Hearthstone’s competitive ladder system sees players start from Rank 25 each month and climb through to Rank 1 by winning games and gaining stars. Win streaks are rewarded with more stars up.
Previously, Hearthstone was divided into 25 ranks, themselves broken down into stars. The passage of each rank between rank 25 and rank 15 required three stars, that between rank 15 and rank 10 would require 4 stars and that of rank 10 to legend rank required the player to earn 5 per rank. However, from three victories, a victory series bonus.
To go from one rank to the next—say, Gold 10 to Gold 9—you will need to gain three Stars. You’ll gain one Star for each match you win, and lose one for a loss. At the start of each season, players will be awarded a Star Bonus based on their performance the previous season. This Star Bonus acts as a multiplier on the Stars you earn from each win.For example, a player who drops from rank five to nine in the old Rank Ladder will need 20 stars to reach their old rank ceiling. With Star Bonuses, this is something that could be quickly achieved. But a casual player bumped from rank five to the new Bronze ten, even with their most current new Star Bonus, will need to play roughly 50 games just to reach a comparable place to where the reset.Although the ranking is reset, but each player receives a bonus of stars, the results from the previous rank: For each rank above 25 there is a star. So if you take out a season in 15th place, you get 10 bonus stars and starts the new month ranked 21st; The highest rank, which can be reached at the start of a new season in this way is the 16th.
Every time you reach a rank floor (and thus get closer to were you were before reset), your star bonus is reduced by one. E.g. if you were getting 10 extra stars and you hit a floor, you will now get 9 extra stars from now on. It means that players will have easy time getting back to their actual rank, but won’t be able to climb all the way to Legend with bonus stars if they finished lower.Read More

The most obvious solution would be to look at the bonus stars and make adjustments. Right now a legend player is deranked to Rank 16 when the season starts. If the number of bonus stars was doubled that starting rank would be 10. It could also be a more dynamic boost where only rank five to one gives two stars and have legend rank give a five star boost. Now legend players start at rank 12 but.Read More
