While the mini-set launched on February 14, 2023, it didn’t help with the number of Players reaching Legend in Standard & Wild. In total, almost the same amount reached Legend (81.6k compared to 81.4k)

Standard had 9% fewer players reach Legend (44.3k compared to 48.4k)

Wild had 13% fewer players get Legend (13.8k compared to 15.8k)

And Classic did its one thing and had 37% more players become Legend (23.5k compared to 17.1k) – Bots might have influenced that numbers.

» January 2023

While it seemed to me that fewer players reached Legend in January, this is not the case.
In total, 3922 more players reached Legend (81.5k compared to 77.5k in the previous month).

Standard had 10% fewer players reach Legend (48.4k compared to 53.2k)

Wild had 13% more players who got Legend (15.8k compared to 13.9k)

Classic had 65% more players going to Legend (17k compared to 10k) – tho we have to add that Classic has a big problem with Bots, so I am unsure how vital their numbers are.

In December 2022, the new Expansion March of the Lich King launched, leading to many more players reaching Legend.
