Normally, bot_quota is simply the number of bots that are added automatically on the server. If bot_quota_mode exists, it allows to interpret bot_quota differently to achieve more complex effects.

The allowed values for bot_quota_mode are in the following table. With the expression bot_quota we mean its value.

bot_quota_mode Effects
normal (and invalid values) The number of bots on the server equals bot_quota.
fill The server is filled with bots until there are at least bot_quota players on the server (humans + bots). Human players joining cause an existing bot to be kicked, human players leaving might cause a bot to be added.
Icon-Bug.pngBug:Counter-Strike: Global Offensive When a human player switches teams between T and CT, a bot is added.
match The number of bots on the server equals the number of human players times bot_quota.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive The number of inactive bots on each team with no human players equals bot_quota. It has the same side effect as bot_stop 1, although being independent from this ConVar.
