Why is it green and red, if blue and purple exist?

It keeps bothering me in the dominion play videos how the team tower score bars are Green and Red, yet the teams themselves are still Blue and Purple... Would it not be more simple to just keep the bar color and team color the same?

Red and green are easily associated with good guy and enemy. Plus its easier to stt and tell who's who when things get heavy.

burple and blue would blend too much, especially to us folks who are partially colorblind

This was explained on day 1.

Easier to see who is on which side. Besides, we already play where green is ally and red is enemy using health bars. Notice the minions are still blue and purple.

Also red and green to help those who are color blind. Red and green are on completely different sides of the spectrum, blue and purple would end up blending together too much making the game harder to see and understand.

Red green color blind is the most common type of color blindness...

People with red green colorblindness often have just as much trouble with blue and purple. I am personally colorblind, and it's a lot harder for me to differentiate blue and purple than red and green, most of the time.

The most common type of color blindness applies to Red and green fyi.
It makes them appear as brown.

I thought I remember Phreak saying something about changing the colours to blue and purple to make it better for colourblind people on the first Dominion day... but I haven't seen anything to support that yet.

Blue and Purple suck in my opinion. It's like Blue is actually working for Purple secretly (since blue takes part in making purple) Green and Red are much better or any opposing colors (yellow and purple, blue and orange).
