Have you ever played in a PvP tournament? Like, not just for ratings and stuff, but one that was broadcast live, covered by media, and had cash prizes?
I've watched the World of Warcraft arena matches at times. I think they are pretty cool. There is a nice cash prize as well.
I've never been good enough to compete in something like that, but I did have a good ranking a while ago. My rated team was neck and neck with the top team on the server, but we ended up finishing server 2nd. Not too bad though. It was a lot of fun still.

If I remember right, the World of Warcraft arena tournies hosted at Blizzcon awarded like $250,000.00. I mean, it's not chump change, especially when you consider that it's just for playing a video game. You have to be good to compete at that level.
PvP in World of Warcraft isn't exactly known for being balanced, so you have to know the ins and outs of it all as well. I watched some of the battles last year, and it's crazy how fast some of these matches are.
I'm not crazy good like that either, and I don't have the time to try to get that good. My vision isn't quite what it used to be either, so I don't see it ever being a thing for me.
I do enjoy watching others compete in PvP tournaments though. I'm blown away by the reflexes some of these people have. I mean yeah, obviously you need good reflexes for high level PvP. They counter so quickly that they must have every move in the kit memorized for every class and spec. It's wild.
