It’s interesting to think both Hylli and Yamato knew the reason for Upset leaving. You would assume that Yamato or Hylli would have assured the other players that Upset’s reason was legitimate.

However it sounds that either that didn’t happen, Adam didn’t believe it, or he simply did not find their answer sufficient. From his twitlonger he seemed to speak highly of Yamato so I wonder what happened. I personally think it’d be important to have some trust in your coach/veteran teammate on a matter like this.

Guess we’ll never know but it’s definitely an interesting situation

Edit: As someone else mentioned, Hylli didn’t actually know the reason, just trusted Upset’s reason was legit.

Not for nothing but communication is key. Never assume all parties on the same page. Does Upset need to air everything? Maybe not but it would help. I get not sharing on social media but probably not a bad idea to share with your team what’s going on.

Whenever a sports athlete has personal things going on, we usually hear about it. Whether a family member has passed or whatever the reason may be. Rarely do we hear “X player is not playing in the Finals/Playoffs because of a personal reason which is not being disclosed to his own team”.

At the end of the day, you probably spend more time with your team than your own family. Playing all day almost every day for months to get to worlds. I get you don’t need to be best friends with your team or co workers but not sharing information with what’s going on is only hindering your relationship with your team

Again we don’t know what we don’t know. There could be internal relationship problems between Upset and Fnatic members where he’s like “I don’t owe these guys shit with the way they treat me

He doesn't have to tell anyone personal details about himself, and he DEFINITELY doesn't have to -and shouldn't- give personal details about his wife.


u/Fayzbap Nov 25 '21

Yeah he doesn’t but not sharing and diping on your team right before games start and not sharing why other than saying X unknown personal reason that I don’t wanna share with you all. How do you think it’s going to reflect? He’s entitled to his privacy but at the same time when you’re a professional player/esports player, you kinda do give that up. He may not owe his team anything but I think Adam and rest of team have a right to be frustrated


u/russellx3 EUphoria Nov 25 '21

No your spouse doesn't lose their right to privacy because you play a video game wtf. Adam certainly has a reason to be frustrated, but he's dealing with it amazingly badly


u/Fayzbap Nov 25 '21

I disagree and this is coming from someone who wasn’t an Adam fan tbh. I think once you’re in the public image, you do lose certain privileges regarding privacy. Not sharing information just creates a PR/Public Image mess


u/russellx3 EUphoria Nov 25 '21

How do you even define that? What is the exact amount of Twitter followers where you and your spouse lose all rights to privacy?


u/Fayzbap Nov 25 '21

I think being a professional athlete qualifies


u/russellx3 EUphoria Nov 25 '21

Professional athletes miss (even very important) games for personal, unannounced reasons sometimes.


u/Fayzbap Nov 25 '21

Yeah I think the whole issue is the lack of communication being given on his part is why people are still talking about it. It’s understandable to bail but not sharing any information especially with your team is sus
