Kai “H4nn1” Hanbückers has decided to retire from the competitive scene, leaving a prolific 7-year-old career behind. Swedish player Niklas “Wagamama” Högström will take his place on 4 Clovers & Lepricon.
The news that H4nn1 retires and will be replaced by Wagamama on 4C&L was broken by Ivan “VANSKOR” Skorokhod, on his Twitter page:
well, H4nni is out of competetive gaming. @WagaGaming will play for us now. 4C&L now: 633, yol, VANSKOR, Waga, SexyBamboe

Three days ago, less than one month after forming 4 Clovers & Lepricon, captain and founder Artur “Goblak” Kostenko has parted ways with the team. There has been no statement about the reasons surrounding his short lived affiliation with the team and separation.
4 Clovers & Lepricon are scheduled to participate in the Mountain Trail Challenge. Their first match is set to be on May 9th versus Balkan Bears Corleone.
Ivan “Vanskor” Skorokhod has stepped in to take the support role, although he is still listed as a reserve/inactive player for Natus Vincere.

H4nn1 retires from the competitive scene
German player Kai “H4nn1” Hanbückers was one of the few successful Dota veterans still active in the scene. He began his 7-year-old journey in DotA 1, alongside Maelk, MaNia, Loda, and Levent. The squad ended up being signed by MeetYourMakers. However, the team disbanded not long afterwards, due to financial issues. H4nn1 the joined Puppey and KuroKy on team Ks.int, for a brief period of time. After playing Heroes of Newerth for a while, H4nn1 switched to Dota 2. He joined Fnatic and played a big part in all their achievements. After a disappointing run at The International 2014, the team disbanded. In 2015, H4nn1 tried his luck with team MeePwn’d and then joined Goblak, SexyBamboe and ex-Virtus.Pro members yol and Bzz on the newly formed team 4 Clovers & Lepricon.
