Things got a bit weird in the League of Legends
community last night when a hacker took over Riot Games
president Marc Merrill's
Twitter account. The intruder, working under the sinister alias, "Jason," used the opportunity to out League of Legends: Supremacy
, a collectible card game built from the League of Legends
In a series of tweets from Merrill's account, the hacker posted images and files related to the project including card art and the main sign-in page for the game. According to "Jason," Supremacy
was fully completed but never announced or revealed to the League
community. Riot did trademark the Supremacy
name last year, lending credence to the hacker's claims.
Marc Merrill eventually recovered control of his account, noting, "We're always working on a variety of new ideas for League
and beyond. Lots of experimentation that may never see the light of day."
Make of that what you will.
