League of Legends game replay file description
The rofl file extension is nowadays best known for its use as the default game replay format in League of Legends multiplayer online battle arena video game (LoL). ROFL, in this context, is an abbreviation for Replay OF LoL.
Unfortunately, there is currently no easy and convenient way to share the replays (rofl files) directly from the game client. Players can only playback of their replays and save them in WEBM format (playable in VLC).
The most crucial aspect of rofl files is that they only work for one patching cycle, meaning replays saved in version 6.23 will not be playable in version 6.24.
Typically, recordings older than one month are rarely found on various LoL replay sites.
Only the last 20 replays are saved in the League of Legends client.
Note: It seems that this file type replaced all the previously used types (.lrf, for example) used by some 3rd party programs.
