Man you're the most awesome black person I've ever met. I wish I could be more like you. Plis teach me your ways. I too poor can't pay, but I promise to worship you.
I could be wrong on this, but as far as I know it depends on how well you tank with flag. If you're just running with it, you won't get as many points as you would if you had people attacking you. People can out tank and out damage the flag carrier which will drop your placement. I've gotten first rank on my ep (like I'm sure alot of other people have) from tanking people on me. If someone else is tanking and you're just running nobody is really attacking you, they'll most likely get more points than you. In other words, just because you have the flag doesn't mean you'll get rank 1 [:
