I can do pretty well in battle grounds and put out some good damage and CC, but the second a melee class puts his eyes on me I can't beat them unless they're literally keyboard turning. Do any of you have tips to help improve?

The problem is that affliction's main damage is 20 stack agony which takes like 30 secs to reach 20. So basically untill that point if you cant spam UAs on the target, you will die faster. You cant really kite because of the lack of slows/snares etc. Basically Affli is rly bad for 1v1 against melees.

I honestly dont know what's good for 1v1. Affli and destro are good for 3s as far as i know.

Well you can't really have it both ways. Imagine what that'd do for Affliction's insane spread pressure if your ST was buffed. 

 

The simple answer is don't try to 1v1, delay, run, do whatever. With old Affliction, self dispel healing you, the sheer amount of talents and glyphs for increased passive healing with fel armor, having soul link up etc; yes, it was do-able. Now you'll probably just get your face smashed.
