Here the actual results are in blue. The red is the curve transformed by traditional adjustment (assuming the scoring level is adjusted downward). The purple curve is what should happen with percentile-based adjustment, where the best players are less affected than other players.
Adjusted scoring does not assume a bell curve, and it doesn't use a bell curve. Its adjustments are distribution-neutral.

This is the exact post I had buried in my logic somewhere but was unable to properly demonstrate or verbalize.
