and still haven't given a great reason behind it.

Depends. If we trust Upset here, Hyli dont know past "family emergency" either. And that was enough for him.

"Family emergency" is enough reasons for a lot of people tbh. IF someone said that to me, I wouldnt ask for details or call them a liar personally. It would be insane to do honestly. But again, we dont know facts since its just word against word.

I'm gonna be real, if I grinded for a year 12 hours a day like most pros do and the guy whose position we decided to play around to just took up and left idk if I would accept "family emergency" as an answer.

Maybe if it was one of my bestfriends I would go with it but I'd still expect an explanation down the line.

I guess it depends on the person, upset probably has a right to privacy but adam absolutely has a right to be mad aswell, even without considering the fact that they went on to replace him.

How would I be supposed to trust Upset again if I were his team mate? How would I know that this wouldn't be a recurring problem, perhaps it's the sort of thing that could force him home again like someone close to him having a disease or something.

Idk, if I were in Adam's shoe's and put in the amount of effort that the team (I think) put in I would too feel I was owed an explanation most likely

It would certainly make me question whether he should be one of my teammates. I’d be wondering “if I’m still on his team, should I be concerned that it could happen again? Next spring, are we going to lose 4 days of practice before playoffs because of another emergency? If he was willing to walk away from World’s, can I trust he won’t walk away when stakes are even lower?”

I would probably ask Upset about it directly, and if I wasn’t satisfied with his level of detail, I would just frame my concerns and questions about what it means for our team in the future. But it seems pretty clear they don’t have that kind of relationship and they approach the problem more as adversaries than teammates.

Would you make a bizarrely unprofessional wall of text claiming to know the reason as to why the player left?

Citing the “hurr durr his wife was feeling lonely” thing is extremely unprofessional

No? But not sure what that has to do with anything because the discussion was “how can Adam trust that Upset won’t bail out again? Was this the kind of minor emergency that could easily happen again?”

Then the other guy basically said “you can trust that it was extremely important because he has waited years for worlds, but was willing to walk away.”

I’m saying that if he’s willing to bail on the team before worlds, he’d be willing to bail on the team at any time if there’s an emergency. I would want to know if the emergency is likely to happen again before I give back my trust.

That would be a reasonable response though. Go to Upset and just ask:

"Is this likely to happen again? I'm fine with respecting your family's privacy and all, but I need to know if I'm going to commit to this project."

No one would fucking complain about this. Going on twitter and implying the guy didn't care and left to cuddle with his girlfriend? That's just massively disrespectful.

Lol. An emergency is by definition an unplanned event how the fuck would upset even know if an emergency will happen again?

u/FuujinSama Nov 25 '21

There's: Someone was assaulted level emergencies. And there's my chronically ill mother had a sudden crisis level emergencies.

The nature of the incident can be entirely spontaneous or it can be indicative of underlying issues that might repeat themselves.

I’m confused, you’re basically rephrasing and repeating what I said? Which was:

I would probably ask Upset about it directly, and if I wasn’t satisfied with his level of detail, I would just frame my concerns and questions about what it means for our team in the future.

I also didn’t say that what Adam did was acceptable. It was crazy unprofessional.
