Cloudflare DNS routing


I live in Netherlands. I used Cloudflare DNS in my router. In Pingplotter I always get 5 hops to reach Cloudflare DNS and used to be good when gaming. But last 5 days I can see the routing got changed and It always goes through Germany and gives me high ping time. I can see from Cloudflare status page that there is a server in Amsterday. Why there is a sudden change in performance? Is it something within Cloudflare. i apprecaite your help.
