I just don't understand why it's taking this long, it's been 12 hours now and it's still not done, it would have been faster to re-download the whole game I think at this point. It's also the very first time this happened when switching regions for me. Note that I've already had 8.5 downloaded and I know that one was huge.

: Because there are massive backend updates going on to all the soundbanks in the game. So maybe it's not a full 7Gb download but a scan of all the files to compare to see if any need replacing. > When we re-patch all the audio banks in 8.5 you’ll see a patch ranging from around 1.8-2.2 GB total. This number will vary depending on your location since some regions have larger VO size than others. https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/riot-games/editorial/some-larger-patches-incoming

: I downloaded it, installed, and disabled everything in "Gaming", even restarted pc. After that my OS (windows 10) was updated. Still same error... Nothing changed.

After that my OS (windows 10) was updated. Still same error... Nothing changed. This sometimes happens to me when there's a new patch. I identified my problem being associated with Nvidia, although I have no idea what triggers it exactly. But whenever it happens, redownloading the latest Nvidia driver solves it.
: 7GB of downloads just after changing from EUW to NA then to EUW
Exact same thing happened to me just today. I tried switching to NA yesterday to play on my account there and it started a massive download. When I tried to switch back to EUW, I got a 17000 mb download, still downloading to this moment. Having capped internet, this is such a huge pain. This never used to happen before, I could switch back and forth without problems.

: Hello there, NourAdiga! Usually, the client only needs to download your region's files **once**. After that, you should be able to switch from region to region as often as you want without having to redownload everything. The only thing that may load a while is the client changing the files for your region. That might take a little. (Usually a few seconds though) And of course, you need to update **both regions** after every patch! I hope that I could help you, SUPPORT {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

When I tried switching back to EUW (main region) today it started scanning then started a 17000 mb download. Why's that? I've never had this issue before when switching regions.
