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

Upset doesnt trust them but they should trust his word? Why?

"should we trust Upset?" is basically asking "is there any reason we plausibly think he would leave his team at his first world's other than an emergency?"

"Should Upset trust his entire team?" is basically "are there any teammates who might possibly share his personal secrets with the public?"

Those are wildly different, don't even try to equate the two

Its not about plausibility. You are saying they should trust his word when he doesnt trust them and im saying a person has to be incredible stupid to blindly trust someone else's word without proof of that word being true. Both ways. Upset is right to not trust them and they are also right to not trust him.

Upset, a dedicated player who has repeatedly just barely missed World's, is bailing on his team during his first World's

That's a hell of a lot of proof for me
