I'm trying to make a command for a hide and seek map but I'm having this problem. The following is the command I use:

/effect @a[team=S] minecraft:slowness 20 10

The selector @a[team=S] doesn't work. It says:

Selector '@a[team=S]' found nothing

This should work because I made sure someone was on that team (me) and the team did exist. Though no matter what command I use it still comes up with the same result. The map won't really work without it.

  • Most likely there is nobody on the team S. Make sure that no commands are removing you from that team. You can only be on one team at once, so anything that makes you join another team will also make you leave that team. – SirBenet Dec 11 '16 at 14:13
  • make sure there are commas around the team name (i.e. [team="S"] – Chemical Comrade Dec 12 '16 at 7:44
  • @FungusKing that's not required – QunSyBer Dec 14 '16 at 15:01

If you used the actual team name "S" as in /scoreboard teams add S and put players on that team, it should work fine. Try using /scoreboard teams add seeker and use that team instead. Additionally, try using a lowercase "s".
