The Second Cold War is a period of tension between USAball and EUball vs Russiaball over Ukraineball, and ISISball's growth in Syriaball and Iraqball. Also involves the South China Sea dispute between Chinaball and some of the ASEAN countries.


Tensions grew between Russiaball and Ukraineball when Crimeaball was anschlussed by Russiaball. Continuous protests in Eastern Ukraine took a violent turn and, with the first deaths occurring in Donetskball, the protests gave the start to a war.

The activities of Al-Qaedaball ceased. However, there was a new terrorist ball who soon became a big player: ISISball.

Several decades ago, Chinaball claimed the South China Sea by drawing nine lines. Now it has been clear that there is oil underneath the islands which are inside the nine lines, other countries around the sea claim the islands are theirs, because most of the islands are too far away from Chinaball's clay to be officially recognisable to be of Chinaball.


ISISball soon took over much of Syriaball's and Iraqball's clay, killed everyone who did not have its ideology and beheaded many of them.

In 2015, ISISball attacked the headquarters of a cartoon paper and a kosher supermarket on Franceball's clay. Several months after, the organisation attacked several spots of the clay of Parisball: a stadium where Franceball and Germanyball played a friendly match of football/soccer, several restaurants and streets, and most notably a concert hall, where dozens of people were massacred. Then, ISISball attacked Niceball, Berlinball among others.

This led to the increase of islamophobia in the Western world.

The fall of Mosul

The city Mosul in Iraqball's clay fell to ISISball after a war held by the terrorist group. USAball decided to fight against ISISball to take back the city.

Autonomous republic of Donetsk

After the Pro-Russian rebels won the war in Donetsk area and Luhansk, a de-facto Autonomous republic was established in Donetsk.

South China Sea

Chinaball and four ASEAN countries claim the Spratley Islandsball, politically controlled by Philippinesball, as well as ocean teritory that the UNball states belongs to Philippinesball, Vietnamball, and Malaysiaball. Japanball and Chinaball also claim Benham Riseball, also controlled by the Philippinesball.


  • Although Ukraineball and its rebels had a ceasefire, the conflict is far from being resolved.
  • Libya ball torn in to factions
  • ISISball is continuously expanding and killing civilians.
  • Russiaball claims full ownership of Crimeaball.
  • Russiaball decided to take it upon himself to remove ISISball, since no one else was doing much about it and he wanted Syriaball to win war. Turkeyball shot down one of his planes, leading to tensions between the two countries and between Russiaball and NATOball. Feeling the strain of Russiaball's sanction on tourism, Turkeyball eventually swallowed his pride and apologized.
  • A setback between Turkeyball and Russiaball's reconciliation occurred when a Russiaball ambassador was shot by a rogue Turkeyball, but this quickly ended. Iranball is suspicious of Turkeyball however.
  • A brief war erupted between Armeniaball and Azerbaijanball over Nagorno-Karabakhball, lasting four days before a ceasefire was reinstated. Azerbaijanball claimed he took back some of his clay but Armeniaball likely inflicted more casualties and didn't really care for the retaken land anyway. It may have been another proxy war between Russiaball and NATOball, but details are murky.
  • A shaky ceasefire was declared in Syriaball, and Russiaball removed most of his troops from the region.
  • It might lead to World War III, but then again, Cold War I didn't, did it?.
  • It is likely going to end because Trump and Putin are good friends and Trump may take measures to reduce NATO/EU influence, which is good for Russia's ambitions in Ukraine and Syria. The counter claim is that similar personalities and friendships won't guarantee good relations (The USSR and China in Cold War I hated each other). China is a separate story however.
  • Donald Trump has Basically dubbed North Koreaball, Iranball, and Venezuelaball as the "New Axis of Evil"
  • Republic of Syriaball recently took Mosul and Raqqa back from ISISball with the help of USABall.
  • Massive protests going in Venezuela-icon Venezuelaball
