hmm, but then if we have battle like sunday 19:00 then the next week we can't have it at sunday 19:00 again we'd have to wait will sunday 19:30.
so can we have it like 1 week - 1 hour?
I would say no, that makes the rule unnecessarily complex when you already have to agree on a time. Your motivation to start the battle a bit earlier could be so you'll have one week from that point where you don't have to battle that enemy, I forgot about that, so putting battles exactly one week apart could still happen if people actually wanted to.

There currently are no weapon ristrictions, but you shouldn't spawn a wither, because you can't control what it damages and you may end up damaging other zones.

What do people think about DeathChest? Should we allow it in the battles? Otherwise, the battle may pretty much be determined by who dies first, because if you lose all your good gear the game is pretty much over. If lava is involved losing good gear may not be very fun either.
We could also set ristrictions on the weapons/armor allowed, such as only unenchanted iron armor and unenchanted bows, arrows, iron swords, TNT, lava buckets, fire charges... Possibly other items.

Ender eyes should probably be banned, because they'd make teleporting to the flag or getting into the base too easy.

I think actually setting these ristrictions and allowing DeathChests could make the battles much more fun. If people are less afraid of dying, they are more likely to engage each other and fight instead of trying to take complex routes to avoid each other and such. I might implement ristrictions tomorrow unless people complain or something.
