You're one of the newer players with the most potential, don't give up friend

And yes, sticking to one position for awhile helps a lot. I mained defense when I first started playing. IMO the best way to improve is to play one position enough to where you can play that position in inhouses with much better players, without pissing anyone off. At that point, your rate of improvement will increase dramatically because you've surrounded yourself with better players to observe, be challenged by, and ultimately learn from.

Tenkz: "In the case of all who may be reading this, a 'Pub' is a player who severely lacks skill." That's the thing is us "puby" players never get ih invites, i've played only 7 ih games, and i've been playing ZH for now 6 months. '1' does not guarantee you an invite at all, i've been finding it very hard to improve while playing pubs. (Trying to improve in your game against new players is rather hard) I'm not good enough to play "ih" games yet, but i think the only way i will be good enough is if i play them.
Kurt: WarHunden takes a snipe! WarHunden with the game winner here. He has the crown, he's +3 on steals, he's +3 on goals, he has an assist, 13 passes 15 received. He played superb, he played really good. Great goal there for him.

Just because high level ihs are not available to a lower level player does not mean that they will never get better. Instead of whining about never playing in ihs, create one of your own with people that are around thesame skill level as you or better. This way you are able to create a more competitive game that is better balanced, causing you to have more fun and get better.

In regards to the reaction speed test, I'm calling bullshit here.
