PvPManager will start downloading in 5 seconds...


Using multiple plugins to handle PvP? Don't want to use yet another plugin just for that one feature? Or even simply looking for an updated Combat Log plugin with great performance?

PvPManager is an all in one PvP combat plugin. Meaning that it combines most plugins that control the PvP experience in your server to just one.
There are certainly some features that are better covered by a dedicated separate plugin. Still, PvPManager will try to cover most of those even if in a more superficial way, while always maintaining good performance in mind.
More suggestions are always welcome, although new features are usually added to the premium version first.
All the features can be enabled/disabled according to your liking and have no performance impact when disabled.

Supports servers running Spigot / Paper / Folia

Supports PlaceholderAPI - List of placeholders or /papi info pvpmanager

PvPManager Premium

If you have been using PvPManager for a long time you probably know how much it changed since earlier versions, it was the first plugin i ever released on bukkit, many years ago.
I really appreciate it if you have been using my plugin over the years, even if there were times where I was less active. If you wish to support my work, there is a premium version of PvPManager. Think of it as a fork of this version but with improved performance and some extra features and improvements.
If you don't make a profit from your server, the free version is not abandoned and will keep receiving updates but don't hesitate to throw me a nice review, it means a lot more than you think!
Note: You might need to register on Spigot to see the premium resource!


Since 02/10/2019 (Started tracking on v3.5)

Please create a ticket if you find any bug or have a suggestion. Thank you.
