If anything we lack survivabillity against cleaves, which dominate current arena.In PvP their survivability coupled with high damage makes them a scary thing to come across.
no it doesent. mop ruined the dot part of the multidot class, pre mop the dots were the damage; in mop everything is tied to MGwell it never made sense to me to have a spec that is about putting dots on a traget and then have a direcct dmg spell as a filler that was from the destro school no less. the MG style affliction certainly makes more sense to me than pre-MoP affliction.

For PvE, they are topping Meters on a lot of Fights and on others they are never Bottom, for Example Council of Elders and Megaera have 19 Warlocks out of 20 in the World top Ranks.
And that is on top of their Survivability, which will be nerfed in 5.4 so Warlocks (and other Classes like Shadow Priests or Hunters) don't have increased Survivability to be more desirabled for PvE. For PvP, the Developers hinted that they may do something else to compensate and I'm sure if Warlocks start losing too many PvP Brawls then they get buffed accordingly.
revamps do not mean buffs.
no one asked for an entire class redesign in MoP. No one asked for a shitty green flame quest whose dev time could have been put into fixing bugs.
This is stuff that was thrown at us to increase warlock numbers. Nothing was needed, apart from bug fixes, which never saw the light of day.
Their DPS and talent problems the devs are encountering at the moment are the result of their very poor design and lack of long terms overarching design strategy. (ie, KJC then 'omg we don't want people to cast and move').
You're not always on the top of the totem pole for nerfs? Please, in the timeline of WoW, warlocks have been OP for more than they have been underpowered, be happy.
I bet gc is going to nerf demo due to most will change to it in 5.4
Cuz we dont want everyone to go same spec!

Nah, we are pretty good in pve, decentish in pvp if you are good
Hey! Hey! I think i found a rare candy!
Congratulations, your Slowpoke has evolved into Slowbro!
Warlocks has been top 3 PvE dps (mostly nr. 1) ENTIRE MoP expansion.
At start it was affliction with sac who simply was the best dps spec.
Now Demo with UVLS is ahead of everything.
We are a must have in every raid comp. Nobody beats a warlock in a raid, because we bring so much.
Those two seem to be the best sites to look at when trying to look up DPS. Guild logs and personal logs are almost virtually useless because of how messed up they can be due to gear/skill differences. Now just using those two alone and if there is another website that compares DPS please link it, warlocks are doing well. I personally only care about 10M heroic and looking at that warlocks are exceptional on three fights, two as affliction and one as destruction and if you knew how Primordius works you would realize why destruction is even good for that one fight. If anything affliction multi-dot should be nerfed a tad with it's single target being buffed while destruction should just be buffed, demonology seems to be in a fine place.
Look at the arena ladder and RBG ladder for your own battlegroup but here is mine.
Looking at this there are no "popular" warlock 2's teams, the only place warlocks are actually popular are in 5s teams. Warlock survivability is more than adequate for PvP and their damage is good in a rated battleground/random battleground. In arena situation (2v2 or 3v3) they need more single target burst to really be threatening, that or to play against a bad team. Personally I am fine with how warlocks seem to be right NOW, that said the changes coming make me kinda cringe to a degree ~_~
If you have any better method rather than personal experience of judging the games PvE and PvP please link it so it can be used. If NOT, these are pretty much what we have to work with even if you call them useless for whatever random reason.

Because some warlock stole Ghostcrawller's girlfriend (or boyfriend) at the end of The Burning Crusade xpac
They are nerfing us all time since TBC, BUT we will survive!

Santa Claus threw gifts hitting 190k and beat Bunny threw stun eggs.
For the God sake, stop talking bullshit ... a 650K warlock is using soul link or using the voidwalker buff.
Wakup and ltp.
Ghostcrawler is gone, time to celebrate!
I think warlock get nerf because hi level very strong but i think most warlock do no understand how to play hi level
Only thing that needs a nerf is UVoLS, so they can better adjust the numbers

never this drastic and game mechanic breaking.they pretty much redesign classes every xpac
