Please note that when you're caring the flag, you actually have a decrease in movement speed. That fact, coupled with the fact that juggling let's you move at sprint speed, causes the flag juggler to move twice as fast as the stealth cap player.
With other players being able to move so fast while they hunt you down, the movement speed increase is more than worth the other team knowing what direction you're moving.
I think you'll find that stealth capping may net you more personal flag capture, but juggling will net your TEAM more captures, as the flag will almost always be closer to your base if you die, allowing an easier time for team mates to finish a capture.
So I guess it can depend on if you want personal capture glory, or if you want to give your team the best chance to win.
Don’t try to spin this where people who don’t flag drop are selfish while people who do just want the best for the team. I’d actually argue it’s more the opposite, but unless we have access to the minds of each and every player, let’s not generalize.
The only way someone can go double the normal flag speed is when they’ve practiced it a bunch and have mastered it. The vast majority of players including myself haven’t and just move at base speed whenever they drop it. They reveal their whereabouts to the enemy team just to go a tiny bit faster. I’ve lost countless games because of this and it’s infuriating.
