Do you prefer time with increment or without?

Incidentally, my speed chess is really suffering at the moment. I've had a series of colds and flu, as have many people, and it slows down my thinking and forces me to have to check my moves continually. I would still be able to play classical controls with only maybe a 25% impairment.

However, I just played this, which was pleasing, seeing as my mind is filled with fog.

One thing that becomes apparent from looking at games like this via the engine analysis provided here is how weak the engine actually is. It's very good for tactics but no good for anything else. If you get it to analyse a Chess960 position, it doesn't have a clue. It actually gives the opening moves for the Sicilian, 1. e4 c5, as +0.4! Ridiculous.

I like having increment since it provides me and my opponent some cushion to ACTUALLY find a good way to continue the position and not just play a random move for the sake of it. ( Note: I am strictly talking about OTB chess, in online chess flagging is my best bud)
