It seems there is a new cheat that impacts the opponent football players' performances. In fact, in almost all the matches in the last times that I played in Division Rivals 9th division, my players were always slower and dumbest than the opponent's players, with a clear one-side delay.
It happened once that even tho my football players were way slower than the opponent's players I was able to score for the 1-0. Then the opponent paused the game and magically my players became faster again. Most probably the opponent disabled the cheat.
This always with 16-18 ms of ping. Then, I believe that it was not a problem caused by the servers.
