Why can't single player bot matches be paused? (Edit: They can)

It would be a nice feature.

Edit: I was mistaken.


(I’m not a programmer or game dev, so take what I say with a grain if salt) I think it is still considered a custom/matchmaking match, but just has bots. Academy, iirc can be paused, and I think that is because it is a distinct mode from multiplayer.

Sorry, I was actually mistaken. What I thought was single player against bots was actually team multiplayer against bots, and it’s obvious why that couldn’t be paused. The bot match that’s accessible in Academy can indeed be paused.

That being said, why don’t training matches with bots keep track of score? That’s kind of lame.
