Ryan (born: June 28, 1983YouTuber known for his online multiplayer gaming videos.), better known online as Ohmwrecker / Maskedgamer (or simply Ohmwrecker), is an American
He usually uploads online multiplayer games with other YouTubers and let's play videos, mainly for the PC. He frequently organizes his playlists. Ryan created the Ohmwrecker channel on July 12, 2006. His first gaming video was uploaded on August 21, 2006, and his YouTube career went full-time starting in 2012 when he became a Verified Partner.
As of 2016, Ohm plays multiplayer games such as Dead by Daylight, Rainbow Six: Siege, Garry's Mod, and plenty of others with a wide array of other YouTubers such as VanossGaming, H2ODelirious, Cartoonz, I_AM_WILDCAT, Miniladd, BigJigglyPanda, and many others. Ohmwrecker has also collaborated with SeaNanners, GassyMexican, jacksepticeye, Markiplier, ChilledChaos, and less commonly nowadays PewDiePie.
Family issues caused by his parents splitting up and both getting with people who didn't want to deal with kids caused him to move out while he was a teenager in Chicago, which put him on the street. Though he continued to attend high school for a short while, the stress of being homeless eventually lead to him dropping out. After getting on his feet, Ohmwrecker manged to get into college with a high school equivalency exam; and graduated college in 2013 with high honours and a degree in Business Administration. He has previously stated that he has a rare condition called visual snow which causes television-like static to appear in his vision. He had a pet dog named Buddy who had been around for at least ten years. Buddy passed away on September 2nd, 2018. He adopted a new Jack Russel Terrier later that year named Tiny. It's said he had a sister and two or three brothers, one of the brothers being a Marine.
He has said having brown hair and hazel eyes "that sometimes looks light green or blue," having a height of 5"11' and that he is barely older than TheRPGMinx who was born in 1984. His birthday is on June 28. In 2016, he joked in his birthday stream on Twitch that he would be turning 116 years old. He has said that he has a trimmed beard, and has also said in a Rainbow Six: Siege video that his ancestry is mainly Italian and Polish. He later clarified in a stream that his father is Polish and his mother is Italian, though his grandparents on both sides were the last to speak their respective languages.
His Garry's Mod in-game character a is man dressed in a white bunny costume with a huge head. His head is notorious for giving his, and to some extent his teammates' position away, especially in Hide and Seek mode.
On YouTube, PewDiePie brought much more spotlight to many channels including his, Jacksepticeye's and TheRPGMinx's when they played Assassin's Creed, Garry's Mod, and other similar games in 2013. Ohm was previously close to Jacksepticeye until they grew apart and focused on their own methods of gameplay and as a result of Jack's busier schedule. He then later began to play with a popular "crew" of comedic YouTubers consisting of VanossGaming, H2O Delirious, I AM WILDCAT, Daithi De Nogla, (The Gaming) Terroriser and others, although he still frequently plays with players who are not commonly seen among the crew. Combined, these increased activities with said YouTubers have significantly raised his view counts on his videos, to the point where he uploaded a video to thank his subscribers for getting him over 1 Million subscribers on September 15th, 2016.
In 2020, Ohm played with Mr. Fruit and his Dream Team in Among Us, along with Bryce McQuaid. He later joins the Fruit SMP in 2021.
PewDiePie Shout Out
On September 20, 2013, PewDiePie made a Shout Out video featuring OhmWrecker with 8 other YouTubers. OhmWrecker was the first person shouted out before anyone else was. OhmWrecker had 31,000 subscribers at that time and PewDiePie bumped him up to 40,000 subscribers in just a few days. In addition to that video, jacksepticeye was also featured in the Shout Out video as well.
Beef with Bryce Games
It's no secret that during the last couple of months of Bryce still playing with their squad, Bryce and Ohm were not very happy playing with each other.
Following a video of Bryce showing his progress on his abs, on 22nd July 2017, Ohm talked about Bryce's videos on twitter, saying that people should love themselves who they are and what they look like, indirectly accusing Bryce of fat shaming people that couldn't look like him. After this, Bryce was blocked on twitter by Ohm and they stopped playing. They resumed playing together in the Summer of 2020.
On 24th May 2021, after his own dispute with Ohmwrecker, Delirious revealed on twitter why he and Cartoonz stopped playing with Bryce following Ohm's argument with Bryce, saying; "The reason Bryce stopped playing with us [is] because ohm got jealous of him and said he only liked me for my views and that Bryce wasn’t a friend then kicked Bryce out."
Beef with CaRtOoNz
Ohmwrecker tweeted out that a poll about spacing videos out or releasing a bunch of videos at once, due to his dog being put down. CaRtOoNz joking replayed with "What a wonderfully unique idea!", as he released a bunch of videos in one day. Ohmwrecker responded to CaRtOoNz with, "You've got time to be sassy but not once have you checked in to see how I'm doing despite being one of the first people I told, cool buddy. Hey keep thinking you invented the single player upload on YT". CaRtOoNz hasn't responded to this tweet.
Beef with Terroriser
On July 1, 2020, Ohmwrecker claimed on Twitter that Terroriser knew about Mini Ladd sending inappropriate messages to minors. The tweet said "These guys will come at me like this on my birthday, even Terroriser sitting there talking shit about the pope for not addressing abuses in the church, but they won't say a word about Lui or Mini's accusation. Nope. Still have them admin'd on Discord and everything."
Terroriser responded to the tweet on a live stream, saying that he had no knowledge on the things that were happening with Mini Ladd. Ohm then responded to Brian on Twitter saying, "This does not make any claim about Brian know. This addressed his stream just days prior, and how he had nothing to say about the group allegations against Mini and Lui. Again, he made it up, or is misremembering or spinning this tweet in a way that is clearly dishonest." Brian has not responded to this tweet as of now.
Feud with H2ODelirious
H20Delirious and Ohmwrecker used to be friends but over the years that friendship deteriorated due to the toxic behavior by Delirious. Ohm admitted in a tweet, "Delirious has also been incredibly toxic for years, throwing his weight around, demanding things go his way, and getting salty when they don't..." In screenshots and clips presented by Ohm, it shows Delirious calling him a "sick dying f**k" and "Stupid B***h," as well as Delirious using homophobic slurs during recordings. A lot of this behavior made recordings incredibly uncomfortable and led to awkward editing. Over time their relationship became more tense as Ohm pushed back on Delirious trying to dictate Ohm's video release schedule.
Then in March 2021, Ohm blocked Delirious on Twitter and cut off all contact and deals with him after learning that in 2013 Delirious had been in a situation where he was involved in the sharing of child porn. In that time Ohm did research into the allegation and even conversed with a victim who had first hand knowledge of the incident as well as their own experiences with Delirious.
On May 23 2021, Ohmwrecker was a guest on DramaAlert, when he alleged that Vanoss Crew members used to share pictures of underage girls with each other. This information was received via an audio recording of Lui Calibre admitting to the sharing of pictures of girls in private discords and skype.
As the video progressed, Ohmwrecker spoke about H2ODelirious being set up by his friends in 2013. This event led to some of his audio getting leaked. Ohmwrecker further alleged that the girl who H2O Delirious was talking to was a minor and the group members knew it too.
Following the video, several people questioned the factuality of Ohmwrecker’s information. Ohmwrecker went on to Twitter and claimed that he had screenshots to prove this and that Keemstar had left stuff out of the video from their interview. He presented some screenshots as well as a detailed account of his findings on Twitter. Minutes after this, H20 Delirious also broke his silence on the same and slammed Ohmwrecker. Delirious proceeded to bully and harass Ohm on Twitter and even go so far as to invade Ohm's privacy by Doxing him. All of the hatred was turned to Ohm and distracted from the allegations against Delirious and the victims.
H20 Delirious addressed the allegations about him talking to an underage girl. He wrote: “I do want to address one thing that has been said that has been completely misrepresented. It’s something I have for many years been embarrassed about. And destroyed my trust for years. I never wanted to have to talk about this. I still don’t but it’s being forced on me. 9 years ago 2 people thought it would be funny to do something really messed up as a form of hazing me. It’s no secret I was easily excited and very crude when I was in my early 20’s. Someone I had played with a few times prior on Xbox messaged me saying they were only wearing a towel. This caught my attention and interest". Delirious added he wasn’t sure if the girl was underage and added that he didn’t know her personally. It is suspected her age was in her username and, in tweets that have since been deleted, the Vanoss Crew bragged about her being underaged on social media. According to Socialblade, Delirious and the other creators involved deleted thousands of tweets (In Delirious's case 4,412 tweets) between March and April 2021.
In July 2021, Ohm published two unmonetized interviews with two girls who claim to be victims of Delirious. In the interviews Delirious's true nature was revealed. In the first interview, the victim, who goes by the pseudonym Si, talked about her relationship with Delirious and his behavior in this ongoing drama. Si revealed that before she went to Ohmwrecker to share her story, she emailed Delirious asking for an apology for the things he did to her as a minor. Delirious did not apologize instead he spoofed her email, changed one number and sent a near replica of Si's email to Ohm and a few others to discredit her account to Ohm. Ohm almost fell for it but Si presented evidence of her identity and messages that she shared with Delirious proving who she was. After this interview Delirious attempted to discredit her by claiming she was mentally unstable and that she was a part of a Doxer/Hacker group that had been arrested. A former member of the group and a friend of Si's came out on social media in support of Si and refuted Delirious's claims stating that she was never a part of the hacker group.
The second interview focused on a victim who goes by the name "Sarah." In Sarah's interview she talked more in depth about her relationship with Delirious and a recent situation in which Sarah's child had been threatened of being kidnapped by an account that is heavily suspected of being Delirious. Delirious did not comment on this interview.
