both new dawn maps with 3 cap circles, our team had majority at final count down - second one no mistake - 2 ships alive each team - not in gunnery range

Would be great if a draw no longer counted as a loss. Was so much fun when after playing a hard fought game you got a draw and that small amount of rewards. Side note Red how is the Langley treating you?

But a draw is a loss for both teams, so why wouldn't it be a loss?

 

 

Domination random battle - had to check replay to see name of battle type

 

Ah yeah, they made them wins after 0.4 c:

that should reduce the draw rate across the player base

 

Eh, most of the draws I experienced in CBT was in standard, not dom. But I guess it'll lower a little.

somehow that was 2 "almost draw" battles today alone . . . so to my logic that's a significant change

A draw in this game is not a loss for both teams rewards are on a different bracket than a loss in this game. You get XP and credits closer to a victory than a loss.

Yup. Had a game in my Minekaze time out that turned into a win thanks to it being Domination. Didn't know that was a thing until that moment. Netted 6k xp off that battle :D

Had my first last night also. Clock was at 15 seconds dingle berry teamates were chasing a cv into a corner but red team had more cap points and two of the three caps. We had 3 ships left to their one. I said in chat " here comes the draw" another teamate said nope they win and sure enough they did. In CBT that match would have been a draw so guess they did change it, used to be you had to either cap out/kill all to get the win. Would rather it be that way honestly, since it wouldn't reward someone who hung at the back of the map (irregardless of ship type) and then runs to say alive simply because his team was able to get a few more cap points. Of course the flipside of it I like also, because it punishes the dipshits  who don't pay attention to the caps and go haring off after a ship or two they would probably never catch anyways and costs themselves  and their team a win. Sigh...lol

Draw to win is dumb, this encourage lazy and cheap play. Instead of play hard to win, now peoples can just hold out for draw and still win.

About a third of my games at high tier are draws so my stats would be terrible if they were counted as a loss heh.

But draws gives the same exp as a loss so it's technically a loss.

I noticed it also...so far 80 games and NO draws.....CBT, played about 800 games with a 9% draw rate...so much better, I would rather lose than draw.

Another fail. A draw should never count as a win. Bad choice for a game element. Just another stupid decision from mediocre employees.

Eh, you can reason that in domination the side that has the most points when the timer is out is the side that is 'dominating'. I guess.

 

Still get draws on north standard battle a good bit in higher tier games because people dont push sometimes.

If you had three cap circles you were playing domination.  They have changed the objectives in domination so that the team with the most points wins if game time elapses.  No draws in domination.
