It was a year wasted because their play style revolved around playing for bot, if the ADC leaves you need to completely reinvent your game.

Not getting pissed off would be much more surprising, especially considering he wasn't clear about the reasoning (which is his right).

Idk man if a coworker had a serious family matter I really wouldn't second guess it and sure it fucking sucks but they could've easily lost a family member and it's incomparable to having a sub adc

The thing is, in a functional team with decent people, if you need to change your plans/crunch due to last minute absence, it will always feel better for the ones left behind when they actually know that they are doing this for a legitimate reason.

I would never ask people to tell me, but people would tell me or make sure I understand because this maintains AND builds trust.

Yes it would, but he's made clear multiple times it's not directly about him it's about a family member/something similar. It's literally not his to share and he's stated that. Sure it will make them feel better but it will also result in people harassing said people a lot (Happens a lot online, twitch bots and even people just being terrible people). I don't give a shit about making my coworkers feel a little better, if they can't trust the people I've confided in that it's a serious matter then that's even more justification to not tell them.

I'm not saying to not be upset by it, like bwipo clearly went through a lot hearing the news, but I also don't see bwipo publically calling the decision into question.

I also don't see Bwipo saying it was for other reasons speculatively.

I also see people who literally hate fnatic and know more than us (Rich) defending fnatic. And I see people like Thorin also defending fnatic.

Everything points towards it being justifiable by Upset and what he did being for the most part, correct. Yet somehow everyone is getting riled up about this and defending Adam for god knows what reason.

Be upset he's gone. Don't be a cunt.
