Voidstar is way more equivilant to a race than a scored sport, time wins not points. They say the fastest one wins not the ones with the most points. What is another thing that the person who finishes a certain set of objectives based on time and speed .... oh yea .. a RACE.

1. There is plenty of room to put a score if it was a score, they put one in huttball, they display the "life" left in all the other WZ why would this one be so different?
2. There is no score you just want it to be a score so you can feel 0-0 is a tie and not two teams failing completely. This is a matter of achieving objectives in a certain amount of time .. it is a race if anything. An equivilant would be a NASCAR race where not one single car made it to the finish line. They don't say we all tied 0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0 lets split the money or pretend none of us lost.
3. The map indicates how many objectives you achieved, like in a race how many which lap you are on

Hey everyone! I just talked with Rob Hinkle on the PvP team about this, and he let me know that:

1) Yes, right now, if neither team breaches the first set of doors, the winner is determined randomly (in case anyone wasn't sure).

2) We have a change coming that will determine the winner in this case by taking each team's number of kills into account.

Thanks for posting to let us know your thoughts on this topic!

If no one on your team dies, you can't possibly lose the match, right? : D

Sure, that might work for VS, but man would that hurt if a team like that were on any other warzone =p.

Thanks for an official response on this. This issue has raised eyebrows since beta, and is long overdue for a fix.

Some people have been running 4 heal teams. I imagine they would be pretty good for the new VS tiebreakers, lol.

I wouldn't personally do it; I like having balanced teams.
