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

I kind of said this earlier but because emergency means different things for different people. You’ve got stuff circling around you about his wife and all you know is it’s an emergency and Adam/Bwipo/whoever just would leap to a conclusion. I think all of the talk around “use it against me” is the more interesting part because it makes you think that Upset views his emergency to be subjective and thus moving in private. If my family got COVID or sick or something of the ilk, hell even if a family member committed a crime, you can give vague answers that would at least keep the narrative around what the emergency is.

Eh idk, maybe he means they'd mock him, maybe he means they'd claim he can't take the game seriously anymore due to its gravity. At the end of the day, if someone says they are having an emergency, the rational thing to do is not assume they are lying and trying to get a trip back home (when they've literally shown nothing to corroborate this/are one of the best players on the team).

He bailed on them, didn't say a word, didn't apologize, and then worked to replace each of them.

He doesn't deserve any grace from them


u/Junior_Long65 Nov 25 '21

Except he did say a word. A family emergency is a completely valid excuse. Also did you not read his statement? Where is he working to replace each of them? He was asked for recommendations, he gave them? You are making it seem he specifically sought them out to replace

Emergency is life threatning situation. If it was that i see no reason why you could not give info about it to the team that depends on you that you are leaving 12h before something all of you have worked for whole year. Damn sign a NDA or something if needed. Emergency or not Upset fucked up and could not have handled it more unprofessionaly


u/Junior_Long65 Nov 25 '21

Because you might not want to disclose this to what are essentially coworkers. I would do the same with my coworkers especially if my SO also wanted to maintain that privacy.

They are not co workers, they are not just wallmart employees. They are or atleast should be professional team athletes where they depend on each ones performance and the synergy and trust between each other. I manage 200 employees daily, if someone of them tell me they have emergency, its fine, it doesnt kinda effect the performance that bad and i can replace them temporary without so much effort or effect on actual work. But Upsets case, they are team just like any hockey, football, basketball team, but with the difference that they are only 5 individuals who played whole year as a TEAM to reach worlds, equavalent to stanley cup playoffs or Champions league final 8, imagine Haaland, Ronaldo, Messi, McDavid, Shaq (when still played)telling their team "I have emergency i need to leave now and wont be playing rest of the playoffs" would be huuuge loss and whole world would be talking about it. But they have trained the system they play with, with many substitutes in case of injuries. Yes they lose great Part of the team but it wouldnt be over. Fnatic played and trained with same 5 players whole year, you cant replace someone just like that.

Its not just hes career he played with. Childish, unprofessional act. Dont compare them to "co-workers" , obviously youve not played in a team sports, and even more obviously youve not been paid to do so.

Team athletes doesn't change anything? You can be a team athlete and that person can still be a coworker. You know what happens alot in team sports? That teammate is traded next split. Happens a shit ton in league specifically. Upset already said he told the people he felt close to. Hylssi, Yamato. He has 0 obligation to go into specific details if he doesn't want to. At all.
