So I'm terrible at the game, but because of a ton of practice mode and bot matches I've become much better at the physical mechanics of playing from the Radiant corner than the Dire. Playing as Radiant also seems to give a slight advantage because we can see further downfield.
This being a 3D game, we could easily play Dire on a rotated map, nullifying any perspective-based advantages. Are there any downsides to that option? Or is that slight Radiant advantage balanced out by something else?
