According to this stat tracking website

http://www.elophant.com/league-of-le...n=all&tier=all


54% is actually quite a strong advantage and this is consistent across the board from bronze to challenger, so its not like only people who lock in their camera angle experience this problem.

Why do you think this is? My guesses is that 1) blue side has stronger buff control on purple's blue (the most important buff in lane phase) 2) blue side bot lane can do double golems easy 3) its easier to gank the purple side top lane (takes more 1 more ward to be safe if you are pushing the wave) 4) purple side has less screen space 5) blue side has stronger baron control

All of these things may not give too much on their own but they do indeed add up.

Its always been like this, matchmaking tries to neutralize this by matching blue side players with higher elo purple side players

Well, matchmaking apparently fails because blue side still wins 54% of the time.

purple side already has the higher elo players
if it was completely same skill level both sides, it would actually be 60%

of course all the delusional bronze and silver players think both sides have no difference and just say people who don't like purple side are locked camera noobs

well, where do you draw the line at how far ahead these players are. Should we have silver blue side and plat on purple?

Double golems play very little in it. The majority of games are bronze and silver level. You know how often bronze and silver players do double golems? It isn't very often.

true, but it's possible that's one of the factors as the skill level goes up.

The purple side should see the map from their side so they aren't going downward and you'll always be moving North-East
