Update warning for v2.*

SkyWars v2.* adds UUID support.

SkyWars v2.* builds require Minecraft version of 1.7.8 or higher.
If you need to use an earlier version of Minecraft, please download SkyWars v1.4.4 instead.

After updating to v2.*, SkyWars will migrate its storage from names to UUIDs as users log into your server.
This way there is no long transfer period, and it supports all properly configured proxies (bungeecord, lilypad, etc.).


  • Automatically create new arenas every time enough people join the queue.
  • Have as many arenas going at the same time as you want!
    Whenever the configured amount of people in the queue (default to 4), a new arena is created automatically!
    There is no limit besides your server's capacity to how many arenas SkyWars can create.
  • Teleports people to lobby location when they leave or die.
  • When players walk near a set portal, they will be automatically added to the queue.
  • Clears player inventories when the join a game and when the leave.
