Due to server problems, the blockade of Wrasse on 2004-5-1 was aborted.
Wrasse I — 2004-5-8, Cold Steel won the original blockade of Wrasse.
Wrasse II — 2004-7-23, Pirates of Roundtable dropped a war chest on Wrasse. The blockade was declared sinking and Cold Steel easily defended in seven rounds.
Wrasse III — 2005-6-25, Notorious Fandango dropped a chest, but Cold Steel heavily outnumbered them and easily defended the island.
Wrasse IV — 2006-2-12, Rising Phoenix attempted to take Wrasse from Cold Steel. After a close start, the first round was won by a large margin by the defenders. In the break between rounds one and two, Cold Steel declared war back on the attackers, making it a sinking blockade. Rising Phoenix rose to the sinking challenge, but were ultimately vanquished before the end of the second round.
Wrasse V — 2006-3-18, Backlash attempted to take Wrasse from Cold Steel. Round one was was highly contested for the first half of the round. After that, Cold Steel settled onto the defensive incline and took round one comfortably. During round two Cold Steel gained around 100 jobbers more than Backlash in a appoximate 3-2 Ratio and Backlash while putting up a stiff fight could not displace Cold Steel Ships. By round three, the attackers decided to pull out and the island was successfully defended.
Wrasse VI — 2008-1-26, Riot dropped a chest to attack Wrasse. Cold Steel made the blockade sinking and defended in three rounds.
Wrasse VII — 2009-1-24, Blood and Roses dropped a chest to attack Wrasse. Cold Steel pulled out in round three.
Wrasse VIII — 2009-2-22, Cold Steel dropped a chest to attack Wrasse. Blood and Roses made the blockade sinking. Cold Steel was victorious in 5 rounds, with Blood and Roses winning rounds 1 and 3 and Cold Steel winning rounds 2, 4 and 5. It was a very tightly contested blockade with many of the rounds being decided by small margins.
As the initial governor, most of the island planning and layout was performed by Jinia. At the time, forts could not be upgraded into palaces directly—it was necessary to build them as two separate buildings. At the south corner of the inn, there is a pile of splintered wood where the old fort, Free Fort Five, was demolished.
Cold Steel as of the 23 of December 2008 hold the Record for the longest consecutively held Island without it changing hands- Wrasse. This Record was held by Tyr's Own who held Byrne for 4 years 8 months and 8 days until the flag were defeated at Byrne_XI. Cold Steel lost control of Wrasse on the 24 of January 2009, ending their streak at 4 years 8 months and 16 days.
