I am atrociously bad at inversionist, does anyone have tips on how to improve? For some context, I am not a total beginner, I can easily identify any interval both harmonically and melodically.
Thanks for helping out!

Famous Yooval's SEVEN STEPS to begin recognizing inversions AKA 'transforming your anger into something useful':

1) So since this game is advanced I encourage you or I
would recommend using a musical instrument or even an
app on the phone like a virtual piano, don't fret and
don't feel guilt about it, over time you will be able
to drop this aid (promised)

2) use your instrument to detect the lowest note you hear
(the bass)

3) observe the name of the given chord, play the chord
for yourself if needed and observe its structure.

4) determine which degree of the chord does the bass
represents

5) over time when it becomes easier to hear and separate
the bass note, try to detect the next stage's bass by
comparing it to the previous bass you heard, eventually
that would enable you to forego the use of a musical
instrument. But there's no rush.

6) this game requires you to sweat, decide on how much
time you're willing to invest in it and then stick to
the training religiously it doesn't matter if you
finish a level or not but stick to the workout on a
dedicated DAILY religious like routine

7) please report back on how do you do

Just in case you missed it, someone actually just posted about this like 4 posts down (edit - now directly above this one). Looks like they gave some solid advice.

I second @Brian Blades in pointing you to @Miles Walker 's post.

also @Cuantas Vacas answer is on point, especially if singing all the intervals is still a bit too hard.

It takes some getting used to, but you will get there!

Sorry, people, I took the 'interval recognition' points by mistake when copy-pasting!! I always have a hard time searching for past entries.

@Cuantas Vacas Sorry for this late response, but I have been practicing your techniques and they have helped a ton. Now I am making huge strides in inversionist. Thank you so much!
