Are these basically the same ? If I subscribe to Ticks and want history, I'll use OnTicksReceived but if I just want real-time then I use OnPriceTick?

In addition, am I ensured not to lose ticks with both of these methods?

OnPriceTick is related to quote updates. OnTicksReceived is about tick stream that includes as historical ticks as well real-time ones.

Quote subscription provides throttled data. Tick subscription - all ticks.
