    Tracking Wins/Losses and Rating
    If you want to have wins/losses/streaks/rating/ kd-ratio and leaderboards that is done through my other plugin BattleTracker which handles all stats.

    Information Collection
    BattleArena uses bStats for stat tracking. bStats is completely anonymous and only tracks basic information about your server, such as how many players are online, what server software you're running, etc. This can be disabled in BattlePluginsAPI/config.yml

    This plugin checks for new plugin release versions which can be disabled in the BattleArena/config.yml

    You can ask us questions in real time on Discord when we're around. Please stick around if you don't get an answer right away. Most of us have lives and only check Discord occasionally. :)



    This plugin was Originally Developed by: alkarinv , lDucks , and rasnyderiii over at The Battle Arena page. All credits for the original BattleArena go to them. :)


    Please do not put bug reports, inquiries, errors, or issues in the reviews section. Please open a new issue on GitHub, use the discussion thread, or join the Discord server if you need help.

    -Players keep losing their inventory when they do /arena join.
    -They sometimes fall out of the world when joining a waiting room.
    -The statistics don't work at all. No matter how many game are won, they always show a 0/0 win-lose ratio.

      Hey there! We appreciate the feedback, however please refrain from posting feedback / bugs in the Reviews and use the discussion thread instead as that is the way Spigot likes things.

      1. Lost Inventory - This is usually because of 3rd party inventory management plugins are conflicting with BA. Please open a support ticket so we can fix this conflict.

      2. Same as above, please open a ticket. This seems to be custom to your setup and we would need more details to investigate.

      However, you can try proactivity fixing this by adding `teleportYOffset: 0.0` to your BA config.yml.

      3. All statistics are run / managed through our BattleTracker plugin that handles all death / life / arena events. Please see here:

      Please open / create a GitHub issue here:

      Thank you!

    Seems to work really good. Need some more intense testing but seems like exactly the plugin wich was missing on spigot. really easy to set up an arena and the devs respond in an instant on their discord.

    Going have to give this plugin another +100. Absolutely outstanding in terms of customisation, backwards support and it's development API . Many thanks to the developers that have allowed me to be able to assist with the continuation of the project. This is a must-have for any server and I recommend it for everyone! =)

    OMG LOL!!! I thought this was a dead plugin... I used to use this years ago, these guys are amazing at developing plugins. This is the best mini-game creator plugin I've ever used (i haven't used that many, but still lol)

    Best arena plugin known to minecraft. Incredibly easy and modular and very easy to develop custom plugins that hook into it.

      You're totally right! We strive to make BA (and associated plugins) as modular and multi use as possible; Thanks for the review and hitting the nail on the head!
  8. Redned
    Been using this plugin since the days of alkarin, and still to this day it outclasses any other plugin of it's kind. Limitless customization and an easy-to-use developer API. This is a must-have for any server small or large! Looking forward to the continued development of this plugin :)

    Without a doubt the BEST Arena plugin out there. Sadly incompatible with the latest minecraft server but that might chance soon.

      You're in luck! We have updated the plugin and things are working good as new again :)

    God idea of plugin and well executed. Every config edit makes the plugin unrecognized by the server therefore I can never edit the config files
