Just curious, was pointed out that your living teammates cant hear you when you're dead. As thats when I'm most talkative, was just wondering why that was.

Yea, dead people shouldn't be able to talk.
They're dead.

This shouldn't be news. It has always been like this. Yes, it's to prevent dead people from telling the living what is going on.

Because that's how it's been in competitive multiplayer (PC) games forever. They're using a third party program Ventrillo/Teamspeak and as far as I know there was really no way to tell if someone is using it or not so it was just allowed and it eventually became the norm. That was always my understanding.
On the other hand, in-game chat disables it by default, and for good reason. For example, I don't want to backstab someone and have him scream out my position if I'm sneaky enough to do it without anyone noticing.(or if their team is too stupid to notice) Or if I get a good flank kill as scout, or if I have a nice sticky trap set that multiple people have fallen for, etc. You get the picture.

Because this isn't low/gay comp play. This is mother fucking 16 vs 16 hardcore shit.
