Is this Really Random?

The random team generator is an algorithm which creates any number of randomly skilled opposing teams and spits out the PR ratios for statistical evaluation. The program simulates the proportion of players falling within each skill bracket at Tier 8. (i.e. 5% Red, 37% Orange, 41% Yellow, 15% Green, 2% Blue and 0.2% Purple) I have generated 4000 matches for comparison purposes, but the stats remain pretty much the same no matter how many line-ups you simulate. Everything looks normal, but it would seem that some bell curves are more normal than others..... As you can see, the WoT bell curve is altogether more 'compact' with a standard deviation of only 3, a variance of 11 as opposed 135, and a positive kurtosis indicating less outliers. So, the question now becomes, why is MM's random so different from mine. I'm hoping that somebody has a reasoned explanation instead of the normal scathing and meaningless comments!....
Hey_man_Gneis_shot: Thank you for the nice presentation and visual graphs! Regarding Random Battles on a whole, especially from the perspective of a mostly Tier V-VI player, I run into Tier VIII battles quite frequently. No I do not run XVM and just play the vanilla client. It "might" be helpful to look and see what type of players I am going up against, but I don't trust just stats and want to play according to what I know about the vehicles I'm going up against. Just my advice but worry less about the other teams stats and more about your position, your teammates, and if you're spotted.
