Medal of Honor is quickly approaching it's release on October 12th and it's time to talk about multiplayer PC servers! Medal of Honor will operate on dedicated servers, and while the executable will not be released publically, servers will be available for rent through the following selected game server providers:
4NetPlayers
Art of War Central
BrainStorm Network
Branzone Inc.
Clan-Server.at
Computer Games Online
Diabolic Servers
Dovermed
Eliott Ness
Fragnetics
ForTeam.ru
GameHosting.co.uk

Anyone who rents a server will be able to control it through the game server provider's admin panel along with the game server's remote administration interface.  The remote administration interface is a very simple command console, which will be included with the server's documentation.  However, with that being said, it would be much easier to use one of the graphical clients that are developed by various independent tool developers.
We have offered the following developers pre-release access to the game client and server, in hope that their tools will be ready in time for the game's launch:
- MOHCC (by the creators of BC2CC)
ProCon
Big Brother Bot (B3)
- Other tool developers are welcome to join in as soon as the game has launched.
Now on to ranked and unranked modes.  When the server runs in ranked mode, any score and awards that a player collects is reported to the master servers.  The server administrator is required to abide by the "Rules of Engagement," so you and everyone else can enjoy an entertaining online experience.  In unranked mode, no player progression is reported to the master servers.  However, the server administrator has more control and can apply arbitrary game rules.  All game modes support a maximum of 24 players.
Medal of Honor also supports PunkBuster.  It is up to each server administrator to enable this option on his or her server.  However, if the server is ranked, then PunkBuster is mandatory.  We have sent out pre-release game builds to the following organizations to ensure compatibility with streaming services before launch:
PBBans
GGC-Stream
PunksBusted
There is also an option to to reserve dedicated server slots on the game server.  Each reserve slot will replace a normal spectate slot.  Spectators will be allowed to free-flight around the map, however there is no 1st/3rd person spectate option as well as no demo recording feature.
