Hello dear tributes,

I am glad to announce that our FFA has been updated!
Less lag and a new map!

FFA Updates - 09/8/2019 (Info by @Hxzx)

Implemented FFA Maps

Cliff Chaos - Levah & Ondre


Explanation of Cliff Chaos
Cliff Chaos is a new FFA map based on the theme of a Jungle with steep terrain resulting in very intense PVP throughout the whole map. Within this map you'll notice we have a twist to make things a little more interesting, this includes Tier 1 & Tier 2 pressure pads.

Tier 1 Pads - These pads are the most common to find on Cliff Chaos, allowing the player to gain either ONE positive or negative effect.
Tier 2 Pads - There is only one tier 2 pad on Cliff Chaos and it's located beneath spawn. The difference is that this pad will give the player TWO positive effects.

Tier 1 Effects will last 10 seconds

Official New gamemodes!

Hello dear tributes.

Today we are happy to announce some new gamemodes! Some of them were requested by you, and others are brand new.
You will be able to play SoloSG, GodSG and UHCSG tomorrow!


This gamemode has been asked to be added a lot of times. We used to have it, but it didn't receive the amount of players we were expecting. Today, I am happy to say that it's back!
How it works:
  • No teams.
  • Everyone is automatically disguised.
  • Chat is disabled.
  • Real name is revealed when a tribute dies.
  • Separated stats.
  • Bounty is disabled.
  • Sponsor is disabled.

When Marvel's Avengers: Endgame was released, we did a special event. Those who played it asked to be added as a permanent gamemode, so here you go! However, please note that we have made some changes to it. As you will see, this is a difficult gamemode to play alone, and all the match has to play together if they want to win.
How it works...

Official BackPlay status update

Hello dear tributes!

It has been a long time since I last posted here, and I think it's time to explain some changes.

First of all, from now on, updates won't be super epic and big. Instead, I will be doing smaller updates that will make the deployment process faster and you will get new features and bug fixes faster.

Regarding maps, I am working with @Albert to bring new maps and making the process easier so maps can be added when accepted on forums. In addition we have heard your feedback and we are working to fix some lag problems in maps such as Zone 85 and Highway, tiering problems in Breeze Island and Solar Frost being unplayable.

We have also got feedback regarding hit register and knockback and we are working to improve and bring you the best experience possible.

It's also important to mention that we are working on a brand new anti cheat.

See you soon <3

Official NA release date

Official Welcome, OldTimes players!

Hi dear tributes!

I want to let you all know that OldTimes network is now part of the BackPlay network, and what implications does this have.

OldTimes is a UHC-based network, this means that BackPlay will start hosting UHCs in a week or two max.
Also, OldTimes is from NA, and yes, this means that the BackPlay NA proxy is going to release in less than a week, but as mentioned above, hosting UHCs might start a bit later.

We are so excited to bring you the UHC gamemode and the NA proxy that you asked for a long time!

I usually post news here:

If you join with the IP you will join BackPlay's EU proxy.

With love,

SGUHC mixes both SG and UHC.

Also, you will get 6 XP levels for each kill!

  • Arrows
  • Feather
  • Enchanting bottle
  • Anvil
  • Iron armor

Official How is SG ranking calculated?

  • 990
  • 1
Hello dear tributes!

This is a question that I have heard a lot of times, so I am here to explain how it works.

First of all, all wins, kills and deaths are taken in count to calculate the ranking.
This works as a points system, so more points mean better ranking.

The formula:
points = wins * 20 + kills * 3 - deaths * 2

Official The brand new FFA it's ready!

Hello dear tributes!

I am glad to announce that our brand new FFA it's ready to be played.
Adding this gamemode means that you will have to say goodbye to BattleGrounds.

Let me explain how FFA works:

You spawn in the floating platform and you are given the kit.
You can change the hotbar items order up in the spawn so it gets saved.
For each kill, you get a golden apple and full regen. Also, if you already used the Flint and Steel, you get a new one.

That's it. Quite simple, right?

FFA will be added tomorrow, December 29.

They are coming any time soon, I am testing and fixing the last bugs that were found during beta tests.

Official Clanwars and FFA are coming!

Hi dear tributes!

Today I have some great news for you all.

As you may probably know, I have been working on a Clanwars system so everything is automated and recently also started working on FFA which will replace BattleGrounds.

Well, both are finished and this weekend I will be hosting a beta test in order to fix all the posible bugs.

The beta test will have two phases:
  1. Private beta: Only for staff, donors and some whitelisted players (more about how to get whitelisted below).
  2. Open beta: Once the private beta is done, a public beta will be hosted so everyone can test our new gamemodes!
The public beta will be a bit later than the private one, so the bugs found on the private one can be fixed before opening the second beta.


Both beta tests will be streamed at my twitch channel so if you are not whitelisted or you...

Hi dear tributes!

As you may know BackPlay has been a target of a bunch of DDoS attacks for the last 3 days.
We have added new servers and more DDoS protection to guarantee a better uptime.

I apologize.

Hi tributes!

Recently one of our moderators banned a ton of players for "BLACKLIST". All the bans have been removed and you should be able to join!

We are sorry about what happened.

Official Suggestions for gamemodes

  • 714
  • 1
Hello dear tributes!

We have been online for a while, and some people suggested adding new gamemodes, while others suggested to just have SG.
I have made a poll where you can vote if you would like to see new gamemodes such as duels(arena pvp), SkyWars or UHC.
Please, note that the new gamemodes won't be instantly available, they are more looking to the future than to the present.

I will be pleased to hear your feedback about this! You can use our Discord server: or just use the Suggestions forum.

Please note that this doesn't mean that all the gamemodes listed in the poll will be added. They are just examples.

Have a nice day!
