"Remember that scene in Game of Thrones where Tyrion chose a trial by battle in the Eyrie?" Persson writes. "Well, let’s do that instead! I challenge Bethesda to a game of Quake 3 [Arena]. 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.""
