The quest to be a legend.

Hello all, before I start off with the point of this blog, I wanted to give a few reasons as to why I am making this a blog as opposed to a normal thread. Reason one, I wanted to update this frequently, but this topic may take a while to accomplish, so I did not want to keep bumping up an old thread or making a new one every time I hit a milestone. And reason two, we don't use this part of the forums enough anyways. I figured we might as well use it since we got it.
That being said, time to get into the point of this blog.
As most of you all know, I play a lot of Hearthstone. And I mean a loooooot of Hearthstone. While you all play your big, fun, and elaborate games for hours on end, I play a child's card game, to quote a few Hearthstone streamers, for hours on end. I have been collecting cards, crafting decks, and refining my skills at this game since August of last year, though I have played the game since it was first released many years ago.
So what is the point of all that backstory? Because I love giving backstories, deal with it m8. In all seriousness though, I am making this blog in order to track a milestone that I have wanted to reach for the past few months, and that is to reach the legend rank on the Hearthstone rank system.
As some of you all know, there are 25 ranks that you can achieve in the system and past the 25 ranks is the legend rank. I usually only get to rank 14 before I stop playing ranked matches for the season. I do that because you get a large reward at the end of the season and get to start at rank 20 at the beginning of the next season. I know that I could probably make it past rank 14, but I always either stopped their or ran out of time in the season.
So that is that. Now it is a test to see if I can inevitably reach legend rank in one of the upcoming Hearthstone seasons. Though it will not be this season because I am only rank 18 and the season ends in like 4 days.
For those of you who care about the game and are curious to see what decks I am running, below is a screenshot of my nine ranked decks. I did not create any of these decks, though I have made modifications for cards that I did not like or cards that I did not have.
