Well, It certainly can't hurt to have on-demand range! I'm just saying the game gives you all the tools you need to play without having Thor Thumbs, haha. (I believe Thor does a combination of both strategies, fwiw. But, when he needs the extra range, you can clearly see the power of Thor's Hammer! ) Unless you're matching or beating 10 times per second, there is definitely going to be some potential gain in utility by leveraging the game's built-in move speed. I can't even get close, -- not consistently anyway -- so I'll never tap unless it's very close to the center of the playfield, or a single timed tap hop at the end of a move to extend beyond the piece's normal DAS range.
