If that is the case, you know what to do.
This is a really good answer. It takes a lot of experience at any particular level (and more so when moving up a level) to dial in your aggressiveness correctly.
Keep working at it and you'll find the sweetspot with regards to defence / offence for each opponent type - then you'll improve and have to go through the whole process again at a higher standard of play!
