    Notch has struck upon a potential solution. A Quake 3 match. He suggests three from Mojang take on three from Bethesda, pick a map each, and compete for the name.

    “Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie?” asks Persson. “Well, let’s do that instead!”

    He suggests two 20 minute matches, with the highest total frag count per team across both levels winning. The terms of the challenge he sets are,

    “If we win, you drop the lawsuit. If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something you’re fine with. Regardless of the outcome, we could still have a small text somewhere saying our game is not related to your game series in any way, if you wish.I am serious, by the way.” Unfortunately Bethesda and their army of lawyers have so far proven to be a touch humorless about such things. While it would clearly be the greatest thing to have happened in PC gaming history, I suspect they won’t be nearly honorable enough to take on the challenge.

    Come on Bethesda, don't be cocks about it. Or do you just suck at Quake?
