Would it work?

Seems like nobody* would win trades with him, although he would unintentionally push lanes with his passive.

Nocturne top is damn legit and he can win many matchups.
His only "problem" is that he pushes the lane automatically, but a pushed lane is not automatically bad.

He is forced to push the lane, but he has may ways to stop people from killing him.

I'd say it's viable but I would think that it loses to any champ with good poke.

As long as you ward and you have a little sense when it comes to map awareness pushed lane shouldn't be a problem.

I'm not saying he loses to ranged champs, but champs with good poke, e.g. Maokai, Rumble, etc. he's going to have a harder time early game. While he is a carry technically, he can also do fine if he just farms. Other big problem about him being top, you lose all his gank potential from your ult and people know when you have it.

In the jungle, people can expect it around X time, but they won't be 100% sure.

I've tried it before in ranked. I dunno, it worked pretty well vs a Singed, except I fed really badly :p

You're kind of squishy early game, and the lane gets really pushed. Spamming Q makes you oom, then you can't W out of anything. He's not bad, but not good either.

Get Teleport and you'll automatically have a lot of that ganking pressure back, never know where he might teleport to and ult from.

I bet he can also put a lot of pressure on the enemy jungle when paired with an agressive jungler on his team

No way mane. Push top, ult mid.

Ward enemy Red/Blue, push top, coordinate jungler to gank red/blue and ult red/blue.

Posted this and then TOTALLY forgot about it. His ult into the enemy jungle to steal buffs/ruin everything does seem really strong. Might have to try it out sometime.
