Joseph "iLoveJoseph" Samano is the jungler for Cloud9.



iLoveJoseph began his official competitive career in Autumn 2015 when he competed on Ardent Alliance with fellow players MICSHE and FlashX. The team competed in Autumn qualiifer 1, where they finished 1st and earned a VIPL ticket to play in VIPL season 2. Joseph was unable to travel to VIPL, so he left the team following the qualfiier.


In the Spring Season, Joseph joined Nemesis Excrucio with Ezadox and Oldskool. In their first tournament together, they finished 5-8th when they lost to Hammers Velocity in the Adagio bracket finals. In Spring Qualifier 2, they dropped affiliation with Nemesis and became just Excrucio and went on to finish 2nd after losing to Hammers Velocity in the finals. Shortly after the finish of qualifier 2, Excrucio was picked up by Team Phoenix and renamed to Phoenix Reign. At the Spring Live Championships, Reign finished 2nd overall, again losing to Hammers Velocity in the finals 3-1.

Following the Spring Season, Joseph left Reign and joined Nemesis Hydra as the starting jungler. The team finished 1st in Evil Eight Split 1, and 5th in split 2, giving them the 5th seed going into the Summer Live Championships.


  • iLoveJoseph created the massively popular trend of creating in-game names starting with "iLove". CullTheMeek helped popularize the trend by creating his well-known smurf account, iLoveIce.
