Looks like the game is going to remain in that dark corner.
The connection issues you're having is unlikely to "fixed" instantly. There's no magical fix to lag as there is always going to be lag depending on distance to other players and host selection.
It can be improved through better host selection and matchmaking however you can forgot about the latency being fixed to the point where all your bullets register instantly.
I have the same issues as you but I don't expect any instant fix that will completely remove lag.
neither do I but I just wanted to put a point out here because I feel like this needs to be adressed / herd. I understand that they can't do it RIGHT NOW but i'd appreciate if they just decided to slowly and baby step it up till the real thing but unfortunately not going to happen.
