I think you just need to play some mono or dual Seaside games to get it, and also just 2C>1E

with more cards to learn at a time, there's a lot more playing by intuition out there. hard to blame them.

yeah agree, no blame here. it's just an odd phenomenon!

while we're discussing 2010, does anyone remember that guy that would post every game he lost due to bad luck in the game reports section, but only because he was searching for validation that it was just bad luck, and he would argue a lot if you argued contrariwise? because we are all that guy, we just hide it in different ways.

People that haven't been playing since 2010 are kind of unlikely to be familiar with Dark Ages cards.  :P

I intuitively know this.  It still just seems to me that getting a Silver(3 cost card) and losing one estate should be better than ridding 2 coppers and getting 0 cards that turn.

Well, normally it would be. It's just that Ambassador is so much stronger than any other card in your deck at that point that you want to thin as fast as possible so that you can play your Ambassadors as often as possible, even if it means returning Coppers over Estates or skipping buys.

Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way
