Just wanted to pop in and confirm that we definitely made some improvements to these issues in our latest update. However, we aren't where we need to be yet and we are still working to make even more improvements.
Glad to see these issues have been resolved though for some of you folks.
I can confirm as a long time sufferer of the latency drops that this issue has vastly improved for my gameplay.
My thanks to the techs who rolled up their sleeves and tackled this issue.
