Anyone else randomly exploding?

Once it literally happened to me in the actual objective cap zone, I ducked behind a wall for cover and SPLAT, randomly died and a message flashed on my screen for half a second, all I caught was the word "protected"

It's happened to me a bunch of times in a bunch of different maps in completely random areas, and it is confusing also annoying as hell.

So one wall of cover inside one of the objectives in a map I can't remember which is a protected spawn area?

It happens completely at random, often around the middle of the map, not even remotely close to the enemy spawn.

You're entering protected areas and the game, at the moment, is not very good of informing the player and/or giving them enough time to move out of it.

With regard to the cap-zone, protected areas can change when objectives change hands. I think the following quote sums up your experience:

"Why take yourself to the protected zone, when the protected zone can come to you?"

Protected area should be visible on the map because it is frustrating when you go into one and you didn't know.

IDK if this is the thing you're referring to, but it sometimes happens that the zone you are attacking suddenly gets "protected" when the enemy team captures a vital zone (e.g you're attacking the Mess Hall on 'Barracks', and the Russians capture the NCO Barracks - happened to me a couple of times)

It's irritating for sure, sometimes, you fight your way to the enemy area and when finally there the area dissapears because the enemy captures another area and you get the message ''protected area'', which doesn't even give you enough time to get away.

TWI has proven the theory of spontaneous combustion. You should be honored to have had a small part in it. :D

Hey just dont enter the protected area you spawn camper :D
Problem is there is a delay in the spawns moving to the next, like a huge delay, map says they have moved but they dont.

Last week I ran in to cap along with about 5 other guys and one by one we just popped, no warning or anything, it was just like something out of Event Horizon.
