What is this 13GB download in LOL

I just started the LOL client and there’s this 0% bar on the top left. I hover over it and it says like 13562 MB left… I don’t really know what that is. Could anyone please clarify that? Thanks…

    The LOL installer is only updated every few months. In order to install the game for the first time, you will have to install all the patches and game updates that have rolled out since the last installer update after installing the (now outdated) “base” version of the game.

    This is a one-time download and you won’t have to download this much ever again unless you don’t update for a long time and then come back to your pre-installed game months later, at which point the client will download all the patches that have released since then, similar to what’s happening now.
