    Just wanted to say that I've used this plugin for years and it's been a great one :)

    I'm a little sad to see it become less and less updated, and as Zach said it has been a good run. Nonetheless, it was a great plugin and I'm sure it'll keep being used for a while, thankfully new versions of Spigot, Bukkit, etc, they don't break the older plugins entirely or at all most of the time.

    It truly was the greatest plugin I've ever used :)

    @cicatrice74: Go

    So for the foreseeable future BattleArena is not receiving updates or any form of maintenance. All good things must come to an end, and at this point I feel like BattleArena has run it's course. I know there are still many of you out there that love and use this plugin, but it is honestly a real time eater to maintain and debug, which I no longer (and to be honest haven't for a very long time) have the time/energy needed to keep this going. If Euro wishes to continue then I guess that's fine, but I haven't been able to talk to him in quite a while. Maybe a rewrite will come in the future, I don't know. But as of right now, this journey is over.

    No errors so far with BA2, but Is the ArenaFutbol still active? The slime ball doesn't work and I'm afraid of bugs so I'll wait when it will be 1.9-1.10 supported.

    Hi, I've been getting errors with BatteArena recently. Also, ArenaSpleef crashes the server after the game ends.

    Could someone help me please?

    Thanks, Coco

    As far as I know, the plugin is working fine with 1.10, carry on as always and report bugs on IRC and GitHub if you see any.
