Legend holds the top 7.5% of Hearthstone players. The competition heats up the closer players get to Rank 5, and win streaks become less and less common. Players here are fine tuning their decks and predicting their opponent’s plays, ready to answer with their own onslaught of spells and minions!
Ranks 5 through Legend are home to the top 2% of Hearthstone players. Here’s where things get really interesting! Win streaks stop at Rank 5, so each win becomes more and more important. In order to hit Legend, you’ll have to press on and win more games than you lose.
Legend rank is home to less than the top .5% of Hearthstone players. Out of the millions of players playing Hearthstone, these Legends make up an incredibly small part of the Hearthstone player base.
