How will 1v1 stalemates be handled?

But what if we spend that 20m fighting and finally decide to surrender? 20m of honest, hard fighting and no reward is fine, and that's what we did, but what if someone decides to give up? It was still 20m of honest, hard fighting. If you are so evenly matched that neither will win fairly, it seems a shame at times to just give up and walk away after so much effort.
I have also been in this situation. I'm usually in a group, but I frequently get separated or whatever. I'm running to my destination (on horseback of course) and get waylaid by a craid. I have a snowball's chance in Hades of surviving, so what is the point in trying? I could waste my bubbles and other heals with super long timers trying to survive a hopeless situation, or I can stand still and just let them whack away. Waste my skills in that situation, or try to hurry the process so that I can retreat to the rez circle and get back on track to my destination (by another route, of course). Is that rank farming? Did I want to die? No. But I also didn't want to waste my time/skills trying to survive.
