He's big. Tanky. Has the most cc of any champ in the league. And can swim in midair. So why don't I see him played more often?

He got nerfed a lot, so people think he's Amumu 0.5

Because sometimes that anchor just weighs him down.

But he does a pretty good job for support. I mean, you have an aa snare every 12 seconds on every enemy in the field. His ult can knockup teams and has a Q/E combo for those pesky people who get away.

Because he has weak innate tankiness without itemization and is weak to counterjungling, so if your team doesnt protect you and/or feeds in lane, you are screwed. Fed AD carry will outscale your itemization too hard to be dealt with.

EDIT- I forgot to say too that because of the cd on his shield and insanely low base ms, he is a little slow at clearing the jungle. So you HAVE to rely on getting good ganks to keep up with your enemies in farm, farming jungle hard isnt a viable option. (not that Naut ganks are hard to pull off)
