President and co-founder of Riot Games, Marc Merrill, had his twitter account hijacked over the weekend where false messages were posted announcing 'League of Legends: Supremacy' as a card game.
It was trademarked by Riot a year ago. Screens were shared showing a log-in screen and card templates. Merrill regained control and confirmed Supremacy was a prototype.
