      I noticed a bug when I tried to play my world in the latest version (currently world is saved in version 1.12.2).
      Problem is that the most Scoreboard values are not showing.

      After checking the scoreboard.dat in nbt-explorer I discovered what the problem is:

      In 1.14.x names and structure of the stats-file changed, so the stats muss now be accessed with a different name / path.
      The scoreboard file seems to be not updated when opening the world, and in still contains the old names, which are now "invalid".

      Expected behavoir:

      • When opening a older world in version 1.14.x, the scoreboards should be displayed like before updating the world

      Actuall behavoir:

      • Scoreboard file is untoched from the update
      • All "old" stats-names in the scoreboard-file are not "invalid" and they are removed the next time you execute any /scoreboard- command
      • Result is, that the invalid objective-names are not shown in 1.14 (or higher) version of this world
      • When you try to add or modiify objectives the "old" will be completely removed from the scoreboard.dat what results in loosing your statistics

      How to test:

      • Create or open any world saved bevore version 1.13
      • Create any scoreboard objectives and assign displayslot
      • leave the world and restart game in the latest version (or any other affected version)
      • open and/or convert the world to this version
      • check your scoreboard (look at you screen, and you will see nothing, try
        /scoreboard objectives list

        and all objectives (which are no dummy objectives) will be gone

      How to fix:

      • When opening scoreboard file check if it contains a "DataVersion"
      • if it does NOT contain this, it is saved before 1.14 and needs update
      • To Update the files simply walk overall objectives and check for old stat names and replace them to the new syntax of 1.14
        e.g. replace
        • stat.leaveGame


        • stat.mineBlock.minecraft.iron_ore




      I tried to use the "optimize world" Option with a backup of my world, the result was the same, Scoreboard file was NOT Updated.

      I made another test with the minecraft-server.jar--> same issue, scoreboard is not updated.
