Aliwi “w33” Omar is the third member of 4 Clovers and Lepricon to depart from the team in just a matter of days. There is no word if the team is going to continue with replacements for w33, Wagamama and VANSKOR. Alaan “SexyBamboe” Faraj and Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist remain for now.

Two days ago, both Niklas “Wagamama” Högström, and Ivan “VANSKOR” Skorokhod announced they were parting ways with the team and were both actively seeking new teams.
w33 appears to also be involved in a new team but has not disclosed any details yet. The Romanian player joined the team in May, along with Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist to replace Vladimir “yol” Basov and Stanislav “Bzz/633″ Glushan.
Aliwi “w33” Omar started his Dota 2 professional career playing with Balkan Bears in 2014. He quickly made a name for himself climbing in the MMR ladder and for his Meepo hero plays. In January 2015 he joined MeePwn’d for two months before returning back to Balkan Bears for another two months. In May he joined 4 Clover & Lepricon.
Shortly after joining his team MeePwn’d, W33 was involved in some controversy when he was caught cheating during a friendly match in the European Elite League. His ban from the league was later revoked.

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 4CL. 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.
4CL did not advance beyond the first day of the TI5 open qualifiers and only a few days later the team faced 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:
Alaan “SexyBamboe” Faraj
Jerry “EGM” Lundkvist
