Some fop scrivened: We all remembered the BF2 “Commander supporting himself while in a tank ignoring his team” worst case scenario, and that’s something we wanted to avoid happening again.
Pshaw. Commander Kick Votes were a common occurrence let alone the exact mechanism in place to avert this so-called "worst case scenario".
Also, much to the dismay of actively playing commanders, ModManger enabled current BF2 servers discourage and automatically kick commanders that violate pre-defined rules.
Lastly, preventing the commander from being a team-player is not only a foolish notion, but BF2 had a completely different scoring calculus for commanders. The commander scored points as a function of how many points his team had.
This peculiar vision of the BF2 commander as uberfeildmarshallerdragon only exists in Lead Multiplayer Designer Andersson's Quixotic Fantasies!
