Fast ground tank with great utility, that works best with short- or midrange weapons. The ultimate ‘Unit-Teleport’ is one of the best initiatiors in the midgame.

While this tank can be bought at start, it should be prefered to transition to it after a cheaper starting tank and some weapon.

One thought on “Goblin Shredder

  1. Hiya.

    I don’t play that much anymore, but whenever I do, I always hope, that would this time be the one, that the ridiciously small damage on shredders Q skill be fixed. I’ve been complaining in my rage to empty walls so many times and finally decided to do whatever I can for this. I mean c’mon. The tank costs 3k and the damage of the nukes is on the same level (if not smaller) than those of 1k-1.5k. I love the shredder and would like to see it thrive as a tank. Ofcourse I understand, that the nukes can’t be too good because of the 3k price. Everyone would pick it right at the start to nuke the hell out of tinkers and scouts and light tanks. Hell I would. And sometimes I do 😀 It’s fun, but so damn very difficult. Mayby a delay on shredder pick, or increse the price just a little bit? Just to throw few ideas. Not trying to complain. Just pointing out a what I think is a bit of a flaw, in a map that I love. I absolutely fucking suck at it, but love it nevertheless. I hope this gets heard. Cheers!
