I remember he used to be played a lot, but I haven't seen him at all recently. Did he get a big nerf or something?

Still strong at the competitive level, but they kept nerfing his ult CD so that in solo queue where ganking is easier there are stronger junglers. However, every 2 minutes Nocturne gets a kill, so he is still good.

The nerf to his ult's CD means he cannot gank "as often" as other Junglers. Usually as Nocturne you don't gank much pre-6 since he has no hard CC other than his fear (which he has to be in melee range for). Maokai, Skarner, Lee Sin, Shyvana, and other tanky junglers have either better movespeed + damage than him, or straight up better CC/Utility than him.

The only teams that ran him at world was iG and WE, both of which lost. I think Nocturne is strong, it is just with the current mobility meta CC-oriented junglers like Maokai/Skarner/Amumu and bruiser mobility junglers like Lee Sin/Shyvana are just downright better in most situations.
