Actually, it is Riot Games. The basic chonology is:
  • The original DotA map is made.
  • Guinsoo takes the original DotA versions and makes DotA Allstars, which I believe is still the reigning DotA franchise on WC3.
  • Some guys get the idea to make a stand-alone game that's the spiritual successor to DotA.
  • These guys get Guinsoo to join them and make Riot Games.
  • Riot makes LoL.

I could get specific dates for a lot of these things, but the order is what's relevant here.

One of the main devs is Icefrog. He also was one of the main devs on DotA as well.

The only thing I head about RIOT and LoL is that LoL was bought by Riot for tons of money.

You mean the name/abbreviation or sth. ?

If you actually mean the game your source is quite off...

I think xIchi is referencing the company that bought Riot.

IIRC They are owned by some Chinese company now?

Backed, not owned, but Tencent owns a majority stake. So they certainly aren't fully independent ala Valve.
