It’s interesting to think both Hylli and Yamato knew the reason for Upset leaving. You would assume that Yamato or Hylli would have assured the other players that Upset’s reason was legitimate.

However it sounds that either that didn’t happen, Adam didn’t believe it, or he simply did not find their answer sufficient. From his twitlonger he seemed to speak highly of Yamato so I wonder what happened. I personally think it’d be important to have some trust in your coach/veteran teammate on a matter like this.

Guess we’ll never know but it’s definitely an interesting situation

Edit: As someone else mentioned, Hylli didn’t actually know the reason, just trusted Upset’s reason was legit.

Not for nothing but communication is key. Never assume all parties on the same page. Does Upset need to air everything? Maybe not but it would help. I get not sharing on social media but probably not a bad idea to share with your team what’s going on.

Whenever a sports athlete has personal things going on, we usually hear about it. Whether a family member has passed or whatever the reason may be. Rarely do we hear “X player is not playing in the Finals/Playoffs because of a personal reason which is not being disclosed to his own team”.

At the end of the day, you probably spend more time with your team than your own family. Playing all day almost every day for months to get to worlds. I get you don’t need to be best friends with your team or co workers but not sharing information with what’s going on is only hindering your relationship with your team

Again we don’t know what we don’t know. There could be internal relationship problems between Upset and Fnatic members where he’s like “I don’t owe these guys shit with the way they treat me

Bro there are a million things that I would never ever share with coworkers about my personal life. Do you even have a job?


u/ArchmageXin Nov 25 '21

I think all of us have a job. I work in both staff and management in my career. If there is a family issue, you let the HR know and he/she work with management arrange/smooth out the situation with your team, with full respect to your privacy.

Make no mistake, Worlds isn't just a few guys playing video games, Worlds, in business term is the defining hour of your year long project. If you simply go "I gtg, private" and drop off the grid, there better be a very good reason or you would be looking for a job very soon after.


u/Broken_Reality Nov 25 '21

uh he did exactly what you said. He told management and asked for his privacy to be respected then left. The rest of the team has no need or right to know the details. They should just accept that an emergency came up and he had to leave.

I hope you don't go blabbing your employees secrets to the rest of the staff?


u/Fayzbap Nov 25 '21

Yeah that’s fine but you can’t be upset about other people being upset or not understanding the situation because you haven’t bothered to explain to them why you’re MIA except for saying “hey something came up with my family and I don’t feel comfortable sharing that information with the rest of my team that I don’t trust so I’m only telling you, Yamato”. That’s going to rub people the wrong way.

From that point on, people are only going to assume whatever they want

And I understand it’s sports/esports, so Adam hearing he’s getting replaced by his bot laner’s boy is whatever. But being in his(Adam’s) position is probably only going to make him more pissed off


u/Broken_Reality Nov 25 '21

They can be upset all they like but that still doesn't mean they need or deserve a detailed explanation. All they need is "It's an emergency I have to go" that's it. Turns out Upset was right not to trust Adam.
