They did become faster it seems, the only way to catch them is to run them up against a hill, and even then they often run up the hill so far that a player cannot follow them to capture. Please look at the speed and slow them back down again, or adjust the algorithm to make them dodge less, etc. I see them all the time and just have to ignore them, where I used to actively chase and catch them.
