Notch, the creator of Minecraft and owner of indie game company Mojang, is currently being sued by Bethesda. The lawsuit is directed at Mojang's new game, Scrolls, which Bethesda claims will confuse fans of their ever so popular series, The Elder Scrolls. Many feel that Bethesda has probably struck up these ridiculous lawsuits against other companies in the past, but those other companies were most likely big developers who had the money to just pay off Bethesda and drop the whole thing without it going public. Mojang is an indie developer, and even with their huge hit of a game Minecraft, which recently sold its three millionth copy, they are still not at the point where they can just throw money around. Because of this, Notch took the case public before Bethesda did, giving him the benefit of the doubt and, in turn, giving Bethesda quite a few more "fans". Today, Notch wrote up a new post to his Tumblr, which calls out Bethesda and tells them that this needs to end with a battle to the death.

"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."
