When using the stat.fallOneCm objective for Scoreboard, the score does not show the correct amount. It will only increase whether you fall a long distance or a short distance. It seems to track the amount of times a player has fallen rather than the distance. However, it will sometimes increase by 2-3, but not for any obvious reason.
