ESL Wire Anti-Cheat
Wire is ready to be used in MW3 matches right now! It provides us with fair environment for competitions, prevents fakers and ringers, detects ring0 and ring3 cheats as well as yet unknown cheats. To get ESL WAC working properly with MW3 just remove it from your game list and re-add again.
Using ESL Wire throughout the whole match is mandatory - failing to do so may result in losing the match.
You can download the latest Version of Wire Anti-Cheat here.
If one of the teams has got dedicated server you are required to play on it. Server admin is responsible for setting up correct settings and restrictions. In case none of the teams actually owns dedicated server you will have to play Peer-To-Peer. Match host is responsible for setting up correct game settings.
We have created server files for you. You can download them here. All you have to do is upload them to your server and edit your current default.dspl that it loads our settings. After restart server should run correct settings. To use your own classes on a ESL settings server, go into private match lobby and set your classes there. There make sure that you have only the allowed weapons set, frag, smoke/flash and REVENGE as your deathstreak. This way, you will be able to use your own classes on dedicated servers with ESL ruleset config.
If none of the teams owns dedicated server then the person who hosts the game has to download our cfg and put it in /call of duty modern warfare 3/admin/. Then they will be able to load recipe from PC.
We have also made a screenshot for you to get the general idea of server settings. You can check it out here.
