    From his Blog:

    Hey, Bethesda! Lets settle this!

    I am back, and I am excited.

    Marriage has been wonderful so far, and nobody sabotaged my computer while I was gone.

    The only negative thing going on at this moment is the Scrolls trademark lawsuit nonsense, and I think I came up with the perfect solution:

    Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie? Well, lets do that instead!
    I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. We select one level, your select the other, we randomize the order. 20 minute matches, highest total frag count per team across both levels wins.

    If we win, you drop the lawsuit.

    If you win, we will change the name of Scrolls to something youre 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.
    I hope this really happens.

    That would be really awesome, although unlikely to happen.

    I bet Jeb and Notch are absolute monsters at Q3 or something, they probably have supreme duel skills.

    Sued again for what? If this was to happen it's obvious there would be a contract between them stating that Bethesda would have to drop the lawsuit and not sue over the matter again if Mojang won.

    It's not going to happen, and at the very most it would just be a game against 3 guys from the Skyrim dev team who hate their jobs and pensions

    Also he's not doing a very good job at helping them save face, which this appears to be an attempt at

    Duuuuuuuuuuude. Notch is treating this like he's in a feel-good comedy movie. I wish I could share his outlook.

    Must be his enchanted hat of +6 Happiness.

    Sued for not taking it seriously. American lawyers are pretty uptight and I highly doubt they would accept a video game challenge. This is about money for them, not having fun.

    I'm not sure if you can sue people for not being OMG SUPR SRS all the time. There'd be a lot less Trolls in the world if you could.

    But he has a nice hat, and to me, that makes him a pretty cool guy.

    And we all know there's an infinite amount of things that don't work in Minecraft, right?

    Have you heard of the kinds of sport they had?

    One, for instance, involved tying a man to a stick and watching him fight the strongest Aztec warriors.

    Another was fairly simple, having to hit a ball into a hoop on a wall. However, the loser would be brutally decapitated.

    I guess those Aztec sports aren't too unlike Quake 3. If Notch loses, at least, there'll certainly be someone's heart on his furnace.

    If they don't like it, they won't accept, you can't sue someone for "not taking it seriously"

    No, I think Bethesda would rather drag you to trial and bankrupt you with damages as a lesson to anyone else that might use their trademarked words.

    Bethesda will probably hire some "professional" Quake players to duel for them if they every go through with it.
