I haven't found a way to do it so I'm submitting it as a feature request, when I alt tab the game pause which is a bit annoying when playing turn based multiplayer matches because while I like to see what my friends are doing sometimes I have to alt tab to use the browser, chat etc... so it would be  nice to have an option to disable the pausing while the game is not focused

I second this.  It causes Sync issues as well!
Perhaps a "Borderless Window" would be ideal?

On that note, when I play in window mode at 1920x1080 the window actually spills into my other monitors.

But the pausing needs to be addressed.

In windowed mode, if you minimise down / up (continue to run the game in the task bar) you can use other open applications like Steam chat without putting the game into pause.

but only if you ride the tide,
balanced on the biggest wave,
you race toward an early grave."
