I'm developing a Minecraft mini-game and I want to execute a command when a team reach 0 points.

I've created a dummy objective:

/scoreboard objective add health dummy Health

And 3 teams:

/scoreboard teams add A-team teama
/scoreboard teams add B-team teamb
/scoreboard teams add C-team teamc

All teams start with 1000 points and depending what they do their points will be decreased, I want to execute a command when one team reachs 0 points. I'm using this but it doesn't work:

/testfor @a[team=A-team, score_health_min=0]
  • I'm using Minecraft 1.9.1

Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad English.

    Teams themselves can't have points. Do you mean detecting when someone on that team reaches 0 points, when everyone on that team reaches 0 points, or do you have a fake player set up to represent the team?

  • No, teams haven't got any players, Mmm.. So should I add a fake player for each team to represent the team?

  • How are you currently adding/subtracting points? You'll need to add a fake player if you haven't already got something set up for that, yeah.

  • I use /scoreboard players remove A-team health 1 to substract points and for add, the same but replacing remove for add. Oh, ok it's the first time i'm developing a mini-game, how could I do that?

  • That looks like you're already accidentally using a fake player. You're adding/removing score from a player with the username "A-team" (they could be called anything), when they're not logged in/don't exist. That player isn't the team "A-team" and isn't in the team, even though they happen to have the same name as the team. If the person with the username "A-team" were to join (- isn't valid for creating usernames, so it's fine in this case), then the fake player scores you've added/removed would belong to them. I'll write an answer for how to test for fake player scores.

To test for the scores of the fake player you have representing the team, you'll need to use the /scoreboard players test command. This is because normal selectors (@a, @p, etc.) only select players that are online (/say @a won't say players who are offline or don't exist, for example).

The syntax for this command is:

/scoreboard players test <player> <objective> <min> [max]

So, for your example, you'll probably want to do:

/scoreboard players test A-team health 0 0

You can use conditional command blocks to run a command when this succeeds:
