Normally, Nautilus’ special hook attack is only meant to ensare one enemy at a time. But thanks to the most annoying thing ever to show its face in League of Legends, one lucky player managed to trap four enemies at the same damn time.

That’s right. As YouTuber Miguel Pardinas showed in this silly short clip (via Reddit), League’s insufferable lag actually did something useful:

The funniest part about this to me is that while lag is indeed a persistent and irritating issues for many League players, it’s also something that always seems to show up so conveniently when someone accidentally does something incredibly embarrassing.

“Lag,” they always say after they accidentally fired some super-powerful special ability in the wrong direction. Suuuuuuure, I think to myself. Whatever you say.

By the same token, do you think players try and take credit for the awesome feats they accomplish thanks to lag’s unexpected boons? I don’t doubt it. But in this case, it’s hard to deny what caused the devastating play to unfold.
