This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

ABANDONED! Hello! This Avalanche plugin was made when I sucked at coding Java. This is why there are many errors and such. I have abandoned this project due to me working on other programs or plugins, because I would have to redo this entire plugin, because I can't even understand my own code that well in this plugin (I made this when I was horrible at coding plugins, and it isn't using the formats that I use now). However, if many people want this plugin back, I would be glad to recreate this plugin! Just fill out the poll on the side!

Can anyone make a better Avalanche logo than what is above? If so, PM me ;)

Anyone have a YouTube channel? If you make a video on this plugin, it will be on here!

How do you like the plugin??

Should I have this on my custom minigame / OP faction server, or do you want it only on your server, so people join yours? If the second one, tell us your IP, and we will post it here!

What is Avalanche

Avalanche is the first Minecraft minigame I have ever coded, suggested by Drqgon.

Avalanche is a multi-arena game where snowballs fall from the sky and you have to try to dodge them. If you get hit, you are out, and sent to the spectator area. Also, random blocks spawn in the specified section which you can use to protect yourself from falling snowballs, or they could get in your way! However, you probably will not be able to stand under a block for the entire round, as PvP is enabled (no damage though)! There are 7 rounds in the game, each 45 seconds long. In each round, snowball spawning speeds up, and block spawning (for protection) slows down! On round 7, block spawning disables, and snowballs come speeding down. If you survive all 7 rounds, there is a death match at the end with Avalanche themed armor (aqua leather chestplate, with white leather leggings and boots) along with a wooden sword and a bow. The winner is the last one standing. If all players are eliminated before round 7, the last player standing wins.

Video Tutorials

Thanks NumeroUno for making a tutorial on my plugin! - English


  • Multi-Arena - Have more than 1 arena running at the same time!
  • Easy setup - Start off with using "/avalanche create <arena>", then the chat guides you through setting up the rest!
  • Help menu - When you do "/avalanche", it shows you all the commands that YOU have access to!
  • Create join and leave signs!

Customizable Features

  • Change the area where the snowballs spawn (with WorldEdit selection)
  • Change the area where the blocks spawn (with WorldEdit selection)
  • Set the spectate area per arena
  • Set the lobby area per arena
  • Set the borders of the arena (per arena with WorldEdit selection)
  • Set the main lobby (where all the join signs are)
  • Add spawns per arena (players will randomly spawn at one of the spawns in the arena)
  • Change the block for the random block spawn (per arena)
  • Change the minimum and maximum players per arena

Admin Command Features

  • Force start an arena (shortens the arena time to 5 seconds instead of the usual 30 second countdown) - This only works if the arena has atleast 2 players (bypassing the minimum player setting)
  • Force stop an arena (kicks all players, sending them to the Avalanche main lobby)

Cool Features

  • After every round and game, all blocks are cleared!
  • If all players leave except 1, that last player is kicked as well!
  • The game saves your inventory and armor before the game (as it clears your inventory/armor when the game starts), and returns it to you after the game.
  • You CANNOT break blocks while in-game!
  • You can PvP at certain times while in-game!
  • At the end, there is a firework (star shaped, power 1, color green, fade yellow, flicker on) that is launched from the winners location!
  • If a player disconnects from the game, they are removed!
  • To list all arenas created, just do "/avalanche join" without an arena name at the end!
  • There is a death match for all of those who survive to the end of the game!
  • Each round, snowballs start spawning faster, and protection blocks start spawning slower!


  • There is no check to make sure you have everything set! So make sure you follow the "Next Step" chat messages in-game!
  • PvP in the game is automatically disabled in the arena lobby and spectate area (and right before the game starts). But when the game is running, make sure you do not have a WorldGuard (or something like that) region blocking PvP in the arena, unless you do not want players to fight in the arena.
  • Do not changing the min-player/max-player amount while the game is running/in lobby may cause errors. If you need to change it, make sure it isn't running by force stopping it
  • Inventory/Armor saving glitches - Don't worry! No personal (Minecraft) items are lost in this game (I think). When you join, it saves your inventory and armor, then clears it. However, there is a glitch where the inventory actually clears, but there are still images of the item in your hotbar (but when you right click on the item, it disappears). So I recommend not having anything in your inventory in the same server/world with this minigame. However, I think it is fine to have compasses (for teleportation), player hider items, etc.


  1. Make sure you have WorldEdit installed. If you do not, it will say so in the console and the plugin will shut down.

  3. Drag into server's plugins folder
  4. Start up your server
  5. Stop your server (optional)
