The hop-up effect eliminates the whole "SHOOT AS FAST AND HARD SO IT'LL GO FURTHER BEFORE GRAVITY MAKES IT DROP" ideology here.

If you're gun is putting the proper amount of air (every time) down the barrel the BB will be riding on the same air every time, people with major air leaks or an inconsistent sealing piston head will not have sufficient air to push the BB out of the barrel properly so there's a chance it'll contact the barrel and greatly effect range/accuracy.

It's similar to someone using a MP5K cylinder in a M16 length barrel (as an extreme example)
