EA has put out another gameplay video of the new Medal of Honor game, and having played the beta myself I can safely say it looks like they're taking a lot of community feedback to heart. Too bad the EA forums has been over swarmed with 12 year olds and trolls. That being said the new gameplay video looks sick, and the fact that dedicated servers will be made available to PC users is a big plus, especially since the new Call of Duty: Black Ops will feature dedicated servers, but they will be exclusively hosted by one company. (Source) This is probably the most unfortunate side of the usual PC users getting shafted argument, especially since there is virtually no valid reason for allowing only gameservers.com to host Call of Duty servers other then Treyarch getting a cut of the profits & having a killswitch for the servers when the next game in the series comes out. I myself have personally had a gameserver from gameservers.com reinstalled simply because a GS staff member failed to mention he had accidentally deleted all of my clan's gameserver files while doing a routine cleanup of cache files. Needless to say we're not the only ones who have had bad experiences with them. I'd hoped that Treyarch had learned from the past uproar about dedicated servers that Activision so badly botched in Modern Warfare 2, but it seems like Treyarch seems to be heading down a similar route with the hosting exclusivity.
