Nocturne doesn't seem that popular.

I hardly ever see him on streams or in tournaments and I almost never see him unless I jungle myself. Is there a specific reason?

Hecarim exists.

He's just getting overshadowed by the more popular picks such as Vi, Xin, Cho, Amumu, and Hecarim. It's not that he's bad.

I do see him quite a bit on streams, though.

I still see him on streams. He is mostly a counter pick to global gank champs like Shen, Pantheon, or Twisted Fate, since he can ult to try and damage control when they gank. Outside of those specific situations, I think he's considered outclassed.

I don't really jungle that much though, so what do I know. I still think Skarner is one of the best junglers and you don't see much of him nowadays either.

Karma doesn't seem that popular. I hardly ever see her on streams or in tournaments and I almost never see her unless I support myself. Is there a specific reason?


She's really not that viable because her kit is stupid and broken in a bad way. But she's gettin dat rework so hopefully she'll see more playtime soon :D

he's not bad, its just that he has a lot of strong competition. I would imagine he's still picked in higher ELO, when ganking over the infinite bot lane ward setup is really strong

There's a difference between Karma and Nocturne though. Nocturne is the more accepted version of cool, being a crazy nightmare shadow thing and Karma is a lady with fans.

But I suppose that Noct does have some competition with other junglers. I always thought he was one of the better ones though, since his clears and ganks were good and he stays relevant late game.

I think it's more about people getting bored of him rather than considering him outclassed. There are other, fresh junglers that do roughly the same job.

Also, he's really squishy early game and has no real escape or gap closer outside of his ultimate. You get blown up instantly if you are not careful.

This is my belief. He can snowball hard but only if he gets a few kills early. Its to easy to mess up early and have that lead to a poor game in general.
