What decides how many points per flag

Just wondering how the game works out how many points per flag you get. Sometimes I get 4 points and other times 1. It's not just the distance away from the flag you are either, there's something more to it.

after further investigation, i feel it may have something to do with how fairly the teams are balanced, if you are outnumbered i think you will get 2/3 points per flag, if you are outnumbering you will only get 1/2. Positioning also plays a large factor

it is based on your connection with the host so if u leg up your coonection by downloading a bunch of stuff on your computer while you r playing u will get more points just make sure you dont make it to leggy because u wont get any points i f u leg out of the game

Lag/internet connection.
If you are the host and upload a large file to rapidshare or youtube, you will get 4-7 points per throw.

This is correct, the person with the worst connection usually will get the most points per flag. I had freebird running on youtube.

You want the host to lag the game so everyone gets more points. Host is second on the list unless it's you.
