I've been playing HS since the release of Un'Goro, and I have made it to rank 1, 5 stars in the old ranking system multiple times, but I was never able to hit legend... until today!
Yes, I know that with the new ranking system it is significantly easier to hit legend, by an extra 10 stars, but it's still nice to finally get the cardback, and that extra pack for the end of the season is pretty nice too!
I don't really have anyone else to share this with, so I thought I'd just put it up here.
I used Trump's Token Spell Druid, it worked incredibly well against everything except Rogue, don't think I won a single game against Rogue. Warlocks and DH's were a piece of cake, which was awesome because that was the majority of my meta.
Congrats dude .. I was in the same situation too reached many times rank 1 before but never made it .. i finally did it at the start of the season with gala warrior ... got Millhouse though for legendary xD but i just wanted to get legend anyway so its fine.
