Red vs Blue. It's the two default colors to differentiate opposing teams in most games, both video games and in real-world sports. But in balanced games, what if the choice between red and blue made a difference? What if choosing either red or blue would give you a strategic advantage, putting you in a position to win right from the moment you press START? Well, the secret is this: COLOR MATTERS. Which color is stronger, red or blue ?Watch and choose wisely!

LOL maps are not symmetric as far as I can remember. Dragon, Baron, positioning (top or bottom), and of course the fact that normally the support goes bottom, which has a different jungle for every side.

Okay, here's an example that proves this as true. When I play Halo 5, I'm usually blue. And red ALWAYS WINS. When I do a local game on Reach or 4 though, it goes to skill. Think I'm lying? My stats for 5 are 11 games: 10 loses as blue, 1 win as red.
Raggierd Dragonslayer
Also, just for proof that we dont evolve, I and many others I know actually prefer the color red than blue because of eye appeal.

Uh, this has nothing to do with tf2's color spectrum because of these reasons 1. Stalemates 2. Teams switch off every round 3. Tryhards exist on either team

But in a game like robocraft you see yourself and your team as blue no matter what so if I said: “Hey red surrender now!” They are going to see our team in red not their team as we see it so it looks like I’m telling my team to surrender

Ok I didn't watch this full vid yet but we see the other teams as blue, so red team sees blue team as blue Blue team sees red team as blue
No wonder everybody wearing red in Roblox Rap Battles normally sucks and every two words there's the things that everybody hates. Primary example, I gut the cash, you are #####, just go ### ## # #### HastagCorrection.exe: TRASH.............DIE IN A HOLE
wait does the red mean error or film theory? cause in film theory there is only one red.

Hey, Matpat! I've already read that book and I can tell you it was awesome! You probably know he comes from Sweden and so do I. (I read the exact same book but in swedish) :) PS:Thought you would like to hear that you've got fans from Sweden to.
