Bad Company 2 Posthumous Penalties

A post on the Electronic Arts UK Community Forums by DICE's Joe Grant explains that they have removed the ability for players to collect points or communicate via VOIP while dead in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (thanks Voodoo Extreme). For VOIP, word is: "We found occurrences of people running into enemy areas, dying intentionally and using VOIP to notify their team of where the enemy was located." As for posthumous points, they say: "We intentionally removed 'the suicide bomber'. Loading vehicles with C4 and driving them into packed enemy locations to gain points when you die was something we looked at for some time," adding: "We realise people who die bravely fighting to the end also suffer a points loss at this point but it is difficult to separate the two in the current system."
