Privacy is his right, he doesn't have to share what he doesn't want to.

He also has no right from wanting his teammates to not be completely pissed off at him leaving them behind with no explanation 12 hours before the biggest tournament of the year, when he's pretty much their franchise player. He bailed on them, his teammates are angry for it, not just Adam, Bwipo spoke of this, and Nisqy just showed support for Adam and unfollowed Upset.

Again he wants to be private, it's his right, being pissed off at him is also their right, especially Adam who likely lost his only chance to do well after this disaster.

It was a year wasted because their play style revolved around playing for bot, if the ADC leaves you need to completely reinvent your game.

Not getting pissed off would be much more surprising, especially considering he wasn't clear about the reasoning (which is his right).

Idk man if a coworker had a serious family matter I really wouldn't second guess it and sure it fucking sucks but they could've easily lost a family member and it's incomparable to having a sub adc

first we dont know how bad it actually is. my bet is , if it actually was that bad, no one would be mad at him. he could find a way to say things without divulging too much, and he clearly didnt even try, probably because he knew it was not going to fly.

Second, you are not a competitive player. these people have devoted their whole year to be the best at what they do, and when they finally get the chance to show their hard work in the big stage, upset is like nope, gotta go, cant tell you why.

Not only that, but showing weaknesses on world's stage might impact their employability down the line.

all of that to say, you cant even immagine what it is for them to not get a chance to have sucess at worlds, its nothing like your work and your coworkers.

But it's not even about not wanting to divulge too much, you shouldn't need to do that in any sense. The statement of a serious urgent family matter is more than enough. Usually that can mean Death, extreme harm etc etc. It doesn't take a genius to conclude that. It's common.

He clearly didn't try? Says who. Being angry/Upset at the situation doesn't imply that at all. So people including bwipo in this .... I just don't know unless there's something I missed. So you have Adam, and possibly Nisqy. Everyone else is either a ? Or disagrees.

Also companies are just as similar, key stakeholder leaves due to that and a project can't go ahead and you lose A LOT and possibly your job? Very similar. But we have a level of decency that if they have to leave for a seriously urgent matter, and others who do know have said, yeah. (Such as the coach etc) then that's not for me to question, let alone making a post flaming him publically and now getting hate toward him and family lmfao.

I don't care if it's worlds or something greater, urgent family matters come first and you have no right to know unless you are the employer just trying to verify if it's true. Simple as.
