"tied" match=loss of rank?

so, my pyromancer baby (level 22 sergeant) squared off against a level 28 life captain, and we tied. it was the toughest match i've ever fought (aside from the guy with immunity), but it was awesome and well-fought on both sides.



we were both down to almost no health, and he hit me with a seraph~ my resist was high enough that i didn't die from the hit; i got a tower up, and he fizzled. then, since i only had about 100 health left, i figured i had nothing to lose... so i took a really stupid chance and used immolate, with 2 blades... naturally, i died from my own hit, but the cast still continued and killed him as well.

at the end of the match, we got 14 tickets each, and our portraits were side by side, instead of one over the other. so we congratulated each other and talked about how awesome we were (it was the first tie for both of us) and ported back to the lobby. yay, us!

back in the lobby, i noticed that i'd downranked from sergeant to corporal; i pm'ed my opponent, and he said that he'd also lost his rank. is this normal? has anyone else ever "tied" a match before? any insight would be appreciated.

ps: if that guy somehow sees this~ you rock!

Haha Von I've actually never heard of a tie in pvp. I do think it is kinda strange that you both lost rank, why not just stay with your original rank? Hmm....

This happened to me once b4, my life was warlord and i doing 1v1 and i fouht a fre dude, same as you, and i used gnome and allmost killed him, he had a pet blade, tc fireblade, elemental blade, tc elemental blade and regular fireblade. He used a colossaled immolate and critical and killed hiself and dealing at 3900-4000 damage, not entirely sure of exact number but ik it was barely more than my max health thus killing me and him at the same time. we both lost 20 points but gained 14 tickets so idk :/

The same happened to me vonawesome1. When I was a private I once tied with a sergeant going second and we both received 14 arena tickets but I lost 14 points while the sergeant losing 17 points.

So I had a tied match today on my level 10 fire. (sorry its short I just accidently hit the back keyboard button) I set up for a elf-meteor combo these were my last two cards. I killed him but I ran outa cards that turn...so we both gained 14 tickets and I lost 21 rank and he lost 10. I don't have a lot of complaints KI but why? XD

lol, that happened to me once.

me and my opponent were each down to about 200 health each when we both ran out of cards... it quickly devolved into a pass-fest, and we were completely deadlocked until he finally fled (at least that's what it looked like he did) and i received credit for the win.

Yeah, I have tied a match before, and I lost rank to. IT shouldn't equal loss of rank on both sides, but gain of rank on both sides.

That happened to me once. On my level 18 balance I was in a 1v1 for about a half hour. I killed this commander with my last card, and when the results came up, it said we had both lost. I figured this was because I used my last card to kill him, but I still dont think its fair that this happened.
