Did you check whether the consensus weight *fraction* also dropped?
If all consensus weights dropped by a certain factor, there's no
change in the probability of clients choosing your relay at all.
Take a look at Atlas' or Globe's consensus weight fraction graphs and
see if they changed over the past weeks or months.
All the best,
