Why is blue side usually preferred over purple side? I'm not talking about purple side being bad. I'm just curious to why most people prefer blue side?

There's a bit of a sight advantage as far as distance on Blue side, since Purple has to go down screen and the HUD bar is in the way. But that can be countered by learning to play with an unlocked camera and other things.

that is not countering it as if you do that you lose information on the other side

meh its easier for jungle to gank bot from blue side, since red buff is closer.

- Easier for jungler to gank bot
- Bot lane can get double golems before minions arrive only on the blue side
- On the blue team, their solo top can get their blue buff, which makes for a good gangplank with blue buff combo
- The sight advantage since the bottom of the screen is covered by the HUD

I prefer Blue so bot lane can take mini golems.

lol he said writhe.......and I feel blue might be better to some players because if they started LoL by playing against bots well human players are always on the blue side. So it is a habit of moving your mouse to the top of the screen to move around the map, instead of the purple side which you need to move your mouse to the bottom of the screen to move around.
