I would like to make a CS:GO Server that people using the in-game casual matchmaking system can join.

But every time I make it it is created as a 'Community Dedicated' server as opposed to an 'Official Dedicated' one.

Does that mean that matchmaking only works on CS:GO Servers run by Valve?

As of now only official Valve servers can be joined through either casual or competitive matchmaking.

Community servers must be joined by using the "Browse Community Servers" menu under "Play".
