I've learned to aim for the head. I'm not a terrible player, I'm not the best. I've never really been a frag king, I've always been an fast paced, action driven engineer. I'm more about the objective. I've very rarely been the highest fragger. I'm not sure how to set my config file. I'm running into a problem on certain servers where I can't attack an enemy even when my ping is decent and I'm literally shooting them in their face for 5 whole seconds. Even if they are standing still and I have no connection interruptions, it's like they are immortal.
When my ping is high, and I'm playing against strong players some times crouching, and hitting the floor helps throw off their aim, just enough so that I can survive an encounter with them and get in a frag. But when I play on servers like DRI .... (which I'm liking less every day, but there's actual humans there...)
The strangest things happen. I literally shot some one in the face today for 5 whole seconds, no damage until 6 seconds of shooting them... then they started taking on damage, my ping was about 58 they had like 180 ping. It sucks because my bullets don't do damage even when I'm hitting the target! I have to empty an entire clip before I even hurt some one on that server. What is that? Latency? Some one told me it was rubberbanding, latency... I don't know these terms but it's pretty suck.
On the ETC server I don't run into this problem, I unfortunately keep getting a 90 ping there, the highest ping of anyone there, many players run in the 20s...
On a good day I can actually do some damage there. I have my Ethernet plugged in to try to improve upon my reaction time.
Even when the target was standing still at DRI... 5 seconds of fire in the face... literally in the face... and no dings... or damage until it was about time to reload my clip!
Needless to say I don't want to play there anymore. I wish my ping was that great at ETC though... because when it was once, I did alright. ( As a medic pansy)
Is it because my computer is such an antique?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
