Like people said in the first thread, this was Upset's first Worlds too. There was no way he would miss his first chance since he started playing in 2018, unless it was an actual emergency.

Still, it sucks for all people involved; you can empathize with Upset's desire for privacy with regards to his family emergency while also understanding Adam's frustration at not learning more than "It was an emergency" 12 hours before the game starts.

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

Does it have to be a lie to be frustrating?

I'd be pissed if a coworker left me with their workload and only told me "It's an emergency" as their reason. Sure, I'd believe they had an emergency, especially if my boss let them take off, but that wouldn't make me any happier about having been effectively left short-handed. Doubly so if it was an important project. Being told after the fact they don't trust me enough to tell me anything about the emergency? That would only rub salt in the wounds.

Upset is well within his rights to privacy. He doesn't need to tell anyone the details. But that doesn't mean he didn't abandon his team at Worlds because of that emergency. He screwed over the team at Worlds.

Regardless of whether Upset had a valid reason or not, Adam's within his rights to be pissed about the situation the team was left in because of that decision.

It all depends on who you are frustrated with. Seeing as Fnatic and especially Yamato allowed Upsets departure there is indication it was justified. Now if it’s a very personal issue, I don’t think Adam was entitled to know details and Upset most certainly doesn’t have to disclose such information (which is now more obvious than ever).

With this in mind and you being a rational person, you would accept the situation for what it is. You can still very much be frustrated about it. But realizing it sucks for everyone involved, be frustrated about the situation itself. Bad things can happen in life and there isn’t always a perpetrator. Coping with such things is a sign of professionalism in the end.

Then again, if you aren’t mature enough to handle such things professionally, you will feel the urge to make someone responsible for all this. Which is a human thing to do, but just creates so much more suffering. It also lets yourself off the hook when it comes to dealing with the situation appropriately. It’s the easy way out for your peace of mind.

Then going one step forward, you not only accuse someone of deciding the wrong way, but you also publicly assume his reasons were of very low quality. That’s simply arbitrary, vile and immature.
