Gil is Annoying

With you there, he only appeared today and I am already tired of him. He is just a walking billboard to get us to buy doughnuts. By the way, does anyone know if the offer is a joke based on Gill's inability to close sales? I can't see anyone keen to get a free tree when they already have one and therefore can't see many people buying Santa's village if they don't already have it.

    I barely even notice him. He's not a problem.

    He just gets in my way when trying to assign tasks to characters which sucks. Other than that, no problems.

    I totally agree. I hope he stays on as a working character after christmas. But for now he is totally annoying and useless to ME.

    lol, for me the annoying thing is i cannot see my christmast total coin count if he still have his bubble, so everytime i check my city i must tap him first do the talk, and then i can see my coin, and then after checking my friend going back to mine, repeat the same thing which is pretty annoying

    I keep accidentally tapping on him. I've got all people set to complete at the same time, then I go around and click on each one to do new tasks. I keep clicking on him thinking he is one of my people because I'm not paying attention.

    Then I have to sit through his stupid dialogue!

    Gah.....that is annoying me.

    Why can't we just decline his offer and make him go away?

    I do NOT want that Santa's Village or another Christmas tree so get lost Gil unless you are going to offer me a significant discount on donuts or a new character. I'm not interested.

    Agree. EA needs to fix this issue so you can see the coin count before clicking on Gil.

    He must be designed to go where you touch the screen. It is pathetic to think EA needs to shove ol Gil in your face to get you to notice him and buy donuts.

    500 for $5 bucks. I feel like im campaigning for cryin out loud.

    Yes! Gil is beyond annoying. He just gets in the way, and it's multiple taps to get rid of the dialog box. If I could just decline the offer, I'd be ok with him, but it constantly refreshes, so it just never stops being annoying.

    I would like to be the first to request that they make it so our towns people can take Gil out of town and Stone him. There are other options of course; burning at the stake, burried alive in an ant pile, skinned alive...etc. Anything to get him the **** out of my town.

    I get that theyre trying to be funny with the guy but he keeps coming right to the middle of my screen all the time and he seems to always place himself in the spot just where Im doing something so that I accidentally tap on him and then I hafta keep tapping to get outta the dialogue boxes. I dunno man.......I know nobody is gonna agree with me cause the consensus Ive seen is that people find him funny......I just plain think hes annoying. A game making this much money shouldnt hafta beg for more but hey what do I know about marketing right..........u got guys using $50 itunes gift cards to get premium content so they must be doing something right.

    Kill Gil vols. 1 & 2 they need to send stupid old Gil back to scottsdale Arizona or kill him off. maybe kang could take him away and cook him

    200 donuts is a LOT of real money. I'm not interested, ESPECIALLY at this time of year. It's a Christmas update so it SHOULD have been an option to buy with Santa Coins.

    I haven't seen the saucer in my, or any of my friends' towns, but if there is an invisible Kang/Kodos flying around in my neck of the woods, I wish he'd shoot Gil.

    The most-recent small update "fixed" him. He begs, but the balloon no longer remains on the screen. He's MUCH better now.

    OH, is that why the coin count occasionally disappears?! I was wondering...good to know.

    I keep accidentally tapping on him when quickly assigning tasks...I just see a person walking around nor doing anything and automatically think he needs a task. No big, but a bit annoying.
