Another solution would be to penalise bombers who are lagging:

1) make it so they can't pick up a bomb in the first place (make this settable by server, and inform players clearly why they can't pick up a bomb when they try)

2) or make their bombs go slower according to lag (have a server setting for threshold of ping to start slowing down bombs, increments of slowness, increments of increasing ping. e.g. 200 ping = start penalising on bomb speed, penalising in increments of 5% slower, increments increasing for every extra 25 ping. So someone with a ping of 250 has 5+5+5 = 15% slower bombs).



Fact: Slower bombs are easier to catch.
