Lucas "Cabochard " Simon-Meslet is a French player who is currently the top laner for Team Vitality.
Cabochard's first notable tournament was at Paris Games Week 2013, where he competed with Escape the Ninja Pandas. The team ended up finishing in 3rd place at the tournament. Soon after this, Cabochard joined Heavy Botlane.
After a short spell on Heavy Botlane, Cabochard joined COREPLAY towards the start of the season. During his time on the roster, the team managed to make it to the semifinals at the International Invitational Tournament 3, losing only to Cloud 9 Eclipse. After the tournament, the roster disbanded and Cabochard moved on to join GSI Gaming.
After only a month on the team, Cabochard left and rejoined Heavy Botlane. Another short stint on the team led to him being picked up by Ninjas in Pyjamas. His first tournament with NiP was Summer Series #2. The team ended up coming in 2nd in the tournament, losing to SK Gaming Prime in the final. He also competed with the team in the FACEIT Challenger Invitational 3, where the team came in 1st place.
NiP's performance in the last summer series meant that they had secured their spot in the Summer Playoffs. Cabochard and the team finished 4th, losing to Unicorns of Love in the 3rd place match. The team then played in the FACEIT Gamescom Challenge and finished 2nd, losing to H2k-Gaming in the final. The team also managed a 3rd place finish at 2014 Black Monster Cup Europe Fall.
Gambit Gaming had a successful Spring Split, finishing 4th in the regular season, partially thanks to Cabochard's impressive performances on Kennen and Morgana in particular. The team's regular season performance meant that they would be playing in the Spring Playoffs. They were beaten 3-1 by Unicorns Of Love in the playoff quarterfinals.
Due to their 1st place finish at IEM Cologne, the team were invited to compete at the IEM Season IX - World Championship. After a Round 1 loss against the CJ Entus, Cabochard and Gambit Gaming were knocked out of the tournament, losing to Team WE in Round 1 of the losers bracket.
Cabochard and the team had an unsuccessful Summer Split, eventually finishing the regular season in 8th place. This meant that Gambit Gaming would be playing in the 2016 Spring Promotion. Cabochard and the team faced mousesports, winning the series and securing their place in the 2016 Spring Season.
Cabochard joined Vitality for the 2016 season. With himself, Shook, Nukeduck, Hjärnan, and kaSing comprising the roster, the team was considered one of the top lineups in the LCS, and they finished the split in third place, behind the surprise first-place G2 Esports and second-place H2k. In the playoffs, however, they were upset by the sixth-place Fnatic and eliminated in the quarterfinals.
