    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
    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.

      Hi, thanks for your rating. About your first question, it's unfortunately impossible to fix the amount of players of each team. However, you can set min and max players in each team in the config (within the "ready" block).
      For your second request, just use both the goals teamdm and playerlives. In playerlives config, set 1 life per player and in teamdm config, set the number of lives as the max number of players per team.

      If you need more help or if the just want to talk about the plugin, please use the "discussion" tab of this page.

    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... ;)
