Hm, well, "teleporting around the screen" is what it will look like when you've got a particularly bad connection with rollback netcode. Could be it was, at least in part, suffering from the significant decline in player base making it harder to match people with others who have good connections. Though I really don't know what could be up with the jumping thing; sounds less like netcode and more like some kind of bug to me at first glance, but obviously I can't say for sure.
