    I have done a metric ton of changes to this plugin to make it much better. Tons of bug fixes and customizations :)
    I would love to take over dev of this plugin :)

    Anyone want to work with me in designing the update for the 1.9 so uuids are properly handled and stored.

    I am thinking of a simple uuid handling class so little code would be need changing in the plugin's structure.

    Hello, I am having an issue.

    When ever I play it is only one arena every single time. There is 4 schematics and all 4 are noted down in the config. But it only plays one map.

    Herro :3
