I have three criteria.
First is the players. Is there anyone I know personally or by internet reputation already committed to one side?
Second is the theme of the game. Do I want to play Good- or Evil.
Face it, there's always a protagonist & antagonist, that's part of the whole Scenario genre that sets it apart from a simple Big Game.
If neither of those two apply, then the third criteria is "which team needs the players?"
I'll always choose the underdog. Meaning the side that needs the most help is the one I'll play for.
For me, a 4th consideration that relates to the theme of the game is possible costumes. I get an extra thrill out making a spectacle of myself.
But I know that's not for everyone.
Now, if none of that is good for you, then just go play & have fun.
Don't worry about which team you end up on, just help the team you're on get the win by running missions & gathering props.
And always listen to your General. You can best help him by being on the field.
