... is that aggression is not always the key, it is just another useful tool. It is not uncommon for fighters to go through a period of fencing where everything is aggressive and very high energy. Pure explosiveness on the field will give you a shot against just about anybody, once. Even with better fencers, you might get away with it a few times. For the average joe shemoe you will probably take about 45-55%, which is pretty good, and the primary reason that so many people get stuck in this 'stage'.
"It's working on 50-60% of everybody and I occasionally get a WhiteScarf, why would I change?" and there are two related answers. #1 you need to improve because the longer you ride that one trick pony, the more likely it is that people will figure you out completely then your game is _dead_. #2 if you never train, never get any better than you are, you'll never _BE_ any better than you are. Is your goal to be a Maybe +/-60% fighter, or a solid 80-90% fighter?

You can ride aggression a long way, but 0-60% is all you're ever going to get.

(P.S. : really aggressive fighters tend to have HORRIBLE form; which when they do decide to finally upgrade they have to re-train. A process that sucks. If you have time to do it twice, why not do it right the first time?)
