How many Players reach Legend in Hearthstone? [Update: Feb 2023]

Legend Players Twitter

Thanks to an update in the Hearthstone Leaderboard, we can finally see the total amount of Legend Players, officially confirmed by Blizzard.

This post also includes unofficial Data from 2020 to compare the numbers.

» January 2022

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.

» December 2022

In December 2022, the new Expansion March of the Lich King launched, leading to many more players reaching Legend.
In total, 66% more players reached Legend (77526 compared to 46569 in November).
But what’s most interesting: While Wild only saw a 35% increase and Standard 62%, Classic got almost three times as many Legend players and, therefore, continues to be the mode that grows the fastest.
