As a guardian tank i've completed my fair share of huttball in 3min, it all depend on your comp and how dumb is the other team.

1st goal : Out of the gate, sentinel run buff, shadow pick up the ball, sage set up for pull top mid, shadow force sprint to endzone, rougly 40sec in-game.

2nd goal : Leap mid unremitting up, awe, pick up the ball, walk to top mid, guardian leap, force push an ennemy endzone, switch with shadow for the pick up.

3rd to 6th goal is just a rince and repeat.

Most of the huttball hack are actually good players abusing dumb one.

Faster huttball i've ever done was 2:43sec, all legit plays vs dumb ppl.

i've seen glitching where someone appears as though they're flying around the board.. or warp from mid with the ball to the endzone where they're scoring in a second or less.. or where they're able to run 2 or 3 x's faster than everyone else the entire length of the board or the warzone rather than short buff-related sprints. there's also a way to glitch yourself into the wall where you can shoot as a sniper or ranged other players while youre untarget'able and can kill with impunity and no way for you to take any damage.

much of this is in huttball though as the NPC says cheating is encouraged so maybe they're just taking the hutts seriously lol. i have yet to see anyone kick the ball as they say "hutts dont have feet"

Can't say that I'm very surprised by seeing all these topics popping up, on my server i am seeing a lot more suspicious activity in the last couple months then i have been use to seeing. most of these are isolated incidents
and in most cases there is likely a group involved. just the other night i was in a voidstar match where my team managed to keep the enemy at the starting door for 5 mins, when we were on the attack we had blasted through the starter door in under 4 mins and got the bridges lowered moments later, we thought we had won. but somehow we lost!!! (Must have been a glich, I'm hoping) The best thing that anyone can do to prove that "Hackers" Are real or not is to record/screenshot a match

Unfortunately, it's really easy to think what you're seeing is a hack, when the fact is that it's just a bug and Hero engine sucking.

It's definetely something that exists, however, it isn't an epidemic on my server (Jung Ma), but i'd still like this to be dealt with.

Any player who sees something like this I urge you to report. I was once in a Huttball match and someone was clearly speed hacking (on our team) and I asked if anyone had Fraps or anything like to record their screen and enough people do have those kinda programs.
Firstly let me say there are hacks !
BUT everything you have described is NOT a hack, but different class abilities and teams working together
Learn the different class abilities, learn the tactics and learn what works in WZs
Crying "Hax" every 5 mins is why people tell you there are no hacks and reporting people who aren't hacking is why Bio does nothing to real hackers because they are overwhelmed with these false reports

There are hacks and they are more prevalent on certain servers... You may even see an influx now bad PVE conquest farmers hack so they think they are good pvpers... But don't cry hack all the time... Ask the pvpers if they have seen that and what it might be... There is usually an explanation

Here is a thread I have posted in, out laying the hacks that I know of and how they do it... Hopefully this will explain what a hack or exploit is and stop you from reporting everyone... Of course there are hack deniers in there too... There always will be

Answer? They opened the same amount of doors you did in less time. The game finishes there. No one hacked anything.

2. Speedhacking.

Answer? Marauder/sents carnage/combat specs (you will see the Ataru form on their character, it is yellowish/orange, as opposed to blue/red), can group sprint people at 80 percent speed. Add to that? Force sprint can be used in stealth by sins/shadows.

3. Immune to CC.

Answer. Everyone hit them with their cc at once. This is a no no. Add to that sins/shadow can go force immune/tech immune. I have this happen all the time on my shadow (too much CC on one target). I will vanish/stealth and stealth cc, to prevent a fresh spawn from hitting our capper. I sit there waiting for them to trinket so I can stun them. What does someone do? Runs up and hits/dots them, or worse stuns them. Now they trinket and are at full resolve (white bar on their char). They can't be CC'd.

Am I saying there are no exploits? No. There are exploits in every game. Do I see them less in this game then others? Definitely. GW2 is far worse and so is WoW.
This ^ is well explained... Please listen... Nice work

This is true... But are you sure about your guilds and is it the whole guild or just a few bad apples??
Also putting them on ignore won't stop you queuing with them... Only thing you can do is leave a match with hackers... Even if on your team... If all non hack people did this, then they would have no one to play against a except other hackers
