This displays that I have many weaknesses. Weaknesses I have many weaknesses which mean I am not be able to play as well as some more able players. As I have so many weaknesses it is vital that I improve. Making Improvements I need to make drastic improvements so that I can actually play at a higher quality and so that I can help my team in a game. Improving would mean that I would not be a weakness of my team and this would improve play overall. This would also mean we have a greater chance of winning a game. Also improving would mean all my skills would develop to a better standard which again would mean a higher standard of play. ...read more.
