I believe realtime chess is preferrable because this kind of the game is very exciting .Playing on line gives an opportunity to feel the battle

Correspondence chess gives you best satisfaction as you create a piece of chess-art. From blitz games you get short time excitement but you never remember this games. Both they are both very nice to play so dont exclude any. CR IGM 1990

Realtime chess, is good if you are out of coffee and need a quick rush. Correspondence chess, if you want to savour the flavour of the game.

In RTC my time always passes too quickly. :) Therefore, either miss my turn, or make a blunder. So I think CC is really great thing. At least for me.

I like the depth and thematic stability that correspondence chess offers. In real time games tactics usually interfere and distract you from your goals, so that you are forever reassessing and changing your plans. It's like a novel where you think the story is going to lead somewhere, but it suddenly changes to another direction and leaves you with a feeling that important questions have been unaddressed. In correspondence chess you have the opportunity to plan, say, a kingside attack or a central pawn advance, and to anticipate where the opponent's counterattack will arrive. Having made adequate preparations for that, you can often push your original intentions forward. And correspondence chess is a deeper probing for understanding too.

OTB is best. But realtime otherwise. Short games, 10 minutes (blitz) or less, prevent your opponent usung a chess engine.

I think they are uncomparable; anyway I prefer corrispondence chess, with a short time per move (max 2 days) because, in my opinion, it let you develop tactical and strategic attitudes and learn from mistakes
