short answer: no

long answer: it depends on how the individual taps the keys (do they use their wrist? their arm? their fingers? etc).

Oh, i see. So this is more of a habit than anything else ?

And this long answer made me realize that i've never actually paid attention to what i use to tap haha

Personally I've been more accurate and speedy with a lower row of keys since my hand is more relaxed and doesn't lead to tension. Probably the same for a lot of players too.

I feel more confortable using q and w, but for fast streams i move my wrist forward to hook my fingers more wich feels more comfortable using z and x.

Looking at your rank, it doesn't seem like you have a problem using those keys so I'm gonna say no it doesn't

Lower keys are default for any with english keyboard-design and another reason to use them is bigger accessibility.
When going for higher keys like QW you have close to no freedom to curve your fingers unless you play with your wrist being elevated.
That affects the way you tap and can potentially affect your speed even though I can't provide information which way of tapping is the fastest in theory.

It doesn't fucking matter what keys you use. You can be fast with anything, as long as they are close enough to actually press.

Today I switched from my Blackwidow 2014 Tournament Edition Stealth to a Logitech K120 (yes that rubberdome) and my speed increased, I also tap my buttons more lightly now.

I personally use my tongue

Also I just tried using sanwas for osu! and my speed went down dramatically. Never doing that again, unless I can get lighter springs.

I used z & x because they are the defaults.
