Why do I have to patch EVERY TIME I open the launcher?

I opened the launcher for the third time right now, and it's patching. I opened it about 7 hours ago and it patched for at least 45 minutes, then again three hours or so after that when the server was online, and it took an hour to patch. It's been patching right now for about 10 minutes, at 40%. Am I going to have to sit through at least half an hour of patch EVERY TIME I want to play? And why does it patch every time anyway?

Edit: This only happens with the PBE launcher; the regular launcher works fine.

same thing happened to me.

I tried to reconnect to a game, because after load screen, it showed black.

Had to repatch, and I wasn't going to wait again... back to live realm.

... did you extract the folder from the zip? Or are you trying to play through the zip?

I had that problem too, extract the folder and it'll fix the issue.

Thanks, I feel like such an idiot, I know this stuff. Apparently I don't

I extracted the entire "League of Legends Public Beta" folder onto my desktop. I open the folder, double click the exe (not admin) and every time it patches.

Try putting it in your main (usually C) drive one level deeper than the usual LoL folder (just make a new folder to put it in if you don't have a folder you made yourself already). (at first I had it in the same level as my folder for my normal client and when I tried to play a game on the normal client, it went bat**** crazy on me, lol)
