Sparrow, I don't think you get what I am saying at all. You should really read the post, instead of coming in here and saying it's a waste of time.
There is a difference between pausing by bringing up the main menu, doing one of those multiplayer pauses, and having a Medieval Total War 2 style or BioShock style pause. They are all very different things.
As I was saying, the ability would be ridiculous online because it would just be used to annoy people. The feature should be single player, only.
