Hey . I've downloaded the PBE files from the site , I extracted them to the League Of Legends folder , I launched the game and it started to update ... At 1st it was a 500 mb update so I said lets wait. But after this I got an 1390 mb update and I thought that it was trying to download LoL from scratch so I copied my LoL folder and extracted it in . I had an 150 mb update , so I thought "ok this is the Hecarim Update" but after this was finished it started downloading 1390 mb again...is it necessary to download it or there is another way to play?

P.S : I know that there probably are 100 posts about this but I couldn't find anything
Thanks in advance.

Hi there! The PBE uses a separate engine and files from the normal LoL Client because it contains new release material, so you will have to download everything again instead of just using the regular files.
