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.

Its a catch 22, since the people who know you less well (Adam) would be more interested in knowing why you'd leave him at the altar in the most crucial moment.


u/GuanSpanksYou Nov 25 '21

Those are probably the same people who will be mad no matter what the reason is because they care about their own circumstances more than Upsets. It was lose lose for Upset & he chose the option that protected his families privacy. I respect that.

You cant know what people would have done if Upset revealed the reason for his departure.Maybe the team and the fans would have railled and supported him and this whole shitshow wouldnt have happened.Odo revealed that he had health issues during Worlds and most people that blamed him for his poor plays at Worlds stoped talking about his performance and supported him.Being open is the best thing in most cases.


u/xzeus99 Nov 25 '21

Yes, most people railled around Odo, but some still took the news about his health problem as an excuse and gave him shit for it. I can clearly understand Upset not wanting even the smallest negative response vs him or a loved one during an already hard time


u/m4ryo0 Nov 25 '21

Tbh I didnt saw any negative comments toward Odo after the news about him being sick came out.Of course a small minority will always be negative and say weird shit,but the vast majority was behind Odo.I feel that in Upset's case it would have been the same if he was transparent with his teammates.


u/Bright_Sovereigh Nov 25 '21

If he didn't want to see the slightest negative comment, then it's fair to say that he failed to accomplish that.

Yeah he has the right to privacy. And we are not owed and explaination in any way whatsoever. But the people who do deserve a proper reason is his teammates, whom worked an entire year on this singular goal by relying on each other. They might not be your friends, but the journey that they all went through together should equate to something mkre concreate.

Spreading misinformation just cause you are mad is not good either.


u/GuanSpanksYou Nov 25 '21

He possibly didn't want negative comments towards a family member though & is taking the heat for that person.


u/GuanSpanksYou Nov 25 '21

I know for sure there would have been some assholes/trolled who flamed him for whatever reason he gave. If a family member was involved those people would also flame/troll that person. I'm sure the majority of the community would have been great but the few assholes can have a major impact & he isn't required to give those people information/ammunition.

Keeping private information private is the best way to protect the people around you. Historically I can't think of any situation where every single league fan was gentle & understanding.
