But more on topic, people don't play him because of two main reasons. One, he's ugly. As hell. You think I'm kidding, but seriously. If you want a champion but you know nothing of them, you're not going to pick the hideous troll. Secondly, he's... tough for a very specific reason. Since he isn't specialized, (The way Amumu is for CC or Shen for global presence), he requires a solid understanding of jungling to be able to use him well.
