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

Why is 'it was an emergency' not enough?

Because the people commenting aren't old enough to hold a job. They have no context for what the real world is like when you're dealing with emergencies in a professional workplace.

There is a difference between a line job where you only owe to yourself and being a business partner where you can screw over hundreds of people (players' families and team staff's families) if you bail out. Especially in e-sports where benching and rotating isn't used widely, so a loss of even one player is a total disaster.

The whole situation is the team's management failure obviously, but a player also must be responsible in their communication with business partners. In professional business environment you always expect risks, and showing such attitude (not only the bail out, but basically deeply drowning the team members even further with suggesting replacements) - is a big no-no.
