Weihnachten 2020 bei Big Bait


Ahoy sailors,

November is coming to an end and so our big Christmas event is just around the corner again.

With the start of the event you can play the mini-game "Ice Net" to earn ice crystals for the Christmas market and open a door in the Advent calendar every day (from December 1st). In addition, you can produce more crystals on the Christmas Islands.

Before we go into the individual features, here is the schedule, so that you can keep track of all the times:

11-27-2020 - 09:00 am (CET)

12-24-2020 - 12:00 pm (CET)

(exchange remaining crystals, open forgotten days in the calendar, continue exchanging company orders)
until 12-24-2020 - 12:00 pm (CET)


Advent Calendar

From the first of December you can open a door from the Christmas calendar every day and you will receive a random surprise. Missed doors can also be opened for gold bars.

The 3 possible rewards are hidden in the 3 bags and you can choose one of them. The reward of the selected bag is now yours. If you would like to receive the other rewards of the day, you can open a 2nd bag for 2 gold bars and a 3rd bag for 5 gold bars.


Ice Scoop Netting

You can reach the event "Ice Net" via the new object in your home port.


Here you can use fish nets that jump out of ice holes to obtain ice crystals, which you can trade for rewards at the Christmas Market.

You'll have 100 stamina to do this. Each time you swing your landing net, this will cost you 10 stamina. Your stamina will regenerate by one point every minute. The endurance can also be recharged for gold bars.

Once you have earned 10 catches, they are automatically converted to ice crystals.


Exchange Market

In the Christmas Shop you can exchange your hard-earned ice crystals for useful items such as items, paints and ships. We also offer special offers on Advent days, where you can take advantage of special offers with gold bars. You can find the exchange market on the Christmas Islands in the Christmas Factory. From the Postevent you can reach it via the icon in the upper right corner.

There are 6 rewards available at the Christmas market:

The Resource Package
Costs: 15 Ice Crystals

The resource package contains credits and experience points. The amount of credits and experience points is calculated based on the player level.

The Recycling Points
Costs: 40 Ice Crystals

Here you get 25 recycling points for the Baufhof.

The angel figure
Costs: 50 Ice Crystals

The angel figure is an item that you can only get during the Christmas event. It increases the storage capacity as well as the working speed by 30%.

The Paint - Christmas Spell
Costs: 120 Ice Crystals

The paint changes the appearance of your ship to that of a Christmas sled and improves status values (storage capacity and ship experience) by 15%.

Christmas Islands

On the Christmas Islands you will find several harbours that will help you catch the rare Christmas fish

In order to be able to use a port, one must first unlock it. You can unlock the first port for free. You can choose which port you want to unlock first. Each port you unlock will automatically have a ship sailing and fishing for you.


  1. for free
  2. 20 ice crystals oder 25 gold bars
  3. 40 ice crystals oder 50 gold bars


You can motivate the harbour with gold bars. Then you get a 10 ton bonus on the fish for the 10 minutes. At irregular intervals you have the opportunity to receive a 3 minute bonus for free. So check out the islands every now and then, because it's worth it!


Each port can be upgraded to level 5. In the following table you can see how long the expansion will take, how many ice crystals will be needed for the expansion and how many tons you will get after the expansion when the ship delivers.

You can also give a present to your company during the Christmas season and take care of the new Christmas orders at the port authority. To do this, you simply pay in the gifts you find in the port orders. The amount of the order depends on the number of members. After a Christmas order has been completed, a new one is automatically generated.

You still want to give your company the right Christmas look? Then you can do it now! Enhance your company with decorations that are only available during the Christmas season.





Mit nautischem Gruß,
Euer Big Bait Team
