    Latest release is fully compatible with Minecraft 1.15 !
    Dev builds are available on Jenkins

    Enhance your server by adding a new dimension of PVP battles! Create fully customisable, moddable, flexible arenas, develop your own arena goal or mod that totally changes the game as you wish. This flexibility is achieved on the one hand by a module loader created by NodinChan which loads arena goals (/pvparena/goals) and arena mods (/pvparena/mods) which enhance the gameplay just limited by your imagination, on the other hand it features an API, which still is a WIP due to lack of requests. I will enhance it as feature/hook requests arise.

    Full documentation, including all mods and goals on github!


    Generally speaking, most goals are part of the base plugin and you should be able to get the hang of it soon, by the help of the youtube tutorials, showing first hand how to set up an arena.

    Game Modes include but are not limited to:

    • win by destroying a block
    • win by domination a position long enough
    • win by capturing flags and bringing them home (CTF)
    • win by burning food and bringing it home
    • win by infecting other players or kill the infected
    • win by killing everyone, eventually liberate fallen comrads
    • win by killing an amount of people
    • win by igniting a bomb in the enemy base
    • win by killing everyone as tank or by killing the tank
    • win by aquiring enough of the above in a set amount of time

    PVP Arena on its own has a quite large range of settings, I suggest you check out the default configuration that is created (and linked on github) so you get a feeling for how much you can actually do.

    Enhancement Modules include but are not limited to:

    • add configurable announcements on various events
    • add arena boards (signs) to monitor arenas
    • give players battlefield maps with markers of enemies / goals (flags etc)
    • prevent people from entering and exiting the arena regions
    • detailed settings about classes (potion effects, restrictions)
    • kill streaks and corresponding rewards / potion effects
    • restore the battlefield after everyone went crazy
    • fill certain chests with predefined contents
    • add various commands and triggers to commit on various events
    • put people into a small place where they wait before respawning to the battlefield
    • special skins per team
    • allow joining via pressure plates, buttons, signs, ...
    • display relevant information on configurable MC scoreboards
    • add monetary rewards
    If you still have questions, feel free to reply in the "discussion" tab or open an issue on github.

    Donations are greatly appreciated <3

    Version: 1.14.0
    An average plugin for very simple PVP arenas, but it's a pain to work with for larger projects. It has a lot of smaller problems. to name a few:

    - Some commands don't give errors when an error occurs.
    - Sometimes have to reload after setting commands to work.
    - Some modules are out of date and work only after restarting.
    - The documentation is bad and outdated, very few explanations.
    - Some modules/ actions just outright crash the server.
    - Choosing classes is requires, even if turned off.
    - The video tutorials are old and pretty bad.
    - If the wrong command (order, letter) is used it starts the arena instead of giving an error. Very annoying.
    - The order of actions of some modules are bad. Example: using WorldEdit it restores the battlefield including entities and after that it clears the field of entities. Useless.

    It's a nice plugin if you want a few simple arena's with basic battles, but for game modes like The Walls, Hunger Games and Infection it's just so much better to use a dedicated plugin. Outside from the larger problems it's full of little annoyances and the documentation that looks big, but really isn't, doesn't help at all. There is no Discord Server either, you can only open issues on Github. After tinkering with multiple gamemodes and arenas for a week I wasn't very happy. Then, after I installed a simple module ,The server crashed and I couldn't move ingame after restarting. I had to delete player data and I decided to uninstall it and get some dedicated plugins instead.

    I do not recommend this plugin for 1.15.2

    Excellent plugin. Functional, well-documented, with an active developer. Can be used for a surprisingly broad variety of minigames.

    Does what it needs to but doesn't in FFA mode, every time we join we all become winners saying we left the battlefield.

      Hi, thanks for your review. I think your FFA arena region is not correctly set and when players are teleported to the game spawns, these ones are outside the region and players are kicked. I suggest you to check "creation" and "regions" topics from the docs (https://github.com/Eredrim/pvparena) and ask for help directly from the "discussion" tab if you keep getting stuck.

    How I do when someone dies is launching to a certain place. And each team will have a different point to end
    For example, when a member of the Red Team dies, he launches into the Red Team's room and waits for the end of the game. And the same in the blue group

    Great plugin, I use it for my server. I have one question though, how do you set up protections etc? Because when I do /pa protection (name of region) (name of flag) true and then I try with false, it doesn't make any change and I just can't do the action in the region. I don't know how to allow or disallow certain actions.
