A Spleef plugin where players can queue and will join a free Spleef arena. You can make more than one Spleef arena and players will cycle through them. If all arenas are in use, the players are kept in the queue and will join when one opens up.

You can modify all aspects of the spleef by editing the SpleefConfig.yml. Including what items they get for the spleef, whether they get prizes, etc.


  • Regen layers at specified intervals
  • Multiple layers can be created for any arena
  • Multiple arenas can be used at one time
  • Small team matches or server wide spleef events


  1. Put the ArenaSpleef.jar in your plugins folder, along with BattleArena.jar, WorldEdit.jar, and WorldGuard.jar

Making a Spleef arena

You will have to create an area for the spleef. Make one or more layers you want the players to fight on. Make sure that below the last layer that the players either land in water or lava/some other deadly trap.

  1. /spleef create <Spleef arena name> : Example /spleef create myFirstArena
  2. /spleef alter <Spleef arena name> 2 <- setup a second spawn, you can keep adding them if you want more than 2, like /spleef alter <Spleef arena name> 3. Example : /spleef alter myFirstArena 2
  3. Now select the layer you want the players to fight on with the WorldGuard edit tool (usually a wood_axe)
  4. /spleef setLayer <spleef arena name> . Example /spleef setLayer myArena
  5. you should probably protect the entire area with worldguard so they can't break out of the spleef arena.

Adding Multiple Layers

  • /spleef setLayer <spleef arena name> <layer num> .
    • Example /spleef setLayer myArena 2

Adding Regeneration to Layers

  • /spleef setRegen <spleef arena name> <regen time>.
  • /spleef setRegen <spleef arena name> <layer num> <regen time> .
    • Example /spleef setRegen myArena 45 <- regen layer 1 every 45 seconds


  1. players will need the permission node arena.join.spleef
  2. /spleef join
  3. Permissions to leave arena.leave

    That is because you can set more than 1 layer. I don't think the first layer requires a number, but any layer beyond that requires a layer number.

    Hi Do you need anything from us for that issue about the layers disappearing if it is happening to us? or... you prefer us not posting that we have the issue since it is being investigated?

    Thanks for the heads up, this wasn't happening when Euro and I were testing the plugin out, but I will try again and ask him about it. Stay tuned for more info.

    Experiencing the same here.

    I created the arena (which is a circle, so had to dig in a bit to set the cuboid for the snow layer). Did everything as instructed, even got confirmation messages that the first layer was created. Joined a queue with a friend, and when the message comes up saying there is 10 seconds until the match, I saw it set the layer region to AIR. The place where I'm assuming snow should spawn was set to air instead, we spawned in and fell straight into the water.

    Any insight on this?

    Yep, my layers disappear just as the match begins and never respawn. ArenaSpleef 1.5.1 BattleArena WG 6.0.0-beta-05.1569 WE 6.0:3342-78f975b9

    Hmm, I set my first and only layer, and everything seemed fine. Then I started a match with a friend and immediately as soon as the match started the whole arena layer disappeared and we dropped to the bottom and the match was declared a draw. Not sure what I did wrong? Also after the match, my layer did not reappear. There is now just an empty spot where the layer I selected was...
