So we are now 5 weeks in to Legion and after a few rounds of hot fixes and balancing, as well as current state of PTR ... It is very easy to see that Blizzard has no interest in fixing Affliction. They say sims are not worth anything so lets go over raiding logs of how things are playing on with regards to damage done.
Currently as you see We are not strong at anything in raiding at this point and parses from EN over last week (7 days and 14 is worse) of Heroic raiding show it load and clear.

So Single Target Fight - (Emerald Nightmare) - Nythendra -> /statistics/10#dataset=100&difficulty=4&sample=7&boss=1853
AOE / Burst Target - (Emerald Nightmare) - Il'gynoth -> /statistics/10#dataset=100&difficulty=4&sample=7&boss=1873
Multi DOT - (Emerald Nightmare) -Dragons of Nightmare -> /statistics/10#dataset=100&difficulty=4&sample=7&boss=1854
Is someone at Blizzard going to take there head out of there ass or kick the person that is assigned to this mess to give us at least some plan they are working on or hope of or a real changes to come ... currently PTR shows no signs of it.
Note: I am providing data and insight and hope the person being PAID to care about our class / spec starts to soon!
Option might to be to reset all the Artifact power of Affliction players and let us add it to a other spec / class as 7.1 will be here soon enough!
