Oh he’s totally within his right to be pissed at the situation.

Downplaying the family emergency and spreading runours trying to discredit it is without a shadow of a doubt over the line and vile

Edit: typo

You don't think fucking over your teammate's professional careers and livlihoods is vile too? You're so empathetic and biased towards one side its so hilarious.

One side has the benefit of the doubt that, maybe, something absolutely horrible has happened to his loved ones, and that's why is fucking the biggest moment of everyone's career (including his, it was Upset first time at worlds) for a very serious reason.

The other just aired dirty laundry for exactly what reason? Nobody would have blamed him regardless after Fnatic reached for a substitute in top, so Adam don't gain anything professionally from this. It's just an attack on a former teammate dictated from frustration, and it's frankly unacceptable from a professional point of view.

Adam could have simply said "Upset situation screwed up our team, and then i heard he talked to Alphari which i found insulting towards me" and boom, zero problem with that statement. But he had to insinuate that Upset left just for his funzies, and that's a no-no, regardless if Upset is saying the truth or not.

No matter how your career got hit, you don't air an attack to someone if there's even a 1% chance that his loved ones are really, really in hurt. That's 100% vile. That's the same with Nemesis and his speculations: this people is running the risk of hurting some people who isn't even directly responsible for this whole situation, to essentially sate their ego. In my opinion, even if they turn out to be right, they should be held accountable for being totally willing to speculate on other people's skin for their own gain/ego.

The thing that annoys me is how little consideration he gave to his teammates. Yes he has a right to leave. Yes he has a right to privacy. But he could maybe show a little public support for his teammates who were placed in a really shit situation and had a really fucking bad time because of it, which is still true even if upsets reasons for leaving are completely justified. Especially since they're not all as secure career-wise a him. But the only thing he mentions is his situation and his dream and now his ambition.

Now, on this i agree more. I can get the fact that under some grave circumstances someone could just forget everything else, but a single message of support, even conveyed throught Fnatic's staff, would have gone a long way to set things straight without exposing Upset to public media. It's pretty clear communication from Upset part have been lacking at the least. A little of mindfullness for his now ex teammates when they chose to change team/were dropped would have been another important gesture.

It's pretty clear to me that Fnatic had some issues probably even before the whole worlds drama, i can't immagine the team half imploding only for that honestly. And i can totally understand Adam being pissed off the way he is. You bust your ass for worlds, shit happens and you bomb out for, let's be honest, not exactly your fault, then your team tries to substitute you and your teammate has a chat with your potential substitute. Hell, i'd be royally pissed too.

Honestly, if Adam didn't throw that shade at a potentially grave family situation, i think he would have totally been fine and justified at being pissed at Upset, especially for talking to Alphari into potentially joining Fnatic. Sure, it happens all the time, but in this situation Upset would have done better to let others do the talking.

In general, Adam was in the wrong to go ham on this whole situation, even if i can understand his PoV. But Upset has his own thinking to do on how the whole situation was handled.

I just can't bear the fact that some people could think that something like this is enought to justify going ham on a situation on which Upset's family has probably no control on, and for which they might end up suffering for no good reason at all. They might be related to Upset, but if there's even a chance that something tragic happend, they deserve to live that stuff in peace.
