I can only assume you killed your ships at exactly the same time.

 

Failing that, I have no idea.

Maybe we both set the same ship on fire and it was the first to die?

Usually in those situations the system keeps track of separate fire and flood ticks; I have seen ships set on fire AND torpedoed by me and one other person explode at the end of their HP, and sometimes I get the kill and sometimes I don't. I guess if the ticks are delivered out of phase they might eventually mesh and give both players credit for the kill, but that requires more knowledge of how the system handles D.O.T than I have. Either way, it's rare as rocking horse S....

I've seen this before.  When I saw it, the two First Bloods were two different ships that died in the same second.  One was a BB-->CA deletion, and the other was a DD eating a spread of torps in smoke.

(I launched the torps into the smoke and had a good laugh when the death ribbon popped up for the DD in the smoke, but I saw the cruiser die off in the distance at the same time.)
