The Tactical Ploys ability that commanders activate encourages players to kill themselves fast to get 3 points. No matter if you win or lose when this ability is activated you get 3 points.
So what is the incitement to play a slow game and try to win compared to just go in and die?
EDIT: I realize you stop the other team from getting points, but I guess this is only a small motivation from yolo:ing. 
No blame should fall on the players doing this as this is just a case of not reflecting on the consequences from WGs part. 
CC/Streamers could maybe make a gentleman agreement to NOT use this ability?

Great event otherwise except it's a numbers game. The CC/Streamer with most followers (like Skill) has a huge advantage. Even though WG included rubber band mechanics,to help teams that fallen behind, I think the points should somewhat take the "average" performance of the team into account.  

Cheers people and piri piri! 
CYA on the battlefield!
GO baboons!

Of course. Did you think those that designed the streamer powers did not know this.

It is all planned.

 

It is probably an experiment to see how people will play if we motivate them with rewards, using all kind of methods. (the powers)

This delivers test data they use for their 7vs7 mode that failed spectacularly before.

 

This is a way to see how they can reintroduce it more successfully or to design new modes.

If your team has a winrate that is much lower than 50% it will help.

 

Otherwise just bring out the meme tanks and rush to a fast and glorious death.
