Being unable to read ingame chat messages from *DEAD* players

Currently from my test with another player (firefight), you can't read a DEAD person's chat message in the chat box while you are alive.

Is this intentional? Is this a good thing? I find it annoying and detrimental to team coordination.

@slazenger you can read them in comp and not in the casual modes. afaik this is because of "immersion" 😉
