ArenaCTF png


A Capture the Flag plugin where you pick up the wool color representing the other team, shown by visual around the wool. Once you pick it up teams are alerted and you need to bring the flag back to your base while your flag is still there. You can make more than one ctf arena and players will cycle through the different maps.


  1. Put the ArenaCTF.jar in your plugins folder, along with BattleArena.jar

Making a ctf arena

  1. /ctf create <ctf arena name>
  2. /ctf addFlag <ctf arena name> 1 <- add the flag for team 1
  3. /ctf alter <ctf arena name> 2 <- setup a second spawn
  4. /ctf addFlag <ctf arena name> 2 <- add the flag for team 2
  5. /ctf alter <ctf arena name> waitroom 1 <- add a waitroom (you can take a waitroom out by changing the config)


  • /ctf join

Permission Node

  1. Players will need the permission node arena.join.capturetheflag
  2. arena.leave , so they can type /ctf leave

How do I win ?

To capture the flag you need to bring the enemy flag back to your flag at it's home. If your flag is being held by the enemy you will need to kill them and return it back ( just walk over it ).

This plugin is made to hook into BattleArena, so you also need to download it as well.

    @Zach443: Go

    hi, i wonder if my problems are coming from the "left behind" or any of my other plugins biting with arenactf... running bukkit 1.7.9-r3

    i setup a ctf arena, we can join over the signs, all fine, but we cant capture the flag. to be more precise: the flag-stand spawns wool and has the aura, but you can pickup tons of that wool without getting the aura yourself, plus you cant score with the wool.

    hope for a quick help to this, as i would like to have a ctf open on my server :)

    greetings and thanks for all the work :)

    Sorry guys, this plugin will get updated soon. We have a lot going on, and this plugin sort of got left behind. It will be picked up in the coming weeks and updated to 1.8, but right now we have a ton of work to do with BattleArena, BattleTracker, and ArenaSpleef. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    This needs to be a stand alone if it gets updated. No dependencies maybe vault for economy and command rewards from console.
    Reason for command rewards is you can make it reward from any other plugin on the server by simply using console commands.
    Its crazy how many developers don't use this method!

    Are you still working on this? 1.7.10 seems to throw errors.

    @LegendaryAdmin: Go

    Im running it on spigot 1.7.10 (the 1.8 compatible version) ;)

    It is just incompatible with "CombatTag", everything else is fine.

    EDIT: Can you "update your import path."? That's what the CombatTag dev suggested, to solve the problem that you can't join an ctf arena. Here is what the console says: I hope you can have a look :)

    Can anyone tell me if this is working for 1.7.9? And since there is a scoreboard issue with spigot and the arena plugins, is the scoreboard needed to play the game?
