Getting blown up through cloak is fun
I'm so glad it has never been fixed.

It depends on what you mean by “getting blown up through cloak”. If some instant damage destroys your ship in a couple of seconds after cloak is engaged - that’s pretty normal. If you continuously get damage when cloaked no matter for how long cloak’s been active - then it’s not (unless it’s boarding)
Getting hit by an instant damage crew 2 seconds after the cloak is engaged is not "normal", but it is how the T'Ong (and others?) function when the AI is playing them. This bug has existed for a long time, but that doesn't mean we should accept it.
Just to compare - try going up against a Bounty with T'Kuvma or a T'Ong with T'Kuvma. Against the Bounty, you can engage your own cloak milliseconds before T'Kuvma activates, and you will not get hit. Against the T'Ong, you can activate cloak a full second before T'Kuvma activates, and you will get blasted.
(Disclosure: I use the Bounty, so I don't know if this behavior holds for a T'Ong vs T'Ong battle. But I assume it does.)
