Mine is right tilt, and I’d prefer left. The main advantage about left tilt is when you’re cutting miters. If it’s right tilt, you make one cut with a square edge against the fence, but when you turn the board around to do the other edge, the mitered edge will want to slip under the fence. With a left tilt, the mitered edge is at the top face and will be riding high on the fence.
