PvPManager is an all in one PvP plugin. Meaning that instead of using multiple plugins that customize the PvP experience in your server you would just use one.

One of its main features is to stop combat log and it was designed to be as efficient as possible which is great for large servers. All the features can be enabled/disabled according to your liking and the entire plugin can be disabled in specific worlds.

It's not bloated, no need for a ton of addons/expansions each with their own config or overcomplicated menus.
Everything is ready out of the box in a single jar, can be customized in one config with very detailed descriptions and fully supports being reloaded.

Supports Spigot / Paper(and forks) / Folia(experimental)

By default, players won't have access to any command like /pvp, so there is no need to setup permissions unless you want to allow them to use commands or exempt them from certain features.

There are some special permissions like being immune from getting tagged and not getting your fly, gamemode, etc disabled.
You can see all the permissions here: Permissions

Nametag limitations
Some plugins such as NametagEdit or other plugins that use packets to change nametags might interfere with PvPManager. At worst, this would just stop the player nametag prefix and glow color to display while in combat, every other feature like tagging still works correctly.
Excluding those above, PvPManager is 100% compatible with any plugin that uses the proper API methods to change nametag prefixes and colors.

  • What are the differences between this and the free version?
    • There are several differences including internal ones, i would say the most important are spawning NPCs, automatic respawn, better PvP protections and better plugin compatibility, which as usual can be toggled.
    • There are also new commands, config options, more plugin hooks and general tweaks.
    • Additionally, despite having more features there is a bigger effort in getting better performance which is also enhanced by the code obfuscation/optimization.
  • When players have PvP disabled they can still get attacked by XXX enchant from YYY plugin
    • The odds are this is an issue with the enchant plugin, PvPManager cancels the entity damage event, enchant plugins should call a damage event and check for that before applying their damages.
  • I want to hook into PvPManager, do you have an API?
    • Yes, if you are an external developer you can grab the latest jar from here and use it as an API, make sure to only use the classes PvPManager and PvPlayer as they are the only ones deobfuscated in the premium jar. Otherwise if you purchased the plugin just use the premium jar as you would with any plugin.
    • For more details check the Wiki for developers
  • Does PvPManager support PlaceholderAPI?
    • Yes, it does! You can find all the placeholders here
  • Where do I report bugs/suggest new features?
    • Create a new issue here: Issues
    • Join the discord and create a ticket: Discord
    • Please don't use reviews to report bugs, first try reporting the issue and allow me time to see it.
    • When getting support please use the account that purchased the plugin or indicate the nickname of the buyer
    • Also, keep in mind the plugin automatically reports any errors so they can be quickly solved. This only occurs when they are specifically PvPManager errors and it might not catch all, so any bug report is still appreciated.


If you want a free alternative and/or don't make a profit of your server, there is also PvPManager Lite which has less features but is the base of this version:
- PvPManager Lite
Other free plugins:
- AncientGates Regular and bungee portals
- PlayerWeight Player slows down according to their inventory fullness (Very outdated)
