Why does updating the game require so much in downloads?

I'm confused why every update I have to download first 5gb, then another ~13gb. This seems... excessive and on our 40mbps connection it takes a very long time. It seems this way for both the PTS as well as main clients.

Is this normal? Is there a way to avoid downloading so many things every time?

I would try updating your client more frequently, because the most recent patch, 0.6.14.2, was less than 500mb...

WG CDN only keep:

The full client files of current version of the game

The full installation of current big update of the game

The incremental updates from previous big update.

 

So, if you missed out 2 big update, you're forced to download the whole new client
