    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 here, over on dev.bukkit.org or on github in an issue.

    Donations are greatly appreciated <3

    The Best (and also Free) Multi-type Player Arena Plugin...
    The only disappoint is... that it gives some errors on latest 1.13+, otherwise is the PERFECT MultiArena Plugin... Easy but Powerful plug!

    I hope you'll try to update to latest version of MC... ;)

    Hey thanks for the good work man. This is a great starting plugin for new servers and has really helped mine out a lot. Its sad to know that the creator to this is leaving and will no longer supply updates, but for the mean time this is a great plugin and I intend to use it until it completely is no longer functional. Thanks a lot!

    Bug Armor, player no wear armor but have bug 5, 7.5, full armor after Leave out the Game.... please fix this :'((((

    I absolutely love this plugin, and have been using it for atlleast 1 year now, but I still have 1 question that I have not yet found an answer to. Everytime I make a kit I'll put the armor in my hotbar, but then I select a kit ingame and it automatically puts it on. I would like to change this as I am working with custom enchants and evertime the gear is put on automatically the custom enchants do not work. Thanks for making a great plugin anyways!

    On start, it stays at the pvp lobby instead of going to the arena

    Very cool plugin. Lot of custom things and actif developer ! It have 20 goals and you can combine them to create unique games. Thank Slipcor for your work.

    Everything Seems to be working at first glance, but whenever i try to restart my server, the plugin is disabled and i have to reset the jar file, in my FTP it says that the jar file is corrupted. This happens every time. I am trying to set up a Dominations Arena and its proving to be much more difficult than i expected. Please help!

      I have never heard of this, please double check that your upload worked properly - and maybe disable the automated update by setting mode: off in the main config --- or if you want updates, try fixing permissions maybe?
    pretty nice plugin the only thing I need help with is a winners lobby
    If you could help that would be great also keep up the great work!
