I agree; the deathcam gives away the position of your killer and makes
sniping or sneaky tactics virtually useless; the freecam allows you to
roam the field and check out ALL the enemy positions while dead. This is
one thing CS has solved elegantly: 2 extra settings, one that locks on
teammates after the kill (without explicitly showing the enemy's
position) and one that justs fades the screen to black when you die;
until you respawn. It would indeed benefit tournament play if one or
both of those were added to battlefield.

By the way one extra question; in 1.4 there will be a GUI vor the
kickvoting system. Will that GUI also be applied to mapvotes and such? I
can imagine a vote for extending the time would be cool on publics; but
now im probably talking 1.5/1.6 or the likes ;)

Is there a server setting that disables the DeathCam (that shows you who

killed you) and also disables the FreeCam (forcing you to only see your 
teammates while waiting to respawn)? This would seem to be the desirable

setting for tournament play.
