In the most recent post on Notchâ€™s blog, he proposed a way that this issue can be settled, in the most respectful of ways:
I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3. Three of our best warriors against three of your best warriors. We select one level, you 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 youâ€™re fine with.â€ť
At the end of the post, Notch even went as far as to say, â€śI am serious, by the way.â€ť He means business. I am all for the lawsuit being settled in a way that we gamers understand â€“ with bullets and gore. Am I right?

personally i think its nonsense that such a big company would want to file a lawsuit over such petty matter
