A League of Legends trailer was accidentally shown during the Brazilian Championship stream and—as we all know—once the genie is let out of the bottle, it’s impossible to get him to go back in.  The trailer is quite good—showing a cinematic dominion battle on the Crystal Scar—but Riot never intended for the trailer to be shown.

Riot clarified things on reddit stating, “Hey guys, just a heads up, this was an unfinished prototype we ended up not moving forward with. Due to a small miscommunication associated with assets for the stream in Brazil it ended up being utilized unintentionally. Sorry for the confusion. Glad you thought it was cool though.”

After watching the trailer, there’s only one thing to say:  Nerf Lux.

    And why didn’t they want this to be seen? It’s freaking amazing.

      “Hey guys, just a heads up, this was an unfinished prototype we ended up not moving forward with”

      They didnt want it shown because its not something that they are doing anymore and they are not going to release it.

         But the question is, a prototype for what?

        Looks pretty awesome as far as cinematics go.

    I want to see a developer to come out with a game that plays like it does in the cinematic scenes,  Then I’d say that would be bad ass Fluid and All.  Over all the Trailer looks Sick, regardless if it was done with intent or not.  Its Still a Sick Trailer.

    they all started with boots :)

    hmm, good trailer.. just some minor issues i picked up

    1) WTF happened to Miss Fortune (she disappeared)
    2) Why Teemo.. -.- (lemme guess, to promote another Teemo skin release)
    3) Ryze?.. Again.. Lame..
    4) Irelia dying to Cassiopeia, possible, highly unlikely 
    5) Quickest match of dominion ever :p

    Overall good trailer.. Just boring and typical..
    Malphite.. lol..

      Oh stfu. I enjoyed it. Ppl will enjoy it. Riot is fucking awesome. Get down with Riot or lay the down. Plus they used the teemo part in the begining of Season Two Trailer.

        Lol! && this is a great example of one of those trolls on LOL. Orion didn’t ask if you enjoyed it or not. He was expressing him opinion. Riot isn’t awesome anymore cause trolls && idiots (like you) took it over. Get down with riot or lay down?!?! omg point proven! Noob…..

        • http://www.facebook.com/Lou.Is.De.Nerd Louis Dennard

          If he can express his opinion about Riot then so can I about his comment. Riot is great. Even their gayest champion (Taric) is awesome. Riot is destroying all competition. League of Legends is the most played game right now. So you can lay down. Plus im not a troll. A troll throws the game. Im the guy who isnt afraid to tell you that u sux and you it… Do. Sux.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alia-Peters/100000362080137 Alia Peters

      Totally agreed. 
      The team with Malphite would kick ass over the other, hands down.

      • Morturion

         Correction, the team with Mordekaiser would kick ass over the other, hands down.
        (its the same team, I know ;)

    • Angello Maggio

      lol this guys is such a whiny bitch, the trailer was good, it’s supposed to be exciting not completely like the game

  • http://www.facebook.com/tony.golightly Tony Golightly

    is this a trailer for LOL 2? game feels completely different then this trailer represents.

    • Orion Peters

      Its dominion when the original trailer was 5v5 summoner rift..

  • http://www.facebook.com/ricky.nguyen.16 Ricky Nguyen

    why isnt the video working???

  • Steven Thompson

    then why did they release it, things just dont get linked unless one of the people making it wanted it leaked. Studies show that if it say “leaked” more people will watch something because it’s not supposed to be seen. 

    • Orion Peters


      riot should be a little more original -.-

  • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.bruce.982 Kevin Bruce

    Simply amazing.  Great trailer! should definitely have been released lol and yes, Nerf lux! haha

    • Orion Peters

      lol anyone who claims to nerf lux comes off as a noob to me..

      by far she gets stomped by so many AP carries.. 
      shit, ashe mid could wipe the floor with lux..
