Survival Dead/Alive Players Chat

The question is simple.
In a survival game, should players who are dead only be able to commicate with other dead players?

This would prevent distracting text, and also "spies" (Dead players who tell the other player where the enemy is)...

Yes/No.

Definetly, I hate when players give away positions after they die..and this is a pretty simple fix.

Absolutely. Ghosting ruins survival games. It doesn't seem like this would be difficult to implement and it would certainly improve survival matches. Perhaps it should be made a server-side option.

I voted yes because I hate when some retard is spying >_< however I think there should be about 3 sec after you die where you can talk in the living ppls chat for that last "efc escaping up" or "incomming down" as U would in normal >.< (thats the only "spying") I do when I play Survival anyway..

I "spy" only to counter enemy "spying", so I said yes, It'd give the dead something to do, still, and the players still alive can get on with their game.

Yeah, I agree there should be a 3-5 s delay before a dead player is muted for alive players. There should be a time to say the last word.

But then the other team won't know that I'm urinating on their corpses :(

Serverside option.
