    I'm sticking to the theory that it was because they were having too many issues so they pulled it for now.

    I saw Gill once on my iphone while I was at work. He was offering a sale to buy the santas village and tree for 200. A 275 value. It had a ticker saying it would last for two days. After I went back on he was gone and it never appeared on my ipad when I got home. :?

    I don't think they will have completely got rid of him, as they have put all the effort of making his character. They might just include him in a later update as they feel there is enough stuff in the Christmas update.

    Who is this guy who looks into the update files btw?

    Seems reasonable to me. Whatever they did in the update, it seems to be working! No crazy blackouts recently. If they were prepared to offer a deal, I would think that they'd offer it (or something similar) at some point in the near future, when they are sure everything works properly again.

    It is odd that he was popping up in people's towns early, though. I wonder why? Code written wrong?

    If I remember correctly the next 25% off offer is meant to start on the 19th. So hopefully they fix him everything by then and re-enable him :cry:

    I think a lot of people (me included) are a bit iffy about getting santa's village, it's a cool thing to have to remember the xmas update but the actual cost is a little too much for what it does!

    Also there is a lot of cool premium stuff to go with the update, so a sale on donuts would tempt a lot of people. But of course if buying donuts is breaking the game frequently it'll be more trouble than it's worth.

    Defo going to be back up and running before 24th/25th I'd think, not like EA to miss out on a good moneymaker eh

    Did he have a voice, or is he like Fat Tony without a voice when you click on him?
