Improving clientside?

    This may be a weird habit, but since i often get 15-20ms wich is alot lower then the server latency, if often get killed when already in cover, trough a door etc.
    I tried to increase my ping trough putting up some youtube vids and i had less of those weird deaths.

    Does this actually work or is this just my imagination?

    Imagination, slowing down your connection actually makes it worse.
    The reason why you're getting killed behind cover is because the person who's shooting at you has high latency. Higher latecy = more delay so when you are already behind cover they still see you for your latency+their latency ms.

    For example you have 20 ms, your killer has 200 ms so he can still see you for little bit more than 20+200 = 220 ms when you are already behind a wall.

    2 laggers with 250 ms latency can see each other for a whole half second when already behind cover.
