The benefits to choosing a different color is so you won’t confuse yourself with others online. Sometimes if you play Team Matches online, you might confuse yourself with your partner and your opponent. In online party mode matches, there will be a time where you have a three-way fight and a majority of the time your opponents will have the same color as default as most players are just starting the game. By choosing a different color just before a match starts, you can differ yourself from the opponents if there are more than one player in the match. Beware as your opponent can sometimes use the same color as your alternate color online. Therefore you should always think about choosing a different color each time before a match begins.
