Why BOTs aren't allowed to go in the pool? I would like to suggest an idea : BOTs can go to the pool, and players, when they create a game, have an option to desactivate or activate pairings with BOTs
It could be a good idea!

On Lichess we use the word "pool" to refer to the lobby. Thibault explained that having BOT-BOT games in the lobby which nobody watches and which don't count for anything is a waste of resources...

Still, I would suggest that arenas are different; there could be an option to allow BOT accounts in arenas (just as there could also be a rating cap for arenas, so people develop bots that humans want to play against).
