    I want to let the bot player participate in the match when there are too few players. Is there a way to achieve this in matchmarker?

    Hey, yes it's possible.

    To achieve this, use Rule Relaxations.
    This lets you enable or disable rules based on triggers over time. In your case, you probably want to relax the minimum number of players in a match after a couple of seconds if it can't be reached. This way, if there's not enough players, the match gets created, but with a lower number of players (under the original minimum), and in your game, you could check the number of players and replace the missing ones with bots.
