Hey guys, I'm an ex-Challenger (s4, d1 75++ points atm) who plays Nocturne

Playstyle

I'm not gonna go too deep in details here, it's hard for me to tell you what to do and what not to do. You'll learn by playing, I can't tell a silver player how to play like a diamond through a text guide.
First off, Nocturne is not about early game. He's not bad, but he really need his items, and his pre 6 ganks are mehh. The new fear is **** compared to before, but still useful.
It really depends wether to start blue or red, but it doesn't matter really. If your botlane is strong, you might want to start the opposite buff so they can get early lvl 2. Also, if they have a strong counter-jungler, try to start where they won't expect you to, just to be safe.
I like to gank once, maybe twice before lvl 6 to burn summoners, but only if I see a 100% chance to do something. Keep track of their summoners. Flash has a 5 min cd. If anyone blows flash, gank them at lvl 6, get a free kill. After that, keep farming jungle, tax lanes, get lots of farm, and gank/counter-gank as efficient as possible, only when you see your chance. The worst thing that can happen as a Nocturne is to get behind, you'll be useless. You can't dive into their team without items. You'll die instantly. Try to have a goal to have 100 cs after 15-20 mins. If you do that, you'll be really strong and have a huge impact on the mid-game. And if you see their mid roam top or bot, you might want to go mid and push, try to get a tower. Objectives > kills.
Later in the game, decide wether you want to help your backline or dive their backline. Nocturnes ultimate is great for picking off targets, so abuse that.
I don't know what more to say, I'll answer questions if anyone got any. Thanks for reading!
