Stalemate...
So, I played a battle today and ended up with everything destroyed bar a handful of enemy fighters and 4 cruisers (2 mine, 2 enemy). Unfortunately, all my frigates had been fitted for assaulting shields while my cruisers were focused on punching through armour afterwards. At first this seemed like it had been a good idea as most of the enemy ships just got wiped aside. But after things stopped exploding, all I was left with was 4 stationary cruisers throwing buckets of water at brick walls, so to speak, and the enemy fighters (the half a dozen that were actually left) did nothing but buzz around their cruiser escorts... not that they would have done much to my cuisers anyway.

I read through the manual and it said that if it looked like the battle was a stalemate, the one with the most hitpoints/highest score would be declared the victor. Well, I sat and watched those cruisers slug it out for a good 5 minutes and even jacked up the speed to the full 4x for half that time. Nothing. Zip. Nada. Those ships just kept firing. I would have happily admitted defeat if not for the 60/40 score that was on the board. Finally, I gave up and admitted defeat.

My question is, does anyone know just how long it will take for a stalemate to register/be declared and what the conditions need to be?

i think its not about the percent of fleet destroyed/left, but about the value of the remaining fleet.

I don't know how long it takes but I can confirm the stalemate resolution happens, at least in conquest, been a while since I played other modes. Also, I am pretty confident it is about the percentage, hence why percentage display changes colour from between red and green depending on which side has more % of fleet standing.
