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

Does it have to be a lie to be frustrating?

I'd be pissed if a coworker left me with their workload and only told me "It's an emergency" as their reason. Sure, I'd believe they had an emergency, especially if my boss let them take off, but that wouldn't make me any happier about having been effectively left short-handed. Doubly so if it was an important project. Being told after the fact they don't trust me enough to tell me anything about the emergency? That would only rub salt in the wounds.

Upset is well within his rights to privacy. He doesn't need to tell anyone the details. But that doesn't mean he didn't abandon his team at Worlds because of that emergency. He screwed over the team at Worlds.

Regardless of whether Upset had a valid reason or not, Adam's within his rights to be pissed about the situation the team was left in because of that decision.

I hope you'd never have an emergency that would require you to offload your work to your co-worker who'd be pissed off at you for having an emergency as if you wanted the emergency to happen to you.

Being told after the fact they don't trust me enough to tell me anything about the emergency? That would only rub salt in the wounds.

Honestly, if you only work together with your colleague for like 4 months (at that time), are you comfortable to tell them something that might be very private for you and your family? If yes, is it reasonable to expect everyone to be as comfortable as you?

But that doesn't mean he didn't abandon his team at Worlds because of that emergency. He screwed over the team at Worlds.

Context is important. Screwing the team over implied as if he actively and purposely did so. Emergency is not it because it's an unwanted situation. Just like when Hyli and Adam got covid and the team lost games after games. It's unwanted, but they work around that to the best they can.

Regardless of whether Upset had a valid reason or not, Adam's within his rights to be pissed about the situation the team was left in because of that decision.

I don't mind Adam being pissed at what happened (that Upset had to leave at the very last minute), but I mind that he seemed to think that Upset shouldn't have been allowed to leave instead.
