I've been noticing a peculiar amount of skins being uploaded to gamebanana. The type that get filtered out from valve servers and community servers alike. Now, that's all well and good, if a community can be made for mods that basically can't be used. But I feel like I'm missing something. I haven't ran into any sv_Pure 0 servers, community or official. And I find it a little hard to believe people are making so many skins that can't be used in multiplayer. Where can I find these servers, how populated are they and keep in mind I'm in the NA region.
Personally, I just blacklist any servers where I can't use mods (which I'll first know if I can or not after joining them, though). Do this enough times, combined with favouriting servers where you can use mods, and you might get lucky.
