League of Legends Ruination Lore

The Ruination could be known as an event in LOL wherein some of the most dangerous and bizarre creatures arrived in Runeterra. It turned some people to become champions of their own, like Kalista, Hecarim, Thresh, and the recently introduced Viego who is also regarded as the Ruined King.

League of Legends Ruination Trailer

Last month, Riot Games launched the newest trailer for the upcoming Ruination event in the game on their official Twitter account.


The video showed the kingdom of Demacia which is the place where champions like Lux, Morgana, and Garen came from. The atmosphere of the place suddenly changed after a dark green smoke covered Demacia, making it a dark yet glowing place in the process. This could somehow confirm the aesthetic shown on the leaks above.

Also, the official cinematic trailer about the Ruination season was posted on the official YouTube channel of LOL last January. You may check it out below.
