Systems that calculate a "winner" and show you numbers are for non MMOFPS games. Especially when you need a guide to even understand how the scores are calculated.
I appreciate your effort, but better use the time to think of a system that allows a faction to achieve (temporary) victories on the actual battlefield by actual player actions (like cont-locking in PS1),
Way to completly miss the intent of the WDS.

Cont locking was boring. Yes, it was a victory, and yes, we should get it back into PS2, but it was still boring.

People were asking for a proper winning condition since the day PS1 launched. The WDS can actually provide this win condition without screwing up the persistance of the game. Its brilliant, a win win for everyone. All they had to get right was the scoring system, and right now it seems to be right.
