      9. Type these commands: (You can't change his score when he's offline, whenever he's tracked)

      10. Type these commands: (You can only change the score of online players, whenever other are tracked)
        /scoreboard players set @a Test 0


      It's only possible to change score for online tracked players.

      • Having the possibility to change the score an already tracked players.
      • Having @a selectors to change the score of all tracked players of the specified objective, additionaly to connected players
      • Having the possibility to add an offline player to the list of tracked player for one objective, if their names is given explicitly.

      • Since a player is tracked for a scoreboard and he's not on the server,
      • It's not possible to change his score, when we use his name explicitly or with selectors such as @a.
      • It's not possible to set a name for a player that's not on the server or non-existant player.
