Endurance III — 2005-03-13, After a declaration of war on Zeta Island and Endurance by the Ruby Ring flags (Looterati, Silver Dawn, No Homers, and Carpe Noctem), the alt flag Scallywag Syndycate reciprocated by blockading Islay of Luthien and Jorvik Island. Notorious Fandango also dropped a war chest; they won rounds 3 and 4 before facing a massive onslaught from No Homers in round 5. No Homers won the island.
Endurance V — 2006-04-29, Backlash took control of Endurance in a three round non-sinking blockade. They won the first two rounds by a large margin. The third round saw an early lead by Heavens Aligned, but Backlash caught up and overtook HA to take the island.
Endurance VI — 2007-05-12, Backlash, no longer able to keep up with the day-to-day running of the island and little interested in retaining control, enlisted the help of Tyr's Own to coordinate a defense of their island against Spirit of the Game. Spirit of the Game gained control by winning the blockade in three rounds.
Endurance VII — 2007-07-01, Jinx led by the Brigand King Gretchen Goldfang blockaded the island. Spirit of the Game succesfully defended the island after a harsh battle in a five-round blockade. Gretchen's forces were initially defeated in round two, but the Ocean Masters added more ships to her force at the request of Spirit of the Game.
Endurance IX — 2007-12-16, Blood and Roses, seeking to restore economic viability to Endurance after seven months of tyrannical taxation, easily defeated Azarbad the Great in three rounds to take control of the island.

Endurance XII — 2010-11-06, Blood and Roses successfully retained control of the island against the Brigand King Barnabas the Pale. Blood and Roses did not defend but an unknown third party flag mounted a defense in their place, defeating the Brigand King's forces.
Endurance XIII — 2011-11-27, Blood and Roses successfully defended the island against Azarbad the Great.
