PvP timer plugin

    Hello everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this.


    I've been hosting a public server for a few years, which has multiple safe zones to prevent pvp, but something that has constantly been a feature we wished we had was a pvp enabling/counter-attack plugin for people in safezones.

    We use worldguard on our server and generate multiple areas that are supposed to be safe for players, however, it just so happens that these spots attract player killers that roam the edges waiting for people to leave, and when they find themselves unable to finish the job, they run back into the safezone, pretty much inversing the role of protection for players we intended these for, and ending up protecting the player killers. This ends up creating mobs of people just waiting on others to just get out of the safezone so they can kill them, or get their items back.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The plugin I'd like to request would be able to detect a player initiating an attack on someone, and enabling pvp for the attacker globally on worldguard (or maybe more specifically by region), then a timer would activate for a custom amount of time that would first of all prevent all other players' worldguard protection to be turned off toward this attacking player, and then countdown for that attacking player his time remaining before his default region protection is turned back on.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    That's pretty much the gist of it, I might not have thought of every detail or possibility but if this is something that interests you, I'd be happy to answer any questions regarding it.


    Thank you for your time! It's extremely appreciated,

    That looks like a great plugin, but as I thought, I hadn't taken everything into account right away, we also use precious stones plots alot, so a manually created lines won't really work since we don't know where people will lay their precious stone plots down, not to mention it would take a ton of work to manually go modify them all.

    Perhaps something more along the lines of

    -detect attacking player
    -add global pvp perm for attacking player
    -begin timer countdown
    -custom amount of time
    -end timer countdown

    Apologies for not making it more clear the first time around

    If I may, why not just use a duels plugin where players can request to duel someone anyone in the world?

    Mainly because I want there to still be free-pvp in the world, but I don't want the protected regions to be used as strategic pvp points to save the skin of pkers.
