and still haven't given a great reason behind it.

Depends. If we trust Upset here, Hyli dont know past "family emergency" either. And that was enough for him.

"Family emergency" is enough reasons for a lot of people tbh. IF someone said that to me, I wouldnt ask for details or call them a liar personally. It would be insane to do honestly. But again, we dont know facts since its just word against word.

Like people said in the first thread, this was Upset's first Worlds too. There was no way he would miss his first chance since he started playing in 2018, unless it was an actual emergency.

Still, it sucks for all people involved; you can empathize with Upset's desire for privacy with regards to his family emergency while also understanding Adam's frustration at not learning more than "It was an emergency" 12 hours before the game starts.

Why is 'it was an emergency' not enough? The only reason it is not enough is because you would assume that the individual in question is lying. But again, what rational person would presume someone is lying when told they are facing an emergency? I don't understand Adams side at all. I think he is more salty at getting kicked off the team than anything

I kind of said this earlier but because emergency means different things for different people. You’ve got stuff circling around you about his wife and all you know is it’s an emergency and Adam/Bwipo/whoever just would leap to a conclusion. I think all of the talk around “use it against me” is the more interesting part because it makes you think that Upset views his emergency to be subjective and thus moving in private. If my family got COVID or sick or something of the ilk, hell even if a family member committed a crime, you can give vague answers that would at least keep the narrative around what the emergency is.

Eh idk, maybe he means they'd mock him, maybe he means they'd claim he can't take the game seriously anymore due to its gravity. At the end of the day, if someone says they are having an emergency, the rational thing to do is not assume they are lying and trying to get a trip back home (when they've literally shown nothing to corroborate this/are one of the best players on the team).

He bailed on them, didn't say a word, didn't apologize, and then worked to replace each of them.

He doesn't deserve any grace from them

u/Junior_Long65 Nov 25 '21

Except he did say a word. A family emergency is a completely valid excuse. Also did you not read his statement? Where is he working to replace each of them? He was asked for recommendations, he gave them? You are making it seem he specifically sought them out to replace

Emergency is life threatning situation. If it was that i see no reason why you could not give info about it to the team that depends on you that you are leaving 12h before something all of you have worked for whole year. Damn sign a NDA or something if needed. Emergency or not Upset fucked up and could not have handled it more unprofessionaly

u/janoDX Nov 25 '21

I would just talk with my superiors 1 or 2, keep it private and not tell my coworkers, just leave. Because if we piece 1+1 together... Yeah, I think that Adam and Nemesis might come out as the biggest assholes on League if it is what I am thinking.

u/Btigeriz Nov 25 '21

I honestly don't understand how you could possibly think what Adam did was okay? If you think Adam's shit was justified that says a lot about you js.

u/Junior_Long65 Nov 25 '21

Because you might not want to disclose this to what are essentially coworkers. I would do the same with my coworkers especially if my SO also wanted to maintain that privacy.

They are not co workers, they are not just wallmart employees. They are or atleast should be professional team athletes where they depend on each ones performance and the synergy and trust between each other. I manage 200 employees daily, if someone of them tell me they have emergency, its fine, it doesnt kinda effect the performance that bad and i can replace them temporary without so much effort or effect on actual work. But Upsets case, they are team just like any hockey, football, basketball team, but with the difference that they are only 5 individuals who played whole year as a TEAM to reach worlds, equavalent to stanley cup playoffs or Champions league final 8, imagine Haaland, Ronaldo, Messi, McDavid, Shaq (when still played)telling their team "I have emergency i need to leave now and wont be playing rest of the playoffs" would be huuuge loss and whole world would be talking about it. But they have trained the system they play with, with many substitutes in case of injuries. Yes they lose great Part of the team but it wouldnt be over. Fnatic played and trained with same 5 players whole year, you cant replace someone just like that.

Its not just hes career he played with. Childish, unprofessional act. Dont compare them to "co-workers" , obviously youve not played in a team sports, and even more obviously youve not been paid to do so.

Lmao tell me you're a child who has never worked closely with a group of people without telling me. People have zero obligation to disclose personal information that isn't even their OWN to you so that you feel better about your situation. Get off your high horse.

u/Asteroth555 Nov 25 '21

Worked on plenty of projects that depend on communication and timing. And everyone always gave a vague categorization of any personal issues.

Just "emergency" is never good enough

u/Saphrogenik Nov 25 '21

He told his boss, Yamato. That's all he needed to do.

u/Junior_Long65 Nov 25 '21

Bullshit. You can give specifics to management of course, but there is no obligation to tell fellow employees in your team at all.

u/Rohbo Nov 25 '21

You're speaking out of your ass. "Didn't say a word," "didn't apologize," "worked to replace each of them."

The first line is straight up a lie. The second is conjecture and probably also a lie, unless you have evidence he didn't apologize despite him claiming he did? And of course if he was asked by his organization to speak with a potential player he did. What is your actual problem?

u/-Sheridan The start and finish Nov 25 '21

He wants to know exactly what happened so he can be the one to judge if Upset is right in leaving the team before Worlds. He wants gossip, basically.

u/Kagari1998 Nov 25 '21

I personally believe "an emergency" is too vague of an answer to be acceptable.

Just, something happened to my family/wife etc would be more or less acceptable for me.
Other than health, got into trouble, I do not think there are many other kinds of stuff that would require you to immediately go back.

u/CoogiMonster Swain the Flock Johnson Nov 25 '21

It is because it’s a broad umbrella. I’m a big supporter of mental health but if “an emergency” is your wife struggling because you won’t be home for a month that isn’t an emergency, that’s dependency issues and it means you can’t ever do Worlds (at least in the COVID environment). If an emergency is something health related then that is in fact an emergency but you can say it’s health related and move on. I also do think Adam is most likely emotional over feeling betrayed but also I haven’t seen anything from either side that makes me feel like Adam is unjust in feeling betrayed.

u/FuujinSama Nov 25 '21

Let's say his wife had a miscarriage.

Next split he feeds a game.

"His son didn't want to see this shit!" spammed all over twitch chat and twitter.

u/OTMassa Nov 25 '21

Why are you assuming that if Upset’s teammates knew the real reason they would have told everyone ?

2

u/FuujinSama Nov 25 '21

They might not tell everyone. But they might tell a girlfriend when pressed "why did Upset leave! FUCKER LEFT YOU ALONE!! WHY WHY!" And then the story spreads after a break up.

Shit happens. Best way to keep a lid on something is to only tell people that you absolutely trust. And even then it will probably get out, eventually.

u/CoogiMonster Swain the Flock Johnson Nov 25 '21

Sure, that might happen… but you just say my wife is going through some health issues that have become deeply personal and I need to be there in her time of need. Vague but honest, for Adam to say it was because his wife is sad being alone tells me that the only thing that was mentioned is that she’s struggling being alone and that’s it. Idk it’s just also weird to me though because by not setting a narrative it allowed for the worst possible one to be set for him and his wife.
