It varies from person to person. Ultimately the most important thing is to have fun
I'm not saying this as a politically correct answer. I'm saying it because otherwise you'll simply stop playing Toribash as it becomes a burden.
Default replay-makers like Larfen and myself give some credit to Enikesha, one of the tools that I mentioned, as a main form to learn. It offers you a way to break down the replays of people you like and learn from them.
advice though, and what might have made me stick with the game for so long, is to make use of the community. Toribash is heavily community-based for a lot of people.
You make replays like you want to, trying to improve every time and having fun while at it, and you post them on the Replays board.
CnC some other players and they'll cnc you back.
Pay attention to what they tell you, listen to their advice, and enjoy that other people take time to watch and comment on your stuff. That way you'll get better.
Also, try and participate in the SP events. Even if you don't win, it's a great way to challenge yourself to get better with a set deadline.
I can honestly say that I improved the fastest in all of my time in Toribash when I used to participate in big competitions.
