I am making a server where I want to spread the players in the lobby A to Area A without it affecting the players in Lobby B or C. I hope that makes since. This is in Minecraft Bedrock Edition.

I tried:

/spreadplayers -96 -4 0 30 @a[x=-21,y=0,r=10]

But even when I have someone in that area it says "No targets matched selector".

    y=0? Your players are at the bottom of the world?

After typing /spreadplayers in chat to examine its parameters, here is a functioning command:

/spreadplayers <x value> <z value> <spread distance> <max distance> <victime/targetSelector>

on a side note: spread distance is how far apart the players should be from each other.


You have to make Lobby A far enough away from Lobby B and C so that the command block doesn't affect it. I am also pretty sure you need to add @a

  • Why do you need to add @a?

  • Because you need a target. @a is the target option you need
