Distribution

My goal – inspired by Crinacle – is to more or less achieve a normal distribution with my ratings. Only the best of the best should receive the best rating, most IEMs tend to be mediocre.

I’ll regularly try to check this for myself and redistribute the rating accordingly to achieve as close to a normal distribution as possible. You can see the most recent distribution here:
