Cranberry I — 2004-09-11, Tyr's Own attempted the first blockade of Cranberry on behalf of Quixaroo, the former Azure governor of Cranberry. Facing a large defense from Silver Dawn and its allies, Tyr's Own only won the seventh round. Contender Trans-Atlantic Empire also only won one round.
Cranberry II — 2004-09-18, The Ruby Ring gained an unofficial new flag, Trans-Atlantic Empire. Assisting this flag heavily, TAE won the blockade in seven rounds. Tyr's Own contended after dropping a war chest in round four.
Cranberry III — 2004-10-02, While an epic blockade took place at Islay of Luthien, Robertdonald's alt flag Trans-Pacific Empire attempted to distract manpower from Carpe Noctem, one of three contenders at Luthien, by dropping a chest on Cranberry. After six rounds, the score was 3-3, but Luthien had recently finished. Facing a massive defense, Trans-Pacific Empire lost the next three rounds.
Cranberry IV — 2004-10-19, Sea The Constellation was a flag formed from the crew They Might Be Pirates, who had been expelled from Trans-Atlantic Empire. Aided by Robertdonald, the flag contended the first round, but dropped out to plan the next Cranberry blockade in round two.
Cranberry V — 2004-10-22, Cranberry became the first island to be blockaded five times; Cranberry V was contended by the alt flag DOOFIS in support of They Might Be Pirates. Tired of endless blockades, Trans-Atlantic Empire paid They Might Be Pirates and gave them a distillery shoppe, ending the disagreement.
