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!

But like... in LoL red side is at a disadvantage in game because the block at the bottom of the screen showing your abilities blocks your vision of the map and champions because that's where they're coming from while defending your turret.... THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN

Im more likely to win when im team blue then red in blue team im more defensive or cautious and strategic and a bit aggressive attacking strategys when i am in red i just keep dieing cuz i dont know what im doing to do and i make more mistakes by being aggressive i play cautiously when in team read my kd ratio for blue 2.1/3 red 1.2/3 kd ratio and i dont like the color red i like blue more and i got use to blue for so long those stats are like for me blue makes me adopt red team stats and blue team stats and merge em together so thats why im better on blue team.

How wouldn’t blue help? If red makes you more urgent then won’t it make you react faster to seeing a enemy red if you are on blue and make the other person want to think it out but would actually die before they could

Back when I was playing halo 4 every single day after school and weekend almost every single match was won by the blue and me playing a match was almost never put on the blue side so I was wanting to get on the blue side and that counts too when halo 5 was out and my dad bought my family and Xbox one it kept happening again but a little less more than halo 4

I ENTIRELY agree with this because I play Mobile Lengands and whenever I’m on the blue team it seems like we always win. But whenever I’m on the red team I always die more often and it’s almost impossible to win I’m not joking this is true I’ve played for over 5 months

Psychology cheat codes sometimes don’t work, when I play team fortress 2 I play blue and get my team to beat up the reds. When I play red, same thing happens unless there’s a crit for either team.

This also explains how throughout history, countries with certain colors win or lose. For example, the British were very aggressive and pushed out into as many countries as they could(them being red), and the French empire being really strategic in battle(them being blue)
