4 Clovers & Lepricon have confirmed their third roster change in less than two months since the team’s formation. Vladimir “yol” Basov and Stanislav “Bzz/633” Glushan have been replaced by Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist and former Balkan Bears Corleone player Omar “w33” Aliwi.
4 Clovers & Lepricon have been seen playing with the new lineup yesterday. Niklas “Wagamama” Högström confirmed the roster changes on Reddit, earlier today:
Yes, we are having roster changes. We formed the team very late just for the TI5 qualifiers. Now SexyBamboe, Vanskor and myself are currently playing with w33 and EGM.
The new lineup made a great debut tonight, winning the GIGABYTE Challenge #15 finals, after taking down Team Alternate, 2:0.
DotaBlast talked to Omar “w33” Aliwi about the role he is going to take upon himself on the team:
I have switched to carry, Wagamama will play mid, and EGM is going to play offlane. So far so good, we have just won GIGABYTE Challenge #15.
In all likelihood, the roster changes were caused by the team’s disappointing performance in the TI5 Open Qualifiers, where they were only able to advance until Round of 128, before they were defeated by a team called HLB.
Saaadfaces now! We got knocked out, bo1 is harsh! Our run ended against Drow Dusa Beast Venge Phoenix, GG wp!

Former TI3 champion Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist – now part of 4C&L, has also tried his luck in the TI5 Open Qualifiers, together with Niqua, smulgullig, Blitz, and Pablo. His team made it to the quarterfinals, where they were knocked out by Scaryfacezzz.
4 Clovers & Lepricon
In late March, after Goblak left Na’Vi, he put together a new team with some other known teamless professional players. 4 Clovers & Lepricon made a strong and impressive debut, claiming the Esportal Open Qualifier #3 LAN spot, after defeating 4 Anchors and Sea Captain, on April 15. However, following that performance, the team was defeated by m5, on April 19, in the first round of the Yard Festival and by YES on April 28th in the first round of the DreamLeague Qualifiers #4.
Less than one month after forming 4 Clovers & Lepricon, captain and founder Artur “Goblak” Kostenko parted ways with the team. There has been no statement about the reasons surrounding his short lived affiliation with the team. Ivan “Vanskor” Skorokhod stepped in to take the support role, although still being listed as a reserve/inactive player for Natus Vincere.
Only three days after Goblak’s departure, Kai “H4nn1″ Hanbückers announced his retirement from the competitive scene. Swedish player Niklas “Wagamama” Högström would take his place on 4 Clovers & Lepricon.
The team faces its third roster change in less than two months, with the addition of Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist and Omar “w33” Aliwi.
4 Clovers & Lepricon current roster:
Niklas “Wagamama” Högström
Alaan “SexyBamboe” Faraj
Ivan “VANSKOR” Skorokhod
Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist
