Masterath is most known for his FMRW Series and his comedy videos on his main channel and collaboration Channels with Exterdeath8. Masterath is also an avid let's Player with around 300 videos on his LP Channel.
The Beginning (2000-2008)
Growing up in Cirencester, England his whole life. Masterath came up with the idea of making a FMRW Series in the Summer of 2000 while on holiday in Breen, Sommerset. Making up match cards with the toys that were available there. This all started the beginning of his FMRW Career. On 10th December 2000. Masterath made his first FMRW Series (Extreme Robot Wars) and its first episode. Which only had 2 matches involved. The video is up on YouTube and is the oldest depiction of FMRW today.
Extreme Robot Wars lasted until early 2005. Lasting just over 4 years. Masterath left FMRW for 2 years. before coming back with a new concept called Heavyweight Robot wars. These designs were alot larger than the Extreme Robot Wars robots and the series lasted for 2 years, with 2 series coming out of it.
One summer day in 2008, a now 15 year old Masterath went to a car boot sale in Gloucester to find and buy a Robot Wars Minibot Arena. This sparked the FMRW side of him once again and he started creating FMRW Series. After a few tryout matches, Masterath Launched Masteraths Robot Wars in July 2008. However this series was never uploaded onto YouTube and was kept on 2 video tapes. Since 2010 this series has been known as Masteraths Robot Wars - The Video Version.
Masterath joined YouTube on 4th June 2007 and uploaded his first YouTube video 2 months later, a slide show about his favourite football team Crewe Alexandra. This brought along a sequel the year after. During 2007 and 2008, Masterath made some small YouTube video series like 'My Yu-Gi-Oh Cards', 'The Hopper World Championship' and 'Masteraths Name A Robot Competition'.
Rise to Popularity (2008-2009)
Masterath brought the FMRW Series he had made for at the time the last 9 Years to YouTube in February 2009. And even with the at the time poor quality. Masterath's FMRW Series became popular, with 5 series in 1 year. In August 2009, Masterath created his first Extreme Series 'Masteraths Robot Wars Legends'. This series is currently the longest running extreme series ever. Masterath also in 2009 made popular videos like 'Masterath Turns into Utensil-man' which has its own channel now and Masterath VS Exterdeath8 in a few matches on Sega Genesis game Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.
With KingPazza1 and Andre95Productions leaving FMRW. Masterath stepped up to present the FMRW Awards every December. An awards ceremony which awards the best robots, moments and series in FMRW. Masterath has at the moment won 31 awards overall.
The 'Bitch Era' (2009-2010)The Bitch Era, as Masterath calls it. Is the moment where Masterath's whole attitude towards his videos changed. After a great performance in the FMRW Awards 2009, winning 9 Awards. Masterath got arrogant and stated about how good his FMRW Series was and even at time would cancel it or not upload a part if there wasn't any call for it. He in fact quit FMRW. The Bitch Era officially finished in December 2010 when Masterath stated that he has began to like what he does and that he is doing his videos for not only his own enjoyment but for also the people who watch them. Masterath won only 5 FMRW Awards that year.
Return to Popularity (2011-2012)Masterath came back as a new man in 2011. A lot thinner and more humble than the man he used to be. Masterath also stopped using the nickname 'The Voice of FMRW' which he was donned as for a year or so.

Masterath also created a new Series called Evenings with Masterath which showed various activities involving Masterath (Food Tests, Video Game Playing, Random Challenges etc.) Masterath got a new camera in the summer of 2011 which had better light quality.
Masterath began his songwriting in December 2011 when the idea of a 'Radio CAD Song' was brought up by Exterdeath8 for their 3 Year Anniversary show.

Masterath began Let's Playing at the end of 2009 with a few short LPs known for having terrible quality or for bending the rules slightly or not going for the supposed objective (Like of the LP of Sonic Chaos where he spammed for lives in the special stage instead of going for the Chaos Emerald).

Feud with Lendon
In 2012, the feud between Masterath and Lendon began. Masterath and Ohlendon were at one point real life best friends until in April 2012 they were set apart by how they felt about a woman in 2012. Ohlendon would then attempt, and succeed in taking most of Masteraths college friends away from him in a pathetic act of revenge with the main aim to prevent Masterath from finishing college and getting the grades he needed to do the next course
When the physical attempts failed, Ohlendon decided to try and act in another way. Getting his friends to dislike all of Masteraths YouTube videos and make terrible parodies of those videos (Including adding Justin Bieber music to Masterath;s 'Free Running' video, and adding Rick Astley's Never gonna give you up to a random Masterath video and reuploading it on channels called MasterathGotTrolled and TrollingMasterath).
Masterath in the end created the Rath Attack Pack rap song in May 2012 which got notable positive reviews from members of the FMRW Community while really upsetting Ohlendon who finally asked for a truce on the same day the Rath Attack Pack Came out.
The feud was heated up again after Ohlendon started disliking Masteraths videos yet again and vandalizing the FMRW and Let's Play Wikis stating that Masterath was 'openly gay', in a childish attempt to get a reaction, which he did. After 3 straight nights of this, Masterath uploaded a video mocking Ohlendon's YouTube videos by talking through a Mass Effect 3 playthrough (Made by fellow FMRW Series Maker Launch1995) with Masterath commentating impersonating Ohlendon.
Ohlendon closed his YouTube account on September 26th, 2012, After ALoyalJoker, MrPistolOnly and XPLendon, this is now Ohlendon's fourth account that he has closed, In October 2012, Lendon created his fifth and latest channel called xLoyalRoyal, which was closed in late January 2013.And Masterath got the college grades he needed for the next course. The trolling on the wiki continued until October 7th, 2012. When Masterath was made an admin for the FMRW Wiki. Ending any trolling on that wiki for the future. However the attempts of what is now coined 'Team Lendon' still persists today with random bulk dislikes on Masterath's videos but to no effect to Masterath himself. Masterath still mentions the members of 'Team Lendon' in his YouTube videos for comedy effect.
