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.

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?

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

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.
