Papaya I - 2004-05-05, Bloody Seas (a part of the Crimson Tide alliance) and Rudder Hell contended for Papaya in a brutal twelve rounds. The two contenders both won six each, and Papaya remained unclaimed.
Papaya II - 2004-05-07, the alt flag Ayliv declared an "event blockade" on the island, but during round 1, Rudder Hell dropped a war chest, making themselves a contender. The blockade was planned to be non-sinking (even though Papaya was an uncolonized island), but that did not happen. The blockade was abandoned by the contenders, leaving it uncolonized. Afterwards, Papaya was taken off the list of blockadeable islands for "a little bit"; it reopened 2004-11-05.
Papaya III - 2004-11-06, in a hotly contested blockade, Don't Panic won Papaya in nine rounds. Pennsuedo, the former head of Rudder Hell (also known as Rudder Revolution and, at the time of the Papaya III blockade, Equinox), led the unofficial defense forces attempting to keep Papaya uncolonized. His goal was apparently just to sink ships, and the defenders managed to win two rounds during the early morning of November 7. The other contender for Papaya, Technicolor Armada, and Equinox combined forces after the first set of 3 rounds.
Papaya VIII - 2008-11-30, Don't Panic successfully defended against Broadsiders in a four round sinking blockade.
Papaya IX - 2008-12-06, Don't Panic defended against Broadsiders in a three round sinking blockade.
Papaya XI - 2009-05-03, Spirit of the Game attacked Don't Panic once again, losing in another three round sinking blockade.
Papaya XII - 2009-05-24, Don't Panic defeated Spirit of the Game in a third three round sinking blockade.
