As the time of posting, the Snipers Only playlist / No Snipers playlist was in the lead with 39% of the vote. In second place, the MLG Rules playlist had 32% of the vote. If things remain the same, it looks as if two new playlists will be introduced to MW3. One will only allow sniper rifles. The other will not allow snipers.
If MLG manages to win, there will be a public playlist that will force players to abide by competitive rules (no killstreaks, respawn delays, OP weapons banned, Claymores banned etc).
