We study W boson scattering in the same- and opposite-sign channels under the assumption that no resonances are present in the collider processes pp→l±νll±νljj and pp→l±νllνljj, respectively. Basic selection cuts together with a restriction on the combination of the final lepton and jet momenta (the Warsaw cut) make it possible to argue that at the LHC a luminosity of 100 fb-1 and a center-of-mass energy of s=13 TeV will allow us to constrain the leading effective Lagrangian coefficients at the permil level. We also discuss limits on the other coefficients of the effective Lagrangian as well as stronger constraints provided by higher energy and luminosity.
