I use to wonder why they could break through your defenses so easily, but now I have discovered that most of the time they arent but rather timing their slices almost perfectly to hit you while your open though. But if you stop being really aggressive and just use their tactic against them effienciently along with standing still and holding up your saber at times (you'll have much better defense then if you were attacking) and doing occasional evasive maneuvers you'll be able to win easily in toe-to-toe combat and sometimes, you'll find that the masters will be runing away from you if you can master the tactics above. And also Zat, I'm sorry I reacted so harshly.
Your auto-blocking is in vain! Only SP source code modification can allow you to block my desann-style attacks without being staggered now!
