The brilliant creator of Minecraft is taking up arms (in a playful way) with Bethesda regarding Mojang’s newest title, which they are aiming to call “Scrolls.” As many of you may know, Bethesda contacted the development company and basically said that they are not allowed to call their new title Scrolls due to trademark infringement. Needless to say, Mojang was upset about this, and it shows.

In the most recent post on Notch’s blog, he proposed a way that this issue can be settled, in the most respectful of ways:

    “Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie? Well, let’s 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, 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 you’re fine with.”

At the end of the post, Notch even went as far as to say, “I am serious, by the way.” He means business. I am all for the lawsuit being settled in a way that we gamers understand – with bullets and gore. Am I right?
