>anime
>japanese culture
The only common thing japanese culture and anime culture have is that they're both from Japan. They're basically polar opposites in every other regard.

Spoken like someone who doesn't actually watch anime.
Phrases, ideas, literal translation problems, rules of society, you misunderstood the statement to begin with. Much of anime borrows for everything but lots of the influences are, (you fucking guessed it) Japanese.

Localization is when you butcher the script to make it "more western"
God how the fuck, uh, think of like, the Avengers, think of all the American stuff being made to sound like it was made in China
makes no fuckin sense

And semi-competent players know that all too well. If they have a Loki, Thor, Thanatos or any other assassin that can bypass the rest of the team, I may as well bend over and accept my fate, because I'll always be the one they focus. Yesterday I had a joust match, where the enemy team had a Loki. 9 of his 12 kills were me. Would have been more like 20 out of 23 kills if I didn't have an aegis.
User avatar #43 - ciacheczko (01/07/2015) [-]
You're the one they'll focus so expect it and be prepared for it. Like, throw your 2 straight under your feet instead of poking the enemy team. If they will dive, they will walk into a slow and are guaranteed to take decent damage. And they know it. Thor/Thana flying up, or Loki going invisible? Have 3 set up asap - use it to dodge them before they attack. Your Sentinel lasts longer than their flights/invisibility, so feel free to use it pre-emptively. It will discourage them. Scylla is nowhere near to being as easy to get as, e.g. Hel.

Assassins rely heavily on killing their primary target fast - but they also die easily and are extremely CC-vulnerable. Having fast-reacting Ymir or Athena by your side should be enough - if they are good and don't burn their CC for some overextended initiation, that is. And there's a considerable chance that, if you die a lot because of enemy assassin's successful dives, you have a team that can't peel for shit.

Then again, no miracle will save you if you are so paper that you die after 2 small crits. Any stray spell and AA can kill you, you can't dodge everything. I back the opinion that buying a Polynomicon against an assassin is a really shitty decision. You get armor against phys, simple. I personally prefer Midgardian Mail. Health, Armor, AS reduction and MS reduction in just one item? Sing me in for money well spent.

Pure offense is fine only for so long and if the enemy will hold you off past mid game, then their assassins and warriors will gear up and you'll get fucked.
#44 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
Yeah, I already do most of that. You tend to learn it on your own while desperately trying not to die. However, I don't get any tanky items. I tried it and came to the conclusion that it's pointless on someone like Scylla. Playing as her is basically like playing dodgeball, except you're dodging wrenches. If you fuck up, you will die. It's as simple as that. The only way to prevent it would be to build multiple defensive items, which would render Scylla useless, because without her damage, all she has going for her is a little stun that most people dodge easily. Instead I go for the "the best defense is a good offense" approach, where I just don't let enemies get near me.

The reason I like Polynomicon is because of the passive. It's simple - I have 900 MP. When I see an assassin heading towards me, I throw down my 2 right in front of me, they jump at me, I use my 1, which roots them and does a shitton of damage, because of 2s' MP reduction, autoattack for 500+ damage and detonate the 2. Most assassins die after the autoattack. I can also use it offensively. Use my 3 to go near someone, autoattack, 1, 2, autoattack, detonate 2 if they're still alive (which they likely aren't). Without it she has literally no sustain whatsoever, so after she throws her 1 and 2, she has to either sit there and do nothing for 5 seconds or run away. The Polynomicon fixes that. Helps me play more aggressively.
User avatar #46 - ciacheczko (01/07/2015) [-]
Well I also get her a Polynomicon, but not as a defence measure. It's a good item for attack, but a shit-tier defensive item. True that really well-played Scylla doesn't need defensive items - but players who are that good are scarce and if you constantly get upset with getting killed, chances are that you are not one of them.

She has CC-immunity on her whack-a-god ult, triple snare, massive aoe slow and huge gap gloser that lets you pass walls. If you fuck up all of your spells that bad as Scylla, you deserve to die.

Anyway, the truth is that only bad, selfish players who like to see big killcount next to their names don't get any defense at all. If the enemy team has sick healing, it's your - an AoE's mage's - job to get Divine Ruin instead of Polynomicon or Bancroft's, to reduce that healing. Because you're the one who hits everyone and cripples their regeneration. This item really wins games.

If you fall prey to enemy Thanatos and spend 50% of your time dead, because you consider yourself too cool to build defensive items and rely on offence so much, you are a direct cause of your team's defeat. Scylla has sick damage anyway, especially with that passive of hers - using up one item slot isn't that much of a waste. Even some Breasplate of Valor instead of Chronos' Pendant - to get Armor while keeping the CdR - is already something.

Besides, at some point, the increase of damage stops making that much of a difference. Once you can one-shot the enemy damage dealer, you're good. Going further is an unnecessary overkill.

User avatar #52 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
Well, yeah, I'm by no means a great player. Also, I don't get upset when I'm killed. I get upset when it's some bullshit like the team doing literally nothing to help me or when it's something like an Ymir/Cupid combo where they get me in these massive AoEs that I can't escape and my aegis is on cooldown or when their Loki won't leave me alone for 5 seconds.

As for the egotistical part, I admit I like large numbers, but I still get a Ruin when they've got a Hel. I still want to win the match, after all. And I don't die THAT often. I'm often the one on my team with the fewest deaths, since I know when to get the fuck out of there.

Also, I disagree about the damage. With my current build I can down a titan alone in 30 seconds tops. Since I play cautiously in teamfights and act as artillery support and a snare dispenser, I'm occasionally the sole survivor of a teamfight. In that situation, being able to dish out tons of damage as quickly as possible is vital.

Also, how could I not build so much damage on someone who literally says "Damage for the wiiiiiiiiin!" whenever you buy one? Come on, that's the god basically telling you what to build. I ain't one to disagree with a sea monster.
User avatar #54 - ciacheczko (01/07/2015) [-]
Well Athena says an unsure "I... like it..." when you get her a tank item, so I guess what characters say is not as much of a suggestion as you think... Now you're just pulling out some silly arguments.

You play a mage. You should get used to being focused. It's obvious that they will use their ults on you. Drop all their shit. It doesn't matter whether you are Scylla, Poseidon, or Ra. You will be the first one to get jumped - unless your team has an excellent healer who has to be taken down asap.

As Scylla you have:
-Aegis
-Beads
-Massive gap closer
-Massive aoe slow
-Decent-to-massive movement speed bonus PLUS CC-immunity
-Single-to-triple snare.

Every Scylla's spell can save your ass somehow. Plus two additional saves from Actives. And even two more if you get spell vamp and Magi's Blessing - which you should if their CC is excessive and you are up against Ymir-Artemis or Ares-Cupid. That's 8 ways to keep yourself safe. I can understand a lot but it's not that hard to survive as Scylla. I understand that you have cooldowns that you burn - but every god has them.

Yeah, but they almost always focus you. Or at least focus me. You have no idea how many games I've had recently where I was playing as Scylla and in a teamfight, their assassin would literally run past the rest of our team, who did nothing, jump me, kill me in half a second and then die, when our team finally remembers there's someone back there, use up all their abilities in an attempt to get an easy kill and then get slaughtered because they decided to completely ignore the enemy team in favor of that one kill. Same procedure every damn time. It's happened so much I get her a Polynomicon now in the vain attempt to increase her 1v1 capability and survive that.
User avatar #31 - attifyon (01/07/2015) [-]
Don't buy Polynomicon, but Witchblade if they're physical, and Voidstone if they're magical. Also Fist of the Gods can help if they don't have a CC immunity.
That alone should also show how dangerous Scylla can be; Janus' damage output is way higher but also easier to avoid, and I've never seen a Janus get focused to that extend for that same reason: if a Janus initiates, you might be in danger. If Scylla initiates, you are in danger. You'll either get affected by her 1, caught in her 2, get nuked by her ultimate because rest of your team already died to her 1 or 2, or possibly multiple of these at once. She is like Anubis, but harder to counter, and slightly harder to play.

User avatar #19 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
I'm not saying she's hard to play, just that she's nowhere near the 'faceroll and carry team" levels of easy you're describing. If she were, good Scylla players wouldn't be so fucking rare and everyone would be playing that little abomination of nature, like they did with Freya, He Bo, Ao Dickhead or any other god that was easy and good. And the problem isn't just hitting her abilities, it's surviving it. Any hunter can kill her in two hits, most mages can do so in a single. Play against any semi-competent players and you're unlikely to have a KDR or more than 1.
User avatar #22 - attifyon (01/07/2015) [-]
I'm not saying she's faceroll level of difficulty, but she both has the capability to carry a game AND is considerably easier than most other mages that can. She is easy in the sense that unless you literally slam your hands on your keyboard and waste every single ability, you'll be fine. She has two escapes, a root and a slow, making it VERY easy to run away after a failed gank, unlike your "If you miss a single ability you die" statement. She can waveclear with a single skill and harass with her 1+autoattacks, and still back off with her 3 if things get too dire, making it really easy to win lane unless you get severely outplayed/focused by the enemy jungler. Not to mention the 80 magical power, 25% penetration and 12 MP5 she gets, which basically means that building her wrong does not really punish you unless you literally go full ADC with Fatalis, Demonic Grip and Telkhines' Ring.
If you're playing against a semi-competent player, and you're semi-competent yourself, you WILL have a KDR of at least 1, and most likely even 3.

Anyway, the truth is that only bad, selfish players who like to see big killcount next to their names don't get any defense at all. If the enemy team has sick healing, it's your - an AoE's mage's - job to get Divine Ruin instead of Polynomicon or Bancroft's, to reduce that healing. Because you're the one who hits everyone and cripples their regeneration. This item really wins games.

If you fall prey to enemy Thanatos and spend 50% of your time dead, because you consider yourself too cool to build defensive items and rely on offence so much, you are a direct cause of your team's defeat. Scylla has sick damage anyway, especially with that passive of hers - using up one item slot isn't that much of a waste. Even some Breasplate of Valor instead of Chronos' Pendant - to get Armor while keeping the CdR - is already something.

Besides, at some point, the increase of damage stops making that much of a difference. Once you can one-shot the enemy damage dealer, you're good. Going further is an unnecessary overkill.

Well, yeah, I'm by no means a great player. Also, I don't get upset when I'm killed. I get upset when it's some bullshit like the team doing literally nothing to help me or when it's something like an Ymir/Cupid combo where they get me in these massive AoEs that I can't escape and my aegis is on cooldown or when their Loki won't leave me alone for 5 seconds.

As for the egotistical part, I admit I like large numbers, but I still get a Ruin when they've got a Hel. I still want to win the match, after all. And I don't die THAT often. I'm often the one on my team with the fewest deaths, since I know when to get the fuck out of there.

Also, I disagree about the damage. With my current build I can down a titan alone in 30 seconds tops. Since I play cautiously in teamfights and act as artillery support and a snare dispenser, I'm occasionally the sole survivor of a teamfight. In that situation, being able to dish out tons of damage as quickly as possible is vital.

Also, how could I not build so much damage on someone who literally says "Damage for the wiiiiiiiiin!" whenever you buy one? Come on, that's the god basically telling you what to build. I ain't one to disagree with a sea monster.

Well Athena says an unsure "I... like it..." when you get her a tank item, so I guess what characters say is not as much of a suggestion as you think... Now you're just pulling out some silly arguments.

You play a mage. You should get used to being focused. It's obvious that they will use their ults on you. Drop all their shit. It doesn't matter whether you are Scylla, Poseidon, or Ra. You will be the first one to get jumped - unless your team has an excellent healer who has to be taken down asap.

As Scylla you have:
-Aegis
-Beads
-Massive gap closer
-Massive aoe slow
-Decent-to-massive movement speed bonus PLUS CC-immunity
-Single-to-triple snare.

Every Scylla's spell can save your ass somehow. Plus two additional saves from Actives. And even two more if you get spell vamp and Magi's Blessing - which you should if their CC is excessive and you are up against Ymir-Artemis or Ares-Cupid. That's 8 ways to keep yourself safe. I can understand a lot but it's not that hard to survive as Scylla. I understand that you have cooldowns that you burn - but every god has them.

Easy to land? If someone's stunned, maybe, but her 1 is a bitch and a half to hit, due to how slow and easy to dodge it is (I've never had an enemy Scylla hit me with that, no matter who I was playing as) and her ult has a second and a half of wind up time, about a second to hit after you've clicked and another second and a half afterwards to recover. That's 4 seconds of complete vulnerability. That's enough for any hunter to kill yo ass and enough for even the slowest and stupidest players to get the fuck away from you. And even if they don't run away, it's still easy as fuck to dodge. Also, her escape may be good range-wise, but it still takes nearly a second to set up and use in an emergency situation. Compare that to Neihts' instant "lol see ya, bitches" button and it's pretty damn bad.

I'm cool with being called a scrub, noob or whatever, but you are factually wrong. This shit ain't Fenrir.
#18 - attifyon (01/07/2015) [-]
Her 1 has a massive hitbox, moves rather quickly, has solid range, and can affect up to 3 targets, it is ridiculously easy to hit compared to something like Janus' or Chronos' 1, or hell, even Freya's Pulse+Irradiate. Not to mention her 2 also has a slow so you can combo them if you're really having trouble.
Her ult has 2.5 seconds of animation, nowhere near 4 seconds. And she has a root and a slow in her kit; which makes her ult really easy to land if you combo it.
Her 3 may take a second to set up, but gives you vision of the area you're about to jump and lets you cross walls, unlike literally every single other mages' mobility skills.
Scylla is easily one of the top 3 easiest mages, don't try to justify your scrubness with "but this god is actually hard to play!"
User avatar #19 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
I'm not saying she's hard to play, just that she's nowhere near the 'faceroll and carry team" levels of easy you're describing. If she were, good Scylla players wouldn't be so fucking rare and everyone would be playing that little abomination of nature, like they did with Freya, He Bo, Ao Dickhead or any other god that was easy and good. And the problem isn't just hitting her abilities, it's surviving it. Any hunter can kill her in two hits, most mages can do so in a single. Play against any semi-competent players and you're unlikely to have a KDR or more than 1.
User avatar #22 - attifyon (01/07/2015) [-]
I'm not saying she's faceroll level of difficulty, but she both has the capability to carry a game AND is considerably easier than most other mages that can. She is easy in the sense that unless you literally slam your hands on your keyboard and waste every single ability, you'll be fine. She has two escapes, a root and a slow, making it VERY easy to run away after a failed gank, unlike your "If you miss a single ability you die" statement. She can waveclear with a single skill and harass with her 1+autoattacks, and still back off with her 3 if things get too dire, making it really easy to win lane unless you get severely outplayed/focused by the enemy jungler. Not to mention the 80 magical power, 25% penetration and 12 MP5 she gets, which basically means that building her wrong does not really punish you unless you literally go full ADC with Fatalis, Demonic Grip and Telkhines' Ring.
If you're playing against a semi-competent player, and you're semi-competent yourself, you WILL have a KDR of at least 1, and most likely even 3.
User avatar #23 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
Yeah, but they almost always focus you. Or at least focus me. You have no idea how many games I've had recently where I was playing as Scylla and in a teamfight, their assassin would literally run past the rest of our team, who did nothing, jump me, kill me in half a second and then die, when our team finally remembers there's someone back there, use up all their abilities in an attempt to get an easy kill and then get slaughtered because they decided to completely ignore the enemy team in favor of that one kill. Same procedure every damn time. It's happened so much I get her a Polynomicon now in the vain attempt to increase her 1v1 capability and survive that.
User avatar #31 - attifyon (01/07/2015) [-]
Don't buy Polynomicon, but Witchblade if they're physical, and Voidstone if they're magical. Also Fist of the Gods can help if they don't have a CC immunity.
That alone should also show how dangerous Scylla can be; Janus' damage output is way higher but also easier to avoid, and I've never seen a Janus get focused to that extend for that same reason: if a Janus initiates, you might be in danger. If Scylla initiates, you are in danger. You'll either get affected by her 1, caught in her 2, get nuked by her ultimate because rest of your team already died to her 1 or 2, or possibly multiple of these at once. She is like Anubis, but harder to counter, and slightly harder to play.
#32 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
And semi-competent players know that all too well. If they have a Loki, Thor, Thanatos or any other assassin that can bypass the rest of the team, I may as well bend over and accept my fate, because I'll always be the one they focus. Yesterday I had a joust match, where the enemy team had a Loki. 9 of his 12 kills were me. Would have been more like 20 out of 23 kills if I didn't have an aegis.
User avatar #43 - ciacheczko (01/07/2015) [-]
You're the one they'll focus so expect it and be prepared for it. Like, throw your 2 straight under your feet instead of poking the enemy team. If they will dive, they will walk into a slow and are guaranteed to take decent damage. And they know it. Thor/Thana flying up, or Loki going invisible? Have 3 set up asap - use it to dodge them before they attack. Your Sentinel lasts longer than their flights/invisibility, so feel free to use it pre-emptively. It will discourage them. Scylla is nowhere near to being as easy to get as, e.g. Hel.

Assassins rely heavily on killing their primary target fast - but they also die easily and are extremely CC-vulnerable. Having fast-reacting Ymir or Athena by your side should be enough - if they are good and don't burn their CC for some overextended initiation, that is. And there's a considerable chance that, if you die a lot because of enemy assassin's successful dives, you have a team that can't peel for shit.

Then again, no miracle will save you if you are so paper that you die after 2 small crits. Any stray spell and AA can kill you, you can't dodge everything. I back the opinion that buying a Polynomicon against an assassin is a really shitty decision. You get armor against phys, simple. I personally prefer Midgardian Mail. Health, Armor, AS reduction and MS reduction in just one item? Sing me in for money well spent.

Pure offense is fine only for so long and if the enemy will hold you off past mid game, then their assassins and warriors will gear up and you'll get fucked.
#44 - thechosentroll (01/07/2015) [-]
Yeah, I already do most of that. You tend to learn it on your own while desperately trying not to die. However, I don't get any tanky items. I tried it and came to the conclusion that it's pointless on someone like Scylla. Playing as her is basically like playing dodgeball, except you're dodging wrenches. If you fuck up, you will die. It's as simple as that. The only way to prevent it would be to build multiple defensive items, which would render Scylla useless, because without her damage, all she has going for her is a little stun that most people dodge easily. Instead I go for the "the best defense is a good offense" approach, where I just don't let enemies get near me.

The reason I like Polynomicon is because of the passive. It's simple - I have 900 MP. When I see an assassin heading towards me, I throw down my 2 right in front of me, they jump at me, I use my 1, which roots them and does a shitton of damage, because of 2s' MP reduction, autoattack for 500+ damage and detonate the 2. Most assassins die after the autoattack. I can also use it offensively. Use my 3 to go near someone, autoattack, 1, 2, autoattack, detonate 2 if they're still alive (which they likely aren't). Without it she has literally no sustain whatsoever, so after she throws her 1 and 2, she has to either sit there and do nothing for 5 seconds or run away. The Polynomicon fixes that. Helps me play more aggressively.
User avatar #46 - ciacheczko (01/07/2015) [-]
Well I also get her a Polynomicon, but not as a defence measure. It's a good item for attack, but a shit-tier defensive item.

Mine is right now Eve as she starts with that amazing Whore of Babylon and she has that one heart to burn on Devil Deal unlike Judas that can't afford more than one without dying or having to spend soul hearts, I really like glass cannon characters, Azazel is also cool but he's so bloody powerful that playing as him feels like cheating, before Rebirth it was Cain, I still can't believe how raped he got by the Lucky Foot nerf, now he starts with nothing, one extra luck, that's all, he also got that damage and speed boost but Lazarus after he gets revived has identical boost, Cain is now a pushover, only Isaac without D6 is worse than him (And Blue Baby and The Lost but these are challenge chars so they don't count)

User avatar #12 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
In America at least there has been significant inflation and a small rise in prices for many goods. Beef Jerky for example. Video games is another. Part of the reason more money feels like less is because things are more expensive. 20$ used to be able to buy a brand new video game, now it can buy like 1/3 of one. Things have gotten more expensive, post 9/11 and the great financial crises are partly responsible for this.
#23 - apurpleliger (12/31/2014) [-]
Average inflation isn't anywhere near the video game market's inflation. If you want to compare specifics, it cost hundreds of dollars for flash drives with only a couple hundred megabytes years ago, and now you can get a 16 gigabyte flash drive for less than $20. That's some serious deflation right there.
User avatar #30 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
It's just an example, the cost of living has been rising quite significant in the past few decades The average rate of inflation is small but it adds up as the years go buy. Growing up is like almost two decades. There's a significant difference with money in the past and money now, especially accounting for price index and purchasing power. A lot of this is just basic economics. I plan to do this for a living man. Why would I take the time to explain otherwise.
#41 - apurpleliger (12/31/2014) [-]
Please explain where I'm wrong then.

www.usinflationcalculator.com/inflation/consumer-price-index-and-annual-percent-changes-from-1913-to-2008/
In 1993 the average CPI is 144.5
In 2013 the average CPI is 232.3975
Your premise is that it's plausible for inflation to devalue a dollar's worth by a factor of 10^-2. In other words, to reduce the value to 1% of the original.
So let's try that.
144.5/232.3975 = .622, or 62.2% of the original CPI 20 years ago. That's 61% higher than you're saying is plausible.
Now, sounds to me like 1/100th the price in 20 years is almost completely out of the question after looking at this.

Let's check using the Purchasing Power, now.
In 2013, the relative worth of $100.00 from 1993 is:
Using this calculator, www.measuringworth.com/uscompare/relativevalue.php, checking the relative worth of $100 in 1993 to 2013, we have these results:
$161.00 using the Consumer Price Index
$148.00 using the GDP deflator
$165.00 using the unskilled wage
$173.00 using the Production Worker Compensation
$200.00 using the nominal GDP per capita
$244.00 using the relative share of GDP
The highest is the las one using the relative share of the GDP, where the value of a single dollar is only 42% it's original.

Sounds to me like you either don't understand basic economics or you really just don't have a grasp on fractions and the implausibility of such a small fraction as 1/100 showing up. That would mean that something that cost $100 in 1993 would cost $10,000 in 2013. Since you say you plan on doing this for a living, I'm going to lean toward the latter option. 1/100 isn't just huge inflation, it's absolutely insane inflation, and completely unprecedented in a successful economy such as the US
#43 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
Er. I think we may have had some miscommunication. I didn't mean to say that the post was accurate about 20 dollars equaling a dollar that's insane. What I was trying to say is that in the time a person grows up, almost two decades, the purchasing power of say, $20 dollars inevitably declines. So part of the reason it feels like less, is because you can purchase less for your money.
#44 - apurpleliger (12/31/2014) [-]
Then I'll retract my red thumbs, but you should try to be more clear when you leave what appears to be a dissenting reply to someone saying 1/100th is ridiculous.
User avatar #45 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
If you carefully reread my replies I think you'll see that I was being rather clear about what I was talking about, but I suppose part of it is my own fault. I'll try to communicate better. There are a lot of misconceptions in this subject to begin with.
#46 - apurpleliger (12/31/2014) [-]
I mean if you had replied to anyone aside from the 1/100th guy it would have been fine, but replying to him with a dissenting comment implies that you're dissenting specifically to him.
#47 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
I never said he was wrong though. He was implying that his misconception was invalidating my original point. I was trying to clear up that misconception.
#50 - apurpleliger (12/31/2014) [-]
But the inflation is clearly not a contributor to the phenomena observed in OP's post, since, as he pointed out and I confirmed, the level of inflation is nowhere near the observed price difference, and plays a very minuscule role. $20 as a kid is worth $12 now, but both of those are huge amounts of money in the eyes of a child. That same $20 and $20 are very small amounts of money for adults.

Inflation is not the root cause, and is hardly a contributing factor. What would be better to say is that as we age, we tend to buy more expensive products. The products may increase in price due to inflation, but that's not the point. The point is for $20 you could buy $20 candy bars today, but you can only buy one or maybe two HDMI cables. The CPI goes up from inflation, but that does effect the relative cost of items, which is what OP was referring to.
#52 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
All I'm talking about is how the purchasing power of 20 bucks really is less than when you were a kid. And that part of the feeling of being able to buy less i that you are literally able to buy less. Not the "growing up" part of it.
#54 - apurpleliger (12/31/2014) [-]
You responded to OP saying "One word, inflation"

That implies that you are saying inflation is a cause of the phenomena observed by OP. I am saying that is not the case.
User avatar #55 - infinitereaper (12/31/2014) [-]
Would it have been more accurate to say the cost of living?
Also I don't see how inflation doesn't play a roll. OP was obviously exaggerating.
#71 - apurpleliger (01/01/2015) [-]
It's not about the time value of money at all, it's about relative value of money, so I would say no.
A young child today can buy a lot of entertaining things with $20, so $20 to them is like $100 to an adult.

The difference between an adult's purchasing power with $20 and a child's purchasing power with $20 is large because adults buy more expensive things. This is true even if you walked up to an adult and a child and gave them $20 at the same exact time. So if both have $20 at time 0, they both have the same value. They can both buy the same amount of candy bars, for example. But due to the relative expenses of items for adults and for children, $20 has significantly more relative value for a child than for an adult. A child is like "oh man, I can buy 20 candy bars with this!" and an adult is like "I mean, this is good and all, but I can only buy like two meals with it."

Personal example: 5 years ago $20 was a significant amount of money for me because I wasn't working yet and every dollar counted when I wanted to buy something. Now, I'll drop $20 on something without a second thought because it isn't that much money compared to the total amount of money I have.

So I guess you could think of it as a part of the whole. A child may only have $40 in savings, so getting a $20 bill constitutes a 50% increase in total money. For an adult, they may have $10,000 in savings, so getting a $20 bill represents only a .2% increase in total money.
