you can chase another fighter or just spawn and immediately blow up for no reason and it was a 'self destruct'?
so those hackers are still in the game?

I'm not really sure what you're referencing here, could you be a little more specific maybe?

Are spawning in and it's triggering a self destruct? Are you spawning in from a Hyperspace beacon from your team, if it's improperly placed you could be spawning right in front of an object that is self destructing you.

Anyways a little more context/explanation would be really helpful for us to help figure out what you're describing thanks.

you cant put down a beacon if there is an object in the way. i did spawn at the ship on the side of the map and can self-destruct immediately or a few seconds after i flown abit

Sounds like someone flying outside the map boundaries. those are exhaustion zones further out you go you get stacking debuff up to 5 stacks then go boom

was in a match a few days ago, where someone placed a beacon right in front of a big rock, and when you launched you hit that rock taking damage, before you even get in the fight, so it is possible, had it happen to me.
was one of those What The!?!?! moment

yeah people tend to forget beacons launch the way the pilot is facing so if the launch window is facing an obstacle you crash pretty quick

In TDM it is possible for the enemy team to be so overwhelming that they can place deployables around the cap ships, or park a vessel with EMP, or any combo of those. But if you see it happening in domination, that’s definitely odd.

Occasionally matches themselves can get bugged out. About 2 or 3 weeks ago there was a Kuat Mesas bugged on Satele Shan... you’d queue up, immediately get a pop, there would be no pre-match list of the teams or time to select your ship, you’d zone into the exact center of the map, and it would be a massive furball of ships. Kills weren’t being tallied and there was no match timer so it wouldn’t end until everyone on both sides finally left the match and it stayed empty for a while. It doesn’t happen often but maybe I’ve had it happen to me maybe twice this past year. Could it be related to that?

EDIT: in that match I had no control over steering, for some strange reason, so my ship was just spinning. I’m just wondering if you have a problem with your control set up that you are flying directly into the cap ship. I mean there is no collision detection with deployables or other ships so the only way for you to self destruct would be if you didn’t have control of your ship’s steering, either because of something really in game like Sabotage Probe or a mouse/keyboard input issue. Are you trying to use some sort of mapping software to use a joystick or gameplay to control your ship? Do you accidentally have some sort of keyboard macro going?

That was what I was experiencing in that bugged match, but bugged matches are highlighted by the lack of a score count, lack of a timer, and everyone spawning at the exact middle of the map.
