As it turns out...

Look for this first.
...that was it.
Hoping that's only it as there's other things I'm dealing with.
I've been forced to play bot matches only so far because the new keyboard I got (new system has USB ports instead of the usual plugin so I had to get a new one) is a bit smaller than what I had before and the keys (largely I only use the mouse for sniper stuff) aren't all in the same position. I either need to significantly adapt my play to it or get an adapter for my old one... though the old keyboard needed to be replaced.
That's more a me thing.
Guy who made the new system for me (don't have specs handy as I'm at work) also tossed in a 2 foot wide screen... which is BIG; almost needed a new desk. Ran into what I took to be another issue, or issues, while viewing. Ingame the screen is very VERY VERY
dark. On dark maps it's hard to see anything at a distance, even more of a problem in other gameplay aspects; although colors are seriously jacked up to way too colorful. Naturally I tried brightening under options (or just tapping F11) but that had no effect...
...intended to take screenshots to show but the ones I did look perfectly normal, making me think it may have more to do with how the monitor is handling things ingame.
My new graphics card, grabbed on the run by my fixit guy, is a Radeon R7 250 (for whatever that's worth).
This may also be a screen thing, too soon to tell, but things ingame seem shorter and thicker... or not playing for so many months and my perspective is a bit off.
Started off with Win7 when I got it back, but it upgraded to Win10 yesterday which is still weird to me.
