Feel free to remove if it's not in the correct category, but I was playing ranked today and had a game the came down to the wire. We killed the last enemy ship at around 00:01 left on the clock, but the game registered it as a loss? If the kill happened after the tick that ends the game by time, it wouldn't register the kill, would it? 

Edit: re-uploaded scoreboard with blurred names

Likely their points ticked over right before they died. The game runs just a split second after victory conditions are met.  You could upload the replay if you want further verification.

The clock you see and the clock on the server are not perfectly synchronized.  The server registed game over before it registered a kill.

That's what I'm thinking.

sorry to hear of your loss, i've had this exact same thing happen to me literally thousands of times!!

except it's been in Random battles... on occasion the battle is declared a defeat as early as 5 minutes in!!

but seriously, it qualifies as another example of theft. everybody has experienced kill stealing in a game, on this occasion it was victory stealing. kill stealing is within the team, and victory stealing is done by the Red team, to the Green team.

It is deliberate, diabolical, pernicious, and very common in the game!! With my stats, it's happened in more battles than not, so i am somewhat of an expert. To the best i am aware, this is the first time I've seen someone else report it, with visual verification.

I am willing to suspect, the red fleet won on pts before the final red ship was sunk..

If anything, I think its a visual bug... The end result still stands, its the end all to deciding who won. In this case, red won.
