Huge advantage of going first. The game plays itself when you play against people that know what they are doing.
There is so little decision making in this game it's not even worth playing
try the expansions
It is way less trivial/determenistic!!!
If you are still thinking, it is a game decided in the first turns, try to play anyone above 630 elo. If they play seriously you will notice very quickly that is not so
First player advantage is Just a major problem in original and Pantheon, not Agora or playing with both expansions.
Note: not saying that original is simplistic, just simplistic in comparison. Also it gets way harder against actually superb opponents. BUT the decisions one can make to unscrew situations or getting advantage, are way more rare and less impactful, in the sense of turning the game!
