...your opponent gets to go first? When you go first, you get to setup your cards like Normal Summoning Stratos without the fear of a Warning or putting down Royal Decree.

It's so annoying to me when I don't go first. I don't think I've ever met anybody who would let me go first after winning RPS on the Dueling Network and I wouldn't let anyone go first if I won RPS either.

going first offers a 1 card default advantage during your turn (turn 1 = 6 - 5, turn 2 = 6 - 6, turn 3 = 7 - 6 and so on) and things rarely get negated (like Veiler)
going second is playing catch up but you get to attack on your first turn.

card advantage + set up is often better then attacking first
people won't often relinquish to you the first turn.

The Card Advantage is kind of a moot point though. Think about it if your opponent gets to draw first.

In example, they change the rules a bit and make it so the second player draws first.

1st turn: 5 vs 5
2nd turn: 5 vs 6
3rd turn: 6 vs 6

Yeah...that's why I edited it out.

Well someone has to go first. We're not going to suddenly change it so that each player draws 2 cards per turn from the second turn onwards.

if the person going second was the first one allowed to draw, I would go second.
MTG got it right regarding advantages of First and Second in as setup is just as important as 1 turn default card advantage.

Yu-gi-oh is a faster game (especially nowadays) and so any form of card advantage takes precedence.

Card advantage + First attack >>>>>> 1 turn earlier setup.

my point of my first point is the first player always has a 1 card default advantage during their turn, whether it's their 1st turn or 15th.
Going second second offers 1 advantage, they can attack first. If the don't attack they lose that advantage, and a second turn attack means little when the duel is on it's 16th turn.

going first offers an advantage throughout the duel, going second offers an advantage for 1 turn, which the person who goes first can negate/destroy/banish.

As I said, people won't often let someone else go first in Yu-gi-oh

First or not is an argument in yugioh that is as old as time. Let's look at both sides of the angle. if you go first you can set you the field without an interruption from your opponent, but you don't get to attack. If you and your opponent have a typical 40 card deck then you will be vulnerable to deck out. If you go second you can attack and force your opponent to use up his resources. A well placed MST or Giant Trunade can nullify the back row. Dark Hole and Lightning Vortex can get monsters off the field, which can set up an easy attack, quite possibly an OTK. There are a few cards that activate in your hand which could make all these points I made a moot point. The overall point I am trying to make is this is not really an issue. Some decks thrive on going first. Some decks thrive on going second. Its all about preference and I personally like going second cause I use dragons and some of my combos rely on going second.
