Why does nobody take Lil Oldman's tasks as a good source for training?

    Everyone dreads the 20 4+ Buildings, but I always took this as a way for training those gags that needed it. I get that it's repetitive and gets boring after about 7 of them, but it can get your gags leveled up pretty well after you finish all those buildings, especially if there's an invasion.

    I think the more annoying part of the task (for me, at least) is not the 20 buildings, but the hollywoods/cheeses/wigs/barons that you have to get over and over again. That part of the task I disliked because there wasn't much training involved, just a cog hunt.
    But I do agree with you that oldman's task is beneficial for training and showing you where you need to be gag wise before DDL.

    Not everyone lol. That part of his tasks is actually my favorite in comparison to recovering lumpy cheeses, gold teeth, etc.

    To me, aside from the opportunity to train gags, it means I'm nearly done with his tasks & close to getting the sixth track.

    Because there's a difference between choosing to train and being forced to do the same dumb thing 20 different times.

    There isn't any reason, but my point is that it's still morbidly dull to do the same thing 20 times in a row.

    You could break it up so you're not doing it all day or in one day. I know everyone gets excited to get that last track and wants to get the task over with, but there are ways to break up the monotony. I tend to do it in quarters or halves, but maybe it's easier for me to change things up because I have several alts in various stages of progress (I don't know what your playing style is as far as that's concerned). If I'm not in the mood to train gags, I simply pick a Toon who doesn't need to anymore or isn't focused on it at the time.

    Oh, no. The training part is great - I actually love the buildings and (hear me out on this) the Cog hunt for the big Cogs.
    It's the back-and-forth element that ticks me off, and the fact that the drop rates for items are quite sub-par. Nothing's more annoying than clearing a 5-story building during a Big Cheese invasion only to get a grand total of 0 Lumpy Cheeses.

    And where - I mean, where did they get the idea for the talking toad and his girlfriend? Jeez, just get him a Tinder already.

    The WHOLE POINT of LOM'S task was to train your gags, so they wouldn't be embarrassingly terrible for DDL. If you take a look at DDL Part 2/3 tasks, compare it to LOM, LOM is child's play.
    I always have max throw, squirt, rest level 5 before even attempting This task, and then before doing DDL everything is level 6+
    + Don't do brrrgh buildings for the 20 4s stories. That is why people take forever on it, I soloed it within 3-4 days on my soundless without lure. How? Donalds Dock Daisies Gardens, and MML. Alternate between them. It works.

    Personally, I don't think Lil Oldman's building aren't a waste of time, but an opportunity to train gags. I've done the buildings with small Cogs invasions (Cold Callers, Name Dropper and all that jazz!) and I had a lot of experience points !
    But the part of Lil Oldman's task which is boring is the lot of Hollywood, Cheese... you have to defeat before :imp:

    It's like the game wants me to level up my gags while I'm just like "Don't mind me, going into DDL without birthday cake".

    I never understood the hate Lil O got back in TTO, and that continues now. I didn't even know people hated him until I started joining ToonTown forums and there were entire threads dedicated to him. Back when I was doing all those tasks, I was having a lot of fun seeing all new cogs, making new friends, and training gags with them. It never felt too long or too tedious because I was always surrounded by other toons! But I understand how if you've done the tasks so many times or have no one to help you it would get annoying.
