This is arguable.
Id see it rather as real PvP pros finding the arena setting dissatisfying and artificial compared to finding their targets (or being found) in world PvP. Although if its well “balanced”, and they have limited time, they might participate in it.
From what I gather, once one gets really good at PvP, what makes a fight good and fun to them is certainly not wtfpwning an incapable opponent, nor even winning. Some will kill it anyways to pad killboard, but most will just move on after checking the target isnt bait.
Its the looking for a fight, and the fight itself they enjoy. Not whether they win or lose.
Furthermore, all elite PvPers I have witnessed, pride themselves on flying without bling, except occasionally for the lols or to add some flavor to their fit. Once you get really good, the challenge is in accomplishing as much as possible with as little as possible, not flying around in an officer fit ship.
