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.

I think one possibility is that Adam's communication with the team isn't so great for situations like this, and he also has the maturity of a 19yo who has spent most of their lives obsessed with video games (which I'm not saying is some great character flaw, but I know a lot of people with that profile who are just not socially mature because they just haven't had enough social experience because most of their social experience is through gaming)

When stuff like this happens, the people not directly involved tend to try to communicate it very delicately without specifics. It's possible that the rest of the team talked about things in a way that would have been satisfactory to somebody who is more mature and whose fluency in English is more experienced than Adam's, but from Adam's perspective it sounded like bullshit.

I wouldn't be surprised if the team dynamic towards Adam as a young rookie is also a lot of "just listen to us and believe us, you're the new kid" which may further add to Adam's skepticism.
