We did have a guy drop by last night to donate reputation with a bunch of alts, but even those weren't sandbagged bases.
The Sarlacc pit is a tricky beast and it’s tenticals that are used to grab the squads are complicated.
Basically it was your rep dropping visitors that pulled you out of the pit last night.
While not a Sandbagger squad by definition, your newbies and lower hq guys who have under-developed bases pull down the base strength (not shown in your base strength rating) putting you within the reach of the all mighty Sarlacc and he did his job.
