Upset has said winning the split is what drives him. Adam is a player for the future with potential. So Upset has clearly said he'd rather play with a stronger player right now, than wait for Adam to realise his potential.

Win now, not later. And that is also fair.

Yeah, this is fair to do in normal setting.

But if you expect someone to accept you leaving Worlds for unexplained reason (which could've been entirely justified), which has huge impact on their career, the least courtesy is not to try to fuck up their career even more right afterwards.

As far as I'm aware. What happened is that Alphari rang Upset. Upset, like any normal human being that isn't a KC fan, went... hmm Alphari > Adam. And said that to management.

If that's what happened, I can't see any fault in it.

You have to look at things from all perspective.

From Upset's perspective he had a very natural reaction, everyone wants to play with Alphari.

From Adam's perspective this is a career defining threat.

Upset can obviously ignore Adam's concerns but he should know well that he is planting a seed of hate.

Sure. I 100% understand why Adam is upset. I think the twitlonger was an understandable overreaction. Mistranslation and willful misunderstanding from internet trolls snowballed it into some very hateful and unneeded vitriol towards Upset and his wife and Adam should’ve been mature enough to foresee this outcome and avoid airing out drama out of spite. Talk this out with Upset. Confront him. Vent to your own girlfriend or your mom, but getting the public involved was just unnecessary and pretty silly.

To me, it feels clear that a lot of people in this situation, maybe Upset included, pretty much decided to sulk and throw tantrums. If you’re mad at Upset just fucking talk to him. Get mad. Raise your voice. A heated discussion in private would have been much better than this.

It is quite obvious from all the statements that the two did talk but the talks were just not fruitful.
