People can do whatever they want and will find reasons for said behavior, even if they aren't the best reasons.
I'm personally using a 240Hz G-Sync monitor capped at 236FPS so I don't hit the limit and turn off V-Sync.
I also use blur buster's settings on how to get the least amount of input lag with G-Sync.
Their tests show no difference between V-Sync Off and G-Sync with capped frames before hitting the limit.
They suggest using 3 frames below refresh limit, but I use 4 since I'm playing it safe.
I honestly think a lot of "input lag" people feel on OCN in terms of OW is because of the lack of acceleration on movement.
They're not used to people being able to change direction so quickly compared to other games where there is a slight slow down while changing direction.
I'm not sure if you're answering for me but I'll answer anyway.
Even if don't "affects" you, it's a very little article explaining why the test you linked is not an good argument of how vsync adds a ton of lag since that test doesn't use the trick I mentioned. We can't discuss anything if you're talking "apples" and I'm talking "oranges". And I'm not trying to convince you to use vsync as you already have a better solution anyway.
And yea, this is the magic about PC gaming, everyone can tune their settings to fit their needs. Since people are different, they react different for different things, people go so crazy after the "lowest input lag ever" that they forget our reaction times doesn't work in a fixed rate.
Tearing, stuttering, aliasing, etc. All this things could mess with our reaction time, in values much greater then 10ms~ sometimes. This is the reason I advice people to read, test for thenselves, and if they don't like, just move on. Not enough reason for you to test but could be a good reason for any other people reading.
And yes. I'm pretty sure the "input lag" people keep feeling regarding OW have other reasons aswell, as I said, people just calls "input lag" for absolutely every struggle they find to aim precisely.
