Currently, in the event of a tie on Voidstar, the winner is randomly chosen. We are going to be improving this with 1.2, but in the meantime, that is how winners are currently chosen for ties on Voidstar.

Again, I apologize for any confusion and thank you for letting us know about this.
Wow, we were right, lol.

I greatly appreciate the confirmation.

Thank you, Joveth, for replying and confirming what's going on. I hope Bioware will continue with this level of open communication in the future on all fronts.

This is false(for me). Unless someone here can prove me wrong(Which can be many people that have experienced otherwise), I believe whoever the defending team was first, wins in the event of a tie.

I hope I'm false... Why you may ask? It would look really pathetic on the Dev's part. Someone tell me I am wrong and link a vid.

Also, someone told me that theory a few weeks ago and when I criticized him, he asked me "Tell me, have you EVER lost in the event of a tie when you were defending first", which was later replied with "No".

*Edit*, It could just be good luck perhaps?

The third post in this very thread has a screenshot of someone who was on defense first and lost a tie.

What boggles my mind is why? WHY does every different CSR give a different and most of the time INCORRECT answer to question they don't know the answer to?

I politely suggest either instructing your CSR's better or at least stop them from constantly providing the wrong information. Just saying!

Why is it just the doors that count? Why not the bridges or the shields at the end, both of which have 8 second timers (same as the bombs/doors) to activate?

I would like to thank those of you who finally got an answer to this, I have asked multiple people in my guild what the effin tie breaker was and they all had different answers.

I was in a voidstar yesterday where we got the first door in a faster time than the other side, and we also got the bridge to the second but still lost even though they didn't get the bridge. To you developers why is the bridge there if it doesn't count, and why can some classes jump from one side to another?
