Are mages really being pushed out of the meta?

The NA boards and reddit are filled with QQ threads stating that mages are currently useless in the meta. Having started a new account and completely neglecting my other one, I haven't played a game of PvP in a while. Many blame it on AP itemization being 'weak' compared to AD itemization. Are the boards overreacting or are they right?
