I find that a lot of times, when using Community Quick Play, I end up being pushed into a server with many bots, and no real players.

Playing a game using "Find a Game" works fine, but Community Quickplay is one I frequent the most.

How can avoid these bot-ridden servers?

You could filter servers with the tag "bots" for starters. Not all include this tag though, but it is a good start. – user28015 Apr 29 '13 at 5:51

There is no real way to avoid getting into games with bots when you use the quickplay/matchmaking options. Browsing for games manually is the only way to assure you get into a game with real people (or playing competitive).

+1 to Brian, however if someone leaves a competitive match, you still would be playing with a bot. – Neffer_23 Nov 22 '14 at 19:48
