While it's true that the eccentric phase there is more damage to the muscle, not as heavy weights can be used and in general is more limiting to workout frequency.

Both are adequate stimulus for weight gain, and moving heavy weight as fast as possible confers more benefits along with working higher frequency.

So there's very little to discuss honestly.
