It's the same reason people don't play certain mids, tops, support, and ad carry's, there are just better junglers than Nocturne. He is fun though. In my opinion I think his ult could use some more range.

I think one of the things that has hit Nocturne hard is the mobility creep. Nocturne has to walk up to somebody every time, with a possible speed boost if he happened to hit dusk. His AA range is very clumsy and should be looked at. Dusk also doesn't last long enough. It's great that he gets a BF Sword while on it. It sucks he is only just reaching his opponent when it times out.

Noc is a victim of the nerf v. balance fight.

Unfortunately, in an attempt to "balance" him, they've just made him sub-par compared to other junglers. His ULT is great for ganks, but ultimately he can't get it off enough to tangle with the likes of Nunu's Ice Bolt, etc.

He's fine...but he really doesn't have the plus side to balance him with the others. However, I think he is better than most people would say right now just not "optimal". But in all reality any public game player is going to be about as good with him as most of the other junglers.

He got "balanced" to the point that he isn't the "optimal" pick of pro players in big time matches. That just hurts his press even more, so he's picked even less.

Still fun to play though, and enough people are unfamiliar with him that you can absolutely regulate people with him on a good snowball.

It's really sad, because Nocturne was the first champ I ever bought, but now I can't bring myself to play him anymore. Compared to my other junglers he feels so lackadaisical and I have no confidence in team fights.
