    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!

    I started explaining to my little siblings about the red-blue thing and then played two different team games on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for a bit.
    Matthew and Sophie were red when we played a VS team game, and I was blue.
    I lost by a lot.
    Then we played a Balloon Battle, and again I was blue and Sophie and Ava were red.
    My team beat theirs by 18 points, and then Ava proceeded to start punching me (she's 7 and I'm 13) when I started chanting that red was the worst.
    Then again, I think both Ava and Matthew are weirdly serious about the game.
    When we play, Ava is always 12th place, and Matthew usually gets first.
    Unless I beat him.
    So Ava almost closed us out of a round, during the SNES Rainbow Road, after Matty had gotten first on Wario's Gold Mine. I was 4th, Matty was 2nd, Sophie was 7th and Ava was 12th.
    I came second in that race, and Matt went ballistic, trying to hit Ava so hard I had to go over and pull her away from him.
    He beat me overall, as per usual.
    Ava, on the other hand, when Dad told her to stay in the centre of the track in Ice Ice Outpost, yelled at him, and then stormed out of the room crying, shortly followed (during Hyrule Circuit) by Matty when something wasn't working. Even on autopilot, he came 11 over Dad playing as Ava.
    And why did I write all of this?
    Er, because why the heck not?
    You all need to know about Mario Kart in this family.

    At 3 30 the game shown is Titanfall. You don't get to choose the colour of your team. You are blue and the enemy is red, but in the enemies eyes your team is red and they are blue. Just thought I will let you guys know.

    When it comes to league of legends the blue side actually has a similar advantage to the white side in chess. They get first pick in champ select which can give you a big advantage. Red side is actually considered incredibly strong because they get last pick which can be used to outsmart and counterpick the enemy team but North America in particular is incredibly bad at using this. Aaaaaaanyway just thought you should know since it somewhat invalidates parts of your argument. :)
