I made legend this month in wild with Reno quest mage. (but I already made it in the past).
My advices are:
- Hearthstone is NOT skill based, very few skill is required, (don't believe noob people who think they are smart because they play Hearthstone, smart people are others)
- Reaching Legend, if you are an average player, it is only a matter of time. It is math in fact, when you are playing a deck with more than 50% win rate you will reach it for sure, there is only time in between
- If you are stuck at rank 5. Change deck, play a Tier 1 deck and you will reach Legend in less time
(I am Italian, we are under coronavirus and this month in fact I had plenty of time. Time is the only thing that matter to reach Legend)
I have to ask, have you ever gotten legend in standard (read: an actually competitive format)? Bc i can see why, as a wild player, you might assert that HS requires "very little skill". Frankly I don't think I believe you've ever gotten legend based on everything you said in this comment, but if you have it would certainly make sense that you got legend in a format where everyone memes and there are very few skilled players relative to the number in standard.
This question seems to get asked once every few weeks on the forums. Inevitably you get people providing actually constructive advice, then you have others that say you just need a 51 percent WR, and then you get the people that say it's pure luck with no skill involved and you just need to mindlessly spam que with t1 decks until you magically hit legend.
My advice: listen to the people that provide information that you can act on and use common sense. Breakfast pretty much hit it on the nose when he said you need to stay calm and keep an analytical frame of mind. If you don't get tilted you will inevitably make sounder decisions, and if you think things through before you do them you will make even more sound decisions. Remember that legend is a grind; it doesn't have to be a sprint. Set realistic goals for where you want to be each day (I.E. if you're rank 5 3 stars, you want rank 4 1 star) and proceed with said approach. Try to stick with 1 or 2 decks max (but preferably 1) during your climb. You don't want to have to learn how to play an entirely new archetype well in the middle of your climb. Of course, you should make sure that the deck you're using is legend-capable before you attempt to use it to get there. Best of luck.
