Everything else that you don't see on this list is disabled, including shields, perks, attachments and so on. Using unallowed weapons may lead to losing a round or the whole match.


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.

Server settings


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.

We have updated this server cfg so make sure you download a new one!

Can't you tell this guys has only ever played MW2... Paperkut the reason the Spas and Models are left in the rules is because it takes skill to actually use one. In COD4 EMS you are allowed 1 shotgun per team and thst doesnt mean you have to have 1 per team its very rare you see a shotgun.
nice rules change, though y Arkaden is still in the maplist?
It has no competitional value...
Bootleg in mappool??? Please remove it. Its the same map how mission.

And how about demos? Is it mandatory to have a demo from both maps?

nice and steady

better map pool this time for sure, just get rid of bootleg, that map is like spamming the "B" flag on domination, kinda like "A" site was on mission.

Q: Is demo record, (theatre record) mandatory for all players or not?
same bull**** as always in eu section. No clearly defined rules... what about demos, modelscreens ?
go! :)
Look the stats! http://www.pcworldoc.com/forum/showthread.php/3878-Statistiche-armi-MW3
ACR 6.1 is the most overpowered weapon in the game!! Remove it!! Please!!
the esl should take a look at the clanbase rules longrange only = ak, m4, 2smgs only = mp5, ump
1 scope = L118A cuz the msr is much better;) , only 1 shotgun and this should be the spas
lol @ cb rules.

If you read the rules you would know.
the rules they made are just like black ops/cod 4 .. so stop whining and play after the rules that is set. because it will be those rules in promod IIIIIIFFFFFFFF they even release modtools -_-

Nice rule with 2 smg's
cb rules are not that good, acr is the only good weapon if you dont play with mp5 .
cb have updated their rules recently, now u can use your own custom class too as long as it contains allowed weaponry. i like their rules a lot. they seem competitive and fair now.
Please remove 2 SMG limit.

Stop imposing your gameplay to all teams! We want to keep the choice !


(3 SMG + 1 ARC + 1 Sniper is the best composition)

removing mission for an even more unbalanced bootleg is a bit "meh"
Still no silencer...
