Absurd Minds is a gaming community built around fun, friendly, competitive gaming. As a community, we attempt to create a safe and inviting atmosphere for players of all skill levels and identities. We do not tolerate bigotry or discrimination against anybody for any reason.

We enjoy cultivating this friendly and competitive atmosphere in all sorts of games, though we consider Counter-Strike:Global Offensive to be our "main" game. We host a variety of CS:GO servers as well as a Mumble server where people can hang out while playing various games or just killing time, and a Discord server for casual text chat. We welcome new and veteran players alike, and we expect everybody, regardless of skill level, to play competitively and as a respectful team member.

At Absurd Minds, we value what our community has to say. We want to make the gaming experience as enjoyable as possible, so if you have any suggestions on how to improve our community please let us know by posting to our forums.

(Keep in mind that Valve has chosen to blacklist servers running skin plugins, and ban associated user accounts, so AbsurdMinds will never run skin plugins on our servers, no matter how popular the suggestion is. This keeps us from having to run ads to pay for continual purchase of new accounts as current accounts get banned. It gives what we believe to be the best user experience in a server, with no intrusive ads, distracting skins, or extra plugins - which always degrade server performace.)

If you enjoy your experience at Absurd Minds, please consider making a donation. It costs money to keep Absurd Minds running, and while we would never require people to pay to play in our servers, it helps out when users give donations when they can. (If you give a donation, please consider leaving your SteamID in the comments of your PayPal transaction! We will add a "Donator" tag to your name in our 1v1 servers.)

Our Mumble server is public, and we invite anybody to come in! If you're looking for somebody to play a game with or just want some conversation, there is almost always somebody in there. Our Discord server is also a great place for casual text chat!
