Had all 3 control points for about the first 2 minutes of the game, had a score of 600-100. They pushed B and captured A for about 20 seconds, and immediately started beating us.

Somehow over the course of the next minute they managed to break us, despite only holding the points for a very short amount of time, and us having a boosted point the entire game. We capped B back and broke them, then won.

I'm just trying to figure out how the scoring system works, and how we managed to lose almost 400 score from losing 2 points.

When the a team caps a point they gain 100 points opposing team loses 100. Capture 2 and that is a 400 point swing.

For each zone you have captured you get a temporary 100 points added to your score, so after you lose 1 control point 600-100 turns into 500-200 lose another and its 400-300 and so on. Killing those AI soldiers in the middle also gives you extra points, as well as killing players.

That's a little ridiculous that in 2 caps a team can take the lead after a 6-1 lead against them.

What I don't understand is how come the guy that has less objectives, less kills, and same death count gets more score then me?

You can get a pretty good score just by sitting and defending one objective the whole match, or killing tons of soldiers, or revives.

If you defend and boost a zone all game you can easily get 300+ points without doing much besides standing still.

Lol I agree, just telling you why someone who hasn't done as much as you can have more points.

Go capture the nearest zone to their spawn and proceed to slaughter them wave after wave.

If you are defending a cap, and an enemy contests it, and you kill him within the cap... you get quite a boost to your score.

Standing in a zone adds to your Renown score fast as others have said, but also when you then leave that zone and do something, you get extra score for it because you built up a Renown 'bank' when you were standing in that zone. If you go and kill some Minions after standing in a zone, the Renown bank comes into play, and instead of 2 per Minion you will get 20 or 15 or 10 per Minion, for a short time. This is why you should always stay in a zone for a while to build up your Renown bank. This is also why some people with few kills and Objectives can have very large scores.
