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.

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.

After being fan-voted in, Cabochard and Gambit Gaming took their place at IEM Cologne, managing to win the tournament after beating North America's Counter Logic Gaming in the final 3-1 with a fine show by the French top laner, who was praised by fans who had the chance to watch him in action for the first time.

Moving on to the domestic season, Gambit Gaming had a successful 2015 Spring Split, finishing 4th in the regular season, partially thanks to Cabochard's impressive performances on  Kennen and  Morgana in particular.

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.
