Yes this is true, lower player count was already stopping me from playing and reducing sway was the last straw. The devs tried to get new players by making it more arcade but it only eliminated the core population of players who want realism.
1.0 was a bit much. 0.1 was a mistake. 0.25 feels like BF1. Me and my mates all felt like .65 produced the most cerebral firefight once you got the hang of it. Crouching and proning a shot with breath control felt great. You had a chance to return fire and play out a battle.
The most rewarding FPS kills I've ever had in 20+ years of gaming where on .65
