I understand just fine. I also understand that the very top tier players probably benefit from this. I'm not a top tier player, but I'm quite competent. I've spent extensive time both with 120 Hz TN and 60 Hz IPS, and I'd take 60 Hz IPS ten times out of ten for gaming.
However, 99% of the way in which 120 Hz panels get talked about is a bunch of marketing bunk or repetitions of marketing bunk. Most players will see no improvement other than placebo, because they are not so skilled that their gameplay is hampered at times by a 60 Hz refreshrate with lackluster response time.
Like I said - go find something other than anecdote to prove me wrong if you are so confident of your own position. If my claims are so bold, surely that wouldn't be hard
