You've no packet loss there. The end server is set not to respond to ICMP (ping) requests.

Hop 3 treats ICMP requests as low priority and doesn't always reply in the required time but still passes on the packets to the next hop (it's main job).

I've seen the same since around December in games.  Before that flawless for the previous year.

From what I can see the issue is not so much packet loss but packet latency spiking during routing causing jittering and while the game servers you are playing receive the packets they are considered "lost" as they took more time than expected to arrive based on your "normal" ping.

Woldn't hold your breath...
