The netcode much worse now...

I recently came back from a 2 - 3 year hiatus and I cannot describe it but the netcode felt much more stable back then, half my hits do not reg and this is based on good low ping servers based in EU,

I work in I.T support so naturally I based my findings on logic and facts, so far I have fine tuned my settings based on the following;-

So based on this information, please don't tell me it is subjective, I would say personally and modestly I am above average player but I guarantee my hits genuinely do not hit half time, I even asked random players across multiple servers with equally reasonable ping and general consensus is that is worse, what changes has been done over the 2 - 3 year period in regards to netcode?

I seek a professional technical answer please, thank you.

    I'll be the first to tell you I am NOT an expert but it seems Trace Route could be used to monitor your connection to a specific server over a period of time when noticing issues with the 'netcode' as it seems clear you don't have an issue with bandwidth throughput and could be experiencing issues with a specific node in the chain towards the server. This thread talks about hit reg and how to measure it objectively with logic and facts, especially after not playing for years which would indicate you may not be as immediately skilled as you used to be years ago:

    Thanks for getting back to me, oh yes my skill has definitely taken a plunge I admit that of course but it still doesn't feel quite right, thanks for pointing me in the right direction though, I'll give that thread a good read!
