1v1 and team deathmatch event

Supported Games

Duelist is a highly customizable complex dueling system with betting, queuing, a ranked ladder, rematches, it's own UI and an arena wall generator all made user-friendly to players and server owners.

  • Avoid Creating Automatic Spawn Points In Water (default: true) -- if enabled the spawn points will not be created when the depth of water prevents players from attacking
  • Create Least Amount Of Walls (default: false) -- by default walls are evened off at the highest point of the arena. This option, if enabled, will only create the minimum required number of external walls
  • Create New Zone Every X Duels [0 = disabled] (default: 10) -- the number of duels required to automatically remove a zone and relocate it elsewhere randomly on the map. This keeps zones fresh and provides the most challenging terrain for players.

  • Players Visible To Admins (default: true) -- allows admins to see invisible players in matches. Useful when disabled if admins like to play matches without seeing everyone.
  • Use Arena Wall Generation (default: true) -- automates the process of creating walls around a zone. This should not be disabled unless you protect your zone using other means.
  • Use Wooden Walls (default: false) -- by default all external walls are stone. This allows them to be wooden instead. The protection is the same.
  • Zone Radius (Min: 50, Max: 300) (default: 50.0) -- the radius for every zone created automatically or manually. This number should not be increased without gradually testing it. Setting this number too high will break the plugin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Steps to creating a quick bind for the Duelist GUI:

  1. Press F1, go to Console
  2. bind u dui
  3. Press U to toggle the Duelist GUI

How Team Deathmatch works:

  • Players are not invisible in Team Deathmatch.
  • Friendly Fire can be set on or off in the config.
  • Once all players of the enemy team have been killed the match will end. This is not score based yet.
  • First a match must be created. To do this use '/tdm playername' to challenge a player
  • Once a player has used '/tdm accept' to accept your challenge the match will be opened for private invitation and codes will be sent to the host of each team
  • Private invitation requires players joining to either 1) be a friend of a host, or 2) provide a code to join a team. The plugin uses its own code to decide if a player is a friend or not. See 'How betting protection works'.
  • To join private matches players must use '/tdm any' to join any team which is hosted by a friend, or '/tdm code' where code is the 5 digit code specific to your team
  • Toggle your match for public invitation by using /tdm public. If a match is public any player may use '/tdm any' to join it.
  • You may use '/tdm cancel' to cancel your match so long as it hasn't started
  • You may use '/tdm leave' to leave a match that you have joined
  • To set a specific size for your match use '/tdm size 3' where 3 will make it a 3v3 so long as the match hasn't started
  • TDM takes precedence over 1v1 duels and will lock a zone from use while a match is in progress. This also means that a TDM cannot start until a zone is free of all duelists. (This can be altered under Advanced Options in the config and by using custom spawn points. 'Create New Zone Every X Duels' must be set to 0 (zero) if using advanced options.)
  • Use /tdm for more information.

How zone creation works:

  • Duelist will scan the map for a suitable area which must meet these requirements: be away from all player structures and deployables, not be covered by more than 25% water, and not be on extremely steep hills.
  • When this is completed the plugin will then create it's own spawn points within the dueling zone.
  • Afterwards, an admin may type '/duel on' to enable dueling. Typing '/duel off' will disable duels and remove all duelers from the dueling zone.
  • A new zone is automatically created after every 10 duels to keep the terrain fresh for players so they never tire of the same dueling location. This will stall until all current duels finish. This provides the most challenging locations for players to fight in.

How protection works:

  • Players cannot do damage to structures, deployables or other players other than to the player(s) in their match.
  • Players cannot loot any containers, or drop any items other than throwing weapons. This is useful for server owners who want the zone in a custom defined location (use '/duel custom' to spawn the zone at the location you are looking at)
  • Players cannot build inside of the dueling zone unless configured.
  • The dueling zone is surrounded by arena walls evened off at the top
  • Animals that attack players inside of the dueling zone will either be put to sleep, flee, or be killed depending on your config setting.
  • All duelers have invisibility to everyone except the person they are dueling until their duel is finished. This means zones can be shared by multiple players except if in use by a TDM match.
  • Players have 10 minutes to finish their match before they are executed by the server.
  • If for any reason the dueler dies then the opposing dueler will win the duel.
  • Duelers are immune to cold and drowning in the dueling zone

How arena wall generation works:

  • Must be enabled to prevent players from leaving dueling zones. Optional if you use other means.
  • Generates automatically when a dueling zone is created.
  • Arena walls will automatically be removed from zones which are deleted as a result of lowering 'Max Zones' in the config
  • Walls conform to the highest and lowest points of terrain
  • Will only be created if no arena walls around the dueling zone exist
  • Walls are removed when the dueling zone is removed
  • Walls are not removed when the plugin is unloaded. You must manually delete the zone to have the walls removed
  • Walls level off at the top at the same height above the highest point of terrain. This amount can be adjusted in the config under 'Extra High External Wall Stacks'
  • Walls are immune to all damage including decay
  • If walls are not at the desired height then increase the Extra High External Wall Stacks amount
  • Use '/duel remove_all_walls' to remove all high external stone walls on the server which have an owner ID greater than 0 but are not owned by any player.

How spawn points work:

  • A random spawn point is assigned to the first dueler, and the second dueler will be spawned away from this player at a safe distance.
  • Players are given temporary immunity to damage (10 seconds) to get themselves situated in their match. This time starts once they begin teleporting.
  • Spawn points are generated each time the plugin is loaded, and when a dueling zone is created/initialized.
  • Spawn points are located around the circumference of each zone, viewable by using '/duel spawns'

How betting works:

  • Once enabled players may make bets towards their next duel under the condition that the player they duel has the same bet.
  • You are not allowed to request duels while having an active bet if the player you are requesting does not have the same bet.
  • If joining the queue with a bet then you will only win the bet if the player you defeat has the same bet as you and is not associated as a friend.
  • Bets must be multiples of 500 if above 500 in the total amount bet. This reduces operator error between two players placing bets.
  • Protection is in place to prevent friends from betting other friends. This prevents abuse of the betting system.
  • You can add or edit the available bets by viewing Settings -> Bets in the configuration file.
  • Use '/duel bet' in game.

How betting protection works:

  • 5 unique methods are used to check if 2 players are friends.
  • Are they in the same clan?
  • Are they authorized on any cupboard together?
  • Are any of their sleeping bags within proximity of each other?
  • Are they sharing any codelocks together?
  • Have they built anything together in the same location?
  • If any of these are true then they're friends and the bet cannot be won.

How queuing works:

  • Simply type /queue and wait for another player to join the queue. Once two players are queued they will instantly teleport to a dueling zone to begin their match. The queuing system is first come first serve. This removes the need to directly request a duel with another player.
  • Players are instantly teleported back to the position from which they joined when their match is over or they have been defeated. If a bet was won then an announcement will be made to the winner.

How the ranked ladder works:

  • Type '/duel ladder' to view it. Shows wins, losses and win/loss ratios.
  • Resets each wipe except the lifetime ladder.
  • Permissions and groups are assigned to the top 3 players for use with plugins that give titles based on permissions or groups after each map wipe.
  • Permission Name: duelist.dd
  • Group Name: duelist

How creating custom spawn points work:

  • This feature is completely optional. Spawn points will be automatically generated if none exist.
  • Can be added anywhere on the map as they will only be used if found inside of a dueling zone.
  • Are not removed when a dueling zone is removed unless configured to do so.
  • Are automatically wiped when a server wipe is detected.
  • Added spawn points will be indicated by a green S marker for 30 seconds.
  • Removed spawn points will be indicated by a red -S marker for 30 seconds.
  • Spawn points can be added, removed or wiped at any time.
  • Minimum of two (2) spawn points are required if using custom spawn points.
  • Will be automatically used without any special requirements. Add, remove or wipe at any time.


  • Two types of Kits are available. Custom Kits and kits created with the Kits plugin.
  • Users may opt to use their own kits created with the Kits plugin by including their names into the Kits and Kits Least Used fields in the configuration file.
  • Custom Kits will be used if no kit names are configured.
  • To add another Custom Kit simply copy and paste from an existing one and modify it to your needs. Once you're finished use a JSON Validator to ensure there are no formatting errors.
  • The plugin does output to the server console if a Custom Kit was not added properly.
  • Kits are randomly chosen. Kits have priority over Kits Least Used based on the Kits Least Used Chance.
  • You may put Custom Kit names into the Kits and Kits Least Used sections to take advantage of the Kits Least Used Chance setting.

/duel remove_all_walls:

  • You may use this command, and reload the plugin to apply configuration changes.
  • Walls will automatically be created for each zone if NO walls are found when the plugin is reloaded.
  • This does not remove walls which are pasted in using CopyPaste.
  • This does not remove walls which belong to players.
  • The OwnerID of a wall must be greater than 0 (zero) and not belong to a player to be destroyed using this command.
  • This is intended to remove walls which were created by Duelist.
