Whether this time period is a true cold war or not is still up for debate.


Tensions grew between Russia-icon Russiaball and Ukraine-icon Ukraineball when Crimea-icon Crimeaball was annexed by Russiaball. Continuous protests in Eastern Ukraine took a violent turn and, with the first deaths occurring in Donetsk-icon (Ukraine) Donetskball, the protests gave the start to a war.

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

Several decades ago, China-icon 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 recognizable to be of Chinaball.


ISISball and Indon soon took over much of Syria-icon Syriaball's and Iraq-icon Iraqball's clay, borkedkilled everyone who did not have its ideology and beheaded many of them.

In 2015, ISISball attacked the headquarters of a cartoon paper and a Israel-icon kosher supermarket on France-icon Franceball's clay.

Then, ISISball attacked Nice-icon Niceball, Berlin-icon Berlinball among others.
