Looks Like We’ll Have to Settle this the Hard Way…..

Or rather the fun way. As we are all very aware, Bethesda is being a bit of a bully to Mojang (the creators of Minecraft) because Mojang's new game Scrolls directly violates the trademarked name of Bethesda's Elder Scroll series. Totally stupid and unneeded,  and almost seems like a joke right? Well to Markus "Notch" Persson it is.


He has challenged the chaps at Bethesda to a Quake 3 battle to the death. The contest rules were as follows: each company would pick their best three warriors and one map to be pitted against each other at random in twenty minute matches with the team with the most frags at the end being the winner. If Mojang wins they will be allowed to keep the name "Scrolls" for their soon to be released  game title,  and if Bethesda wins, they will be allowed to give permission to any of the new proposed names that Mojangwould have to think of. 


I personally think that this would be a fantastic way to settle this silly little feud that is going on. It will come down to who is more skilled at something in comparison to who has the biggest team of parasitic lawyers. Not to mention that, but it would also allow them to avoid all of the silly little court fees that will rack up over the course of the litigation process. Additionally it will show if Bethesda actually has the brawn to back up their useless lawsuit, or prove that they are just a bunch of girly men cowering behind their lawyer shields. 


Of course Bethesda has yet to respond to this, and will likely just save it for the court so to say. 


Hopefully it will happen though, and that their will be live coverage of it. I would definately watch it.
