Esportal Open Qualifier #3 came to a head in the best of five grand finals between 4clover and Lepricon and 4anchors and Sea Captain. 4clover and Lepricon cinched the finals with a 3:1 victory, claiming their first achievement and joining Hellraisers, Team Empire, MyInsanity, Virtus.Pro and Ninjas in Pyjamas at the main event.
4clover and Lepricon
The team receives $2,000 for their first place win and the LAN spot. In late March, after Goblak left Na’Vi, he put together a new team, with some other known teamless professional players. The team quietly signed up for the Esportal Open Qualifiers and played up to the main qualifying event, going virtually unnoticed.
They will face Moscow 5 in their next match, on April 17, in the Yard Festival competition.
