[tumblr] Notch challenges Bethesda to a game of Quake 3

post #1 of 105
Thread Starter 
Quote:
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 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.

I doubt the lawyers/sharks will go for it, lol.

This should happen more often between rivaling companies.

Proof in point of why I love Mojang and Notch. Willing to forgo all the bureaucratic nonsense behave in an innovative and progressive manner!

I'll lose a ton of respect for Bethesda if they don't do it.

Sounds like a great idea.

If I were the judge on this lawsuit, I would make this my ruling on the matter.

You know its probably in bethesdas best interest to accept. Win or lose, it would grant them a lot of favor. People will think they were a cool company for accepting such a challenge.
