On June 29, from 01:00 PT / 04:00 ET to 05:00 PT / 08:00 ET the servers will undergo maintenance to deploy Update 2.1.14.
Update from the previous version: SD—22.91 MB, HD—9.93 MB (in addition to SD).
The update will add a new Magpie Supply Crates to the game, which will be useful for players striving to get the most out of their aircraft. In addition, a new aircraft is joining the fleet: the P-38L Lightning, a Tier VI American Premium heavy fighter. It is modified to carry heavier rocket and machine gun armaments. Finally, we have fixed the Protection Expert and Aerodynamics Expert pilot skills.
Magpie Supply Crates will be added to the game. They will focus on materials and contain three guaranteed prizes: days of Premium Account, gold, materials, Free XP, consumables, or pilots with five skill points. You can purchase them in the Premium Shop or earn them as a reward for in-game activities.
Update 2.1.14 introduces a brand-new reward aircraft:
This is an experimental configuration of the valiant P-38 that has noticeably increased ground attack capabilities due to additional HVAR rockets. Also, the Lightning has increased potential in aerial combat thanks to three 15 mm machine guns that allow it to engage enemies from further afield.
To earn it, you'll have to take part in the marathon for the P-38L Lightning.
July will bring a new event to World of Warplanes. Complete marathon missions to get multiple prizes, including days of Premium Account, Steel Supply Crates, boosters, and much more. The main reward is the P-38L Lightning, an American Premium heavy fighter.
To speed up your progress through the marathon, you'll be able to skip missions for certificates.
Players who complete every mission of the July marathon and receive the main reward will also receive the memorable Test Pilot achievement.
