Ansel Island was originally located on the Viridian Ocean. A rock east of the fort reads, "This island were fashioned by Tamsin."

The island featured in the 2008 Halloween events — during the event, pirates who visited the island would be turned into ghosts, and it contained the third hint for solving Vargas the Mad's riddle.

Blockade history

Ansel I: 2006-02-11, Imperial Coalition took the island in a three-round blockade against Choking Hazard. Imperial Coalition took the first two rounds, many points ahead. Choking Hazard admitted defeat toward the end of round two.

Ansel II: 2007-06-16, Imperial Coalition successfully defends the island from Azarbad the Great and The All-Consuming Flame in the first ever Brigand King blockade on the Viridian Ocean in a four round sinking blockade. Initially the Azarbad's fleet strength was listed at a power of 2 but at the request of the Imperial Coalition the Ocean Masters sent in additional waves of ships.

Ansel III: 2007-09-23, Imperial Coalition again successfully defends Ansel island from Azarbad the Great and The All-Consuming Flame in a three round sinking blockade. This time around the fleet of The All-Consuming Flame was rated at a power of eight. Imperial Coalition fielded a very strong fleet and was able to completly control the blockade, sinking The All-Consuming Flame fleet by the end of round two as well as a handful of War Frigates of Shadow Knights brought into the blockade with the intent of targeting Imperial Coalition ships. The All-Consuming Flame did not seriously contest round three.

Ansel IV: 2008-03-18, Imperial Coalition defended the island from The Enlightened in a five-round sinking blockade.

Ansel V: 2008-08-03, Imperial Coalition failed to defend Ansel island from Yggdrasil. Both sides fielded strong (War Frigate based) fleets, but Yggdrasil won in straight rounds. The first round was won by a margin of around 300 points, the second round being an excellent closely fought battle, with Yggdrasil just edging it after the last turn. The final round was contested by Imperial Coalition, who played their best throughout the Blockade, but the round eventually went to Yggdrasil, to complete a fine blockade.

2008-10-19, Yggdrasil transferred the island to The Fear inside.

Ansel VI: 2008-12-7, Tainted Purity took the island in a three-round non-sinking blockade. Sea Wrath defended on behalf of The Fear inside, and The Mighty Booch also dropped a chest, but did not contend.

Ansel VII: 2009-1-31, Vanguard took the island in a three-round sinking blockade. Tainted Purity did not defend.

Ansel VIII: 2009-03-21, Imperial Coalition took the island in a three-round sinking blockade. Tainted Purity contested on behalf of Imperial Coalition.

Ansel XIV: 2011-02-20, Legacy and Heisenberg's Uncertainty attacked in an arranged blockade to test pay, jobber, and ship caps. Subtle Tease defended 3-1.
