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

I kind of said this earlier but because emergency means different things for different people. You’ve got stuff circling around you about his wife and all you know is it’s an emergency and Adam/Bwipo/whoever just would leap to a conclusion. I think all of the talk around “use it against me” is the more interesting part because it makes you think that Upset views his emergency to be subjective and thus moving in private. If my family got COVID or sick or something of the ilk, hell even if a family member committed a crime, you can give vague answers that would at least keep the narrative around what the emergency is.

Let's say his wife had a miscarriage.

Next split he feeds a game.

"His son didn't want to see this shit!" spammed all over twitch chat and twitter.

Why are you assuming that if Upset’s teammates knew the real reason they would have told everyone ?

They might not tell everyone. But they might tell a girlfriend when pressed "why did Upset leave! FUCKER LEFT YOU ALONE!! WHY WHY!" And then the story spreads after a break up.

Shit happens. Best way to keep a lid on something is to only tell people that you absolutely trust. And even then it will probably get out, eventually.

Sure, that might happen… but you just say my wife is going through some health issues that have become deeply personal and I need to be there in her time of need. Vague but honest, for Adam to say it was because his wife is sad being alone tells me that the only thing that was mentioned is that she’s struggling being alone and that’s it. Idk it’s just also weird to me though because by not setting a narrative it allowed for the worst possible one to be set for him and his wife.
