The League of Legends (LoL) Hextech Expo, an exhibit based on the LoL Netflix animated series Arcane, at ION Orchard, was "destroyed" as part of Riot's promotional activities on Wednesday (17 November).

A "closure notice" at the exhibition from the fictional city of Piltover's council was also posted. Riot added that the other exhibits in Paris, France; London, the United Kingdom; Madrid, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; and Los Angeles, the United States had been similarly "destroyed".

League of Legends and those who've already watched Acts 1 and 2 of Arcane will pretty much know the supposed culprit behind the "destruction".

If not, here's a clue, a "Riot spokesperson" in their previous press release had initially said, "I don't want to jinx it..."

Well played, Riot Games. The "destruction's" aftermath is still available to see at B1 in ION Orchard, in case you're hoping to get some shots for the gram.

In LoL and Arcane, Piltover is known as the city of progress that has harnessed the power of magic through Hextech. 

The technology is also one of the driving forces of Arcane's story, both able to drive progress when used well and also wreak chaos in the wrong hands.

Riot Games had initially called the Hextech Expo a "connected experience for fans" that will allow them to get insights into the world of LoL and Arcane outside of the game and show.

Here's a look of what it was like before the "destruction".

Arcane premiered globally on Netflix and Tencent on 6 November, with its first two acts now available for viewing. The third and final act of the show will be released on 20 November.
