The Second Founding marked the first wave of new teams to enter the 4chan Cup. Technically, the four new teams were not expansion clubs, but instead replaced teams relocated due to lack of fan support after the 2011 4chan Summer Cup. The Second Founding teams' first competition was the 2012 4chan Winter Cup. All of the "relocated" teams bar /adv/ (disqualified due to having an incomplete roster) would later be reformed for the 2012 4chan Spring Babby Cup.
- As of the conclusion of the 2018 4chan Summer Cup, two Second Founding teams have won a cup (/tg/ in the 2015 4chan Winter Cup and /jp/ in the 2016 4chan Autumn Babby Cup), the third least of any founding (above the three most recent Foundings, who have won none).
- As of the conclusion of the 2018 4chan Summer Cup, the Second Founding teams have a total of five "medal" finishes; 2 first place finishes, 2 second place finishes, and 1 third place finish.
- As of the conclusion of the 2018 4chan Summer Cup, /tg/ have the highest efficiency out of this Founding at 44.55%, while /jp/ have the lowest at 36.9%.
