I definitely play more. The main reason is there's a course close to me that costs the same to walk 9 as a bucket of balls at the range. If I'm struggling off the tee, I'll hit the range instead of playing once a week. Mostly, I play. I feel like the array of lies and different shots trumps the perfect lie shots at the range.
Also, it depends on where you are in your game. Two years ago I was at the range every other day and only played once a week. I think it depends a lot on how comfortable you are with your swing. Obviously everyone needs more range time, but I think it's a call that the individual should make more than anything. That said, getting off the first tee isn't really something you can practice at the range.
Finally, I practice 30 yds. and in shots in my yard almost daily (off a mat). It's helped me around the green tremendously. My main goal is to hit more GIR, but I can't deny how much better my short game is from practicing at home.
