As the title implies, how am I supposed to get points if participating in a game will still reduce points even if I move and shoot people?

Where's the point in joining a game if all that'll happen is negative feedback from it...?

I am only guessing but it looks like it didn't count you as collecting any "points" for capturing bases because it was Dom. That's the only way I can think the reason could be, which is dumb cause it looks like you died twice and killed four people.

How long did you sit AFK before you moved and killed anyone? The reason you lost points is listed on the upper left side. Doesn't make sense that you still lost points though. Dumb game design indeed.

I've had this as well. Joined dom late, got killed a few times and game ended. -50 points.

This also happens with disconnects, or bugged entries to pvp, neither of which are the player's fault.

While I cannot claim that I did kill at least 1 person, I most definitely capped 1+ base.

Also, this pvp system seems a bit broken if it will count you as afk if you stay too long on the base pad (whilst moving around), even if you're getting camped by people who can one-shot you.

There's another example. 2 of us got -50 as the game was so unbalanced we were unable to capture anything. (Yeah, I played pretty terrible too, but this is an AFK tax, not a stupid tax.)
