    Take back what I last said: this plugin is completely unusable:

    1. Sometimes to just doesn't TP people back and leaves them in the arena. As if they have completed an arena, but are unable to enter a new arena becuase it says they are in the old one. 2. Sometimes i just doesn't pay players when completing a run 3. if a player logs out after situation 1 occurs, it will pay them double, or nothing. 4. Payment it sometimes just completely wrong. Players have been payed anywhere from 200-500 with a set 500 pay out.

    Anyone reading this - wouldn't advise using this (This was on spigot 1.8.8)

    Really nice plugin!

    The only request I would ask is an option to allow people to race each other:

    For example, the arena will only start if X amount if players join or after say 1 minute of the first person clicking it (with at least 2 people needed to start). Once a player gets to the redstone that game is over and that single person won - all players are TP'ed back

    This would make it into a real stand alone minigame.

    EDIT: Also, you collect coins, yet coins dont save/dont add towards people money to do other arenas - what are the point in coins?

    EDIT2: Not all maps TP users back for some reason. I have 10 irun arenas, 2 of them are not TPing players back.

    Is there any way to give players permissions to join specific arenas? If there is not, this could be a future request. for example insanityrun.join.<name of the arena>

    Hello, this seems like an awesome plugin but doesn't seem to kick my players for teleporting out of the arena which is a somewhat big issue.

    It seems to block things like /tp and /tpa, but not teleportations to a world. Can you please fix this? *_*
