Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Rio Days-Inn-Ero or Fatov?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time for Heisting in Springfield!  New event means all new content, and of course loads of returning content! Lots of items to drop those sprinkles on…

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Returning Rio Days-Inn-Ero or Fatov to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Leaves stores May 4th

Item: Rio Days-Inn-Ero
Cost: 100 Donuts, Rebate 50 Donuts, NET 50 donuts.
Previous Post: Should I Buy
Earns: income every 4hrs
What Does It Do:
 Another building for Springfield.  Krusty does have a  permanent 24hr task there. (Score a Room)
My Opinion On It Now: 
Meh, I’m not a huge fan of it, but with the rebate, it’s not terrible.  So if you like it grab it.  Otherwise, pass.

Leaves Stores May 9th 

Fatov will hit stores at 10a ET today…

Item: Fatov
Cost: 50 Donuts
Previous Post: Details
What Does It Do: Full character for Springfield, comes with complete tasks.  
My Opinion On It Now:
 Fatov is one of those little characters that cracks me up.  Mostly because it’s Homer’s mouth upside down.  50 donuts is a fair price to pay.  If you missed out when he was free, it’s not a bad pickup at all.

What are your thoughts on the returning items?  Will you be spending donuts to bring any of these throwbacks to your Springfield?  Why or why not?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Rio Days-Inn-Ero or Fatov ?

    I guess if you have both of these (I do), it’s a biased decision on what’s worth spending Sprinkles on (a discounted Building with a rebate – especially one that offers a permanent Task for Character(s) – seems like a better deal to me). 👍

    Fatov is voiced, but he doesn’t do much (not even a Task in Krustyland – then again there are plenty of new Characters that don’t have a Task here). 🤷‍♂️

  2. I like the pun on the Days in Eiro and wanted it the first time around but couldnt bring myself to spend the donuts on it ( like the feed and seed) but with the rebate, it’s now rounding out my South American section of Springfield nicely.

  3. I thought Fatov was a kid drowning in a very huge pair of pants. Hahaha.

  4. Alias de la plume

    What are Ribbons for and why does Fatov earn them for 3 hr task

  5. Regarding Fatov, he has this 3 hours task that earns a ribbon and some XP. Is that a bug or something will come up when I’ve accumulated enough ribbons? Wonder if others who got ‘him’ solo for 50 donuts has that ribbon at 3 hours task? I don’t believe I’m affected by the rollback bug…since that’s the only one that I’m perplexed….
    Thank you…

    • Sounds like you have been hit with the known rollback glitch….

      The only fix currently is to have your game rolled back to the last day you game was working correctly. You need to be polite BUT FIRM in demanding EA rolls back your game.

      Look here for my guide on how to get your game fixed…. HERE…

      • My Fatov has the same 3 hour but it isn’t preventing me from playing the game like the bug/glitch has with others where the game is unplayable because of it.

    • The Fatov bug has been fixed. Now the 3 hours task (exercise) earns 260/70. I originally reported it as a bug rather than ask for the rollback because after reading many horror stories that those who got the rollback, their town hasn’t been the same. And I knew it was more of a bug than rollback issue because Fatov was working fine, just originally the ribbon instead of $. Just FYI

  6. I bought him . I missed him during the event because I has only been playing for a month when it came out. Everything pre Super hero 2 ,I didn’t get.

  7. I like Fatov because he reminds me of Homsar. 🙂

  8. I had the building from a box, but i agree with Alissa, kinda meh. Fatov i got for free at some event. Not that bad, but he needs a 1 hour job.
    I like it that the previous free characters now become premium.

  9. I find Fatov to be genuinely disturbing to look at…he looks like an evil muffin come to life, and then that makes me hungry for muffins

  10. Get a grip EA.
    Sort the F-in glitch out.

  11. Is anyone having terrible glitches? The IRS radius got super small, the monorail and find maggie got reset (monorail even says I finished all the tasks). If you tap the event goals it goes to another page. It all happened with a new pie man task (it even unlocked the daily prize, when you logged in for five days in a row and got a mystery box)

    • UGH….
      Anyone else not reading the voluminous blog posts on the “Rollback Glitch?”

      Yes. You have it. Call EA…

      • omnipotentwiz

        i read it…

      • What’s this rollback glitch? I’ve never heard of it. Is it new? What impact does it have in the game? Should I be worried? Should I call for help? Is TSTO done forever? Is the world ending? Should I just end it all? Oh God! Oh No! What should I do?

        • It has been around for months but it is random if someone gets it or not. It is a nasty bug that makes the persons game unplayable because it is tripping old events that they can’t do a thing with.

      • Omg, I so feel for you moderators. Trying to patienly answer the same topic over, over and over again. I see you Alissa and Patric, and I appreciate you- no end. ❤

  12. I already have Fatov but not the rio days inn and am not being offered it. I am being offered Mexican Duffman bundle, Senor Ding Dong, and Mexico flag.

  13. I got Bumble Bee Man for 60 donuts with 50 donut rebate. 10 donuts WOOHOOOO!

  14. I got the hotel in a mystery box on Black Friday but the rebate now (50% discount) much better than it was offered before. Fatov is a fun character to have in the game but I wish he had a solo 1 hour task that doesn’t require Homer and I think his task with Homer also requires the Springfield Games Podium so I believe his 1 hour task would be locked if anyone doesn’t have the Podium.

    Already have Fatov and love him, he’s one of my favorites!! ☺
    Most likely skipping the building simply because I am hanging onto donuts; with the rollback glitch chaos, I’m not spending any real money right now just to be safe. Hope EA isn’t trying to end the game, I’m a long time player and will stay until the very end but am very leary about investing cash now.

  16. I’m conflicted with Fatov for his lack of 1hr job :-/

    • And the fact that he is a dancing blob doesn’t bother you? LOL!

      • Let’s be honest, we’ve seen aliens, mutants, space blobs and wiccans: a dancing upside-down mouth is nothing special XD

      • I love that he is a dancing blob, a throwaway gag from one episode to which the producers nonetheless elected to devote an ending scene with him dancing the Trepak with Homer. 😀

  17. I really wanted to return the other items from Brazil, such as Ronaldo and Xoxchitla. Maybe in a future Mystery Box.
    I have Fatov since the first time he came to our game for free, and I say to anyone who is in doubt whether or not to buy that is worth the penalty, he is a very cool and voiced character

    • ydouneed2know

      The original post probably says this, but for emphasis: The only 1 hour task fatov has is joint with Homer. This can be troublesome if Homer is part of an event or if you’re like you me you have several premium skins for Homer. Of course if you never use 1 hour tasks disregard.
