Goblin shredders are so cool and effective as lumber harvesters. It's a pitty that they are used so rarely. I wonder why sappers aren't used so much either. I have had a lot of fun by sneaking them in orc/human bases and KABOOM 4 workers... dead

What I do (if I can), is fill a Zeppelin with worker units for whatever race I might be, and send it to a far end of the map. This way if I get decimated, I still might have a chance to rebuild quickly. Never had to use them before, but it's nice to have.

if possible i always try to get at least 1 goblin shredder, not really when ud, but any of the other races. As for sappers they usually just dont fit into my strategy:\

Me! Me! I use them because they are useful. Reveal is damn sexy, as well as the shredder. For some reason I always had trouble getting lumber, so now the lab is the second place I clear while creeping and I get a shredder, use reveal, and get a zeppelin to clear an enclosed mine all at the same time.

I always get 1-2 Shredders to replace my Ghouls as fast as possible. You'll get Lumber a lot quicker that way.

I think one is enough. 200 lumber poer round is far enough.

I only use them often on Tranquil Paths (which I hardly ever play), and on that map I'll rush too it as quick as the Zeppelins are available and then fast expand twice on the "island" expansions.
Just like in this game. (Was a final of a 2v2 tourney and my partner got destroyed but 'cos I had two expos real early, I still managed to win the game.) Oh, and btw, if you do actually watch that game, note that I'm actually "Bass" and my partner was "Chib" (we switched comps cos he isn't that good at humans (we went random)) .

Because you can cast farsight from anywhere on the map and it has something like 4x the area.
