But in a symmetrical Bell curve, the median is the mean (average).
Sure, but the symmetrical bell curve is irrelevant here, since a player's results are unlikely to follow one. This is especially true if they have games they'd had to step away from and didn't complete until hours later, or perhaps the next day. A few extreme outliers will wreck your mean.
