You should be happy about this. In CBT/OBT about 1 in 10 matches was a draw.

I've seen 2 draws in random and 1 in ranked. I don't remember the circumstances of the ranked draw, but 1 draw in random was due to the last ships ramming each other and the other was tied on points.

Only saw it once in 10k matches. and statically it's considered a loss. If you did not win it's considered a loss,

It actually doesn't count to your loss percentage as it wasn't a loss, but since it was a game that you didn't win it doesn't count towards your win percentage.

Much more than that. Hell with those damn stealthy fail dds rinning away? It was around 20-30% 

It was so bad WG even turned standard battles into domination format.

I experienced a draw this evening in CO-Op. The futility of two bot CVs trying to kill each other from full HP... I didn't stick around.

IIRC, it was about a 20% draw rate back in Open Beta during Standard Battles.  Part of it was the lack of domination points as part of the victory determination process.  And part of it was dopes who would leave caps to chase down a last remaining enemy ship when there wasn't much time left on the clock and not enough time for anyone else to get to the cap and cap it out.

Players seem a little smarter today in this regard.  But then again, with domination points added to standard battles, it's extremely rare to end up with draws.

I have had one draw that I can recall where there was one ship left on each team.  Myself and the enemy ship.  And we killed each other in the exact same moment.  Draw.  That was a case where it was hard to feel bad about a draw, unlike those times when someone caused a draw through greed and stupidity.   The last 2 ships killing each other and causing a draw is actually sort of cool in its own way.  A battle between teams that fought to the very end.
