It would take a lot of denial to say that mages aren't both in a good place, and are receiving a ton of developer attention at the same time.
They have 3 viable PvE specs, many quality of life abilities, and cool factor to spare.
I'm not sure how anybody can refute that they are on top of the pile at the moment. Not claiming they are OP, simply that as a class they certainly have life better then most, if not all. On top if it, they seem to be getting the lion's share of dev love as well.
Enjoy it, don't fight it.
