Or I may be reading into it; in any case I'll watch them a bit longer.
I've noticed this. I have seen the speed hack, so I know that's in game. And the stand in the center ball holder thingy in hutt ball and they track sideways back to towards their starting area when they jump out. Not sure what the purpose of that is.

The 30 second lag spikes that often result in a disconnect.

It's not the internet. Web pages work fine when it happens. No other games do this to me.

But I'm not entirely sure it's a lag hack either. When it happens, I can't get the launcher to start the game again. Web pages are still working fine.

There's something specific to either the Hero Engine or Bioware servers that is probably the cause of it. That means no fix is inc so just get used to it.

thats exactly what happens to me and it just happened two matches in a row

once right when the enemy team came to my voidstar door and once halfway through a huttball when the enemy team finally started mounting a comeback

Nothing new to me. I've seen people do some lag switching before in warzones. Not sure how they are getting away with it but Bioware should put some more emphasis on catching cheaters that ruin the game.
Toons: 50 Sith Assassin (Darkness/Madness hybrid)), 50 Cyborg Mercenary (Bodyguard), 50 Sith Marauder (Carnage), 50 Ratattaki Sniper (Lethality), 50 Sith Vanguard (Shield Specialist/Tactics hybrid), 50 Sith Sorcerer (Corruption/Lightning hybrid), almost lvl 50 Jedi Guardian (Defense).

Oh they've already enlightened us with their incredible knowledge, oops I mean denial.
Oh, okay. Just saw it. I'm more relieved now.

Plenty of hacks in this game, I saw once a sorcerer doing Force Camouflage + Saber Throw...

One of these days someone who actually does hack/cheat whatever you want to label it as will grow some balls and admit it. Why would he do this? Because he no longer cares.

This person will be someone everyone knows/trust/believes is a legit player and who is seen participating daily.
This person will finally get bored with the game and say F*** it! Hey dudes, guess what........

When this happens a few things will occur.

1) The people who say that cheating doesn't exist in the game will have to eat the hat of my choice.
2) The game designers and their suits above them will have to openly address it to the community and fix it asap.
3) The majority of offenders will get banned, the legit players will stay, and once and for all we'll know who the best pvpers REALLY are.
4) PVP will improve which benefits everyone. Number 3 also benefits everyone involved.

In addendum to number 2, yes i'm aware that BW has addressed speed hacks etc. I do read the launcher when i log in. I'm simply referring to a NEW "state of the game" "we're dropping the hammer" type of response.
