Vitality top laner Lucas “Cabochard” Simon-Meslet recently announced that he will be exploring new options for the 2021 season despite still being contracted through November.

The veteran top laner will possibly be looking for new career options after playing on Vitality for almost five years. Cabochard has been with the team since its debut on the biggest European League of Legends stage in the 2016 spring split. Vitality acquired Gambit Gaming’s seed and quickly became a household name in Europe. 

Despite many years as an active player, Cabochard has only made it to Worlds once. He qualified for the 2018 World Championship alongside such players as Daniele “Jiizuke” Mauro and Mateusz “Kikis” Szkudlarek, but failed to get out of the group stage after a loss to Cloud9 despite impressive wins over Gen.G and RNG.

Could Cabochard be leaving Vitality and the LEC?

Cabochard has been the face of Vitality for a long time and also the most consistent player the organization has ever had. Despite a poor year in the LEC, Cabochard has kept himself relevant and could be a valuable asset to other teams. 

It’s hard to predict where Cabochard would go if he were to leave Vitality. He is one of the most experienced top laners in the LEC, but might not have the individual power needed to get a starting spot for one of the top teams. 

The top lane position is filled with great players in the LEC, with rookies looking to debut from some of the regional leagues. It’s always a possibility that Cabochard will look for opportunities in the LCS or even take a step down and look to participate in one of the European regional leagues. 

Vitality won’t play its next match until the 2021 season begins, so there will be plenty of time for Cabochard to consider future options elsewhere.
