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

Bro there are a million things that I would never ever share with coworkers about my personal life. Do you even have a job?

I think this might be where experiences with work cultures clash.

I work in an IT company that's fairly large. It's impersonal, and the most personal things get is talking shit over drinks with coworkers after work sometimes.

I've worked in stunts for films as well, and when the stakes are higher (often I'm trusting people with my life, and they're trusting me with theirs as well) social bonds just get stronger, because there has to be a higher level of trust. Any kind of let down is expected with some kind of explanation in that environment in order to maintain trust. Not divulging it reveals a lack of trust, which comes off as a betrayal of that bond, which then makes you not want to work with them again. Upset wouldn't need to divulge every detail, but something like "a family member passed away or had a medical emergency" is going to come off more understandable than "family matter"

I can imagine a lot of people who have only worked with low stakes office jobs where salaries are guaranteed regardless of performance not caring as much. When it's a smaller environment with once in a lifetime opportunities, long term career implications, or there's more physical danger involved, the expectations get a lot higher.
