    So in my CTF arena i have added /ctf alter <arenaname> addregion, to my arena. i have also added /ctf alter <arenaname> onfinish wgResetRegion and /ctf alter <arenaname> onfinish wgClearRegion.

    Now in the configs i had to add a "onFinish:" in there and added wgResetRegion to both onFinish and onOpen.

    My Ctf arena is not resetting back to the state it started in, am i doing something wrong?

    Please Help

    @Si7VdeR: Go

    The plugin works totally fine on 1.8, as long as you are using WorldGuard v5.x . WorldGuard 6.0 and higher will cause all things that have to do with arena regeneration to not work. For updated versions please use the BattleArena2 page. We still have this one running for legacy purposes.

    Don't see any information about 1.8. Is this compatible with 1.8 ?

    Hello, author of BattleArena.
    I am using Battlearena on 1.7.10 MCPC+ server.
    When I place signs that say
    Nothing happens.
    I've already created my arena "main".

    Never mind, I seemed to find the problem.

    Hi, I have a problem with Battlearena. When I install Battlearena And Worldguard, Battle arena Crash and say : Problem loading plugin, please sens errors on startup to alkarin_v.

    If I install Battlearena without Worldguard, the plugin working properly.

    Error in Console : [Server] ERROR Error occurred while enabling BattleArena v3.9.7.9 (Is it up to date?)

    Ps: I'm french ;)
