Deception is fine. Of course it's not going to have any sustained damage as it has the highest burst in the game.
Madness needs a lot of love as it's not viable in PVP and as a PVE spec it's still lacking.
Darkness needs tweaking for both PVE and PVP. It's not terrible but still falls short of PT and Jugg tanks due to spikeyness.

Now I'm speaking from deception/infiltration point of view. They could make balance/madness spec a more viable pve DPS spec.
Last time I checked Assassins burst was only good on opening and even then its not very consistent. I know some other classes like Snipers, Rage Marauders, Carnage marauders, Arsenal Mercs that actually have about the some amount of burst if not more and all beat Assassins on dps in long fights by what the op said about 500. The tax for having stealth should not be 500 less sustain, we all know that right now the most op thing in warzones is healing and some nice upfront burst doesn't counter that.

Burst damage doesnt matter in pve keep reading what you want to tell yourself thats not true. You base you dps on one or two abilities right out pf stealth and be crap dps the rest pf the fight. Nobody has been able to explain why sins parse majorly below any class. Oh thats right you want to cherry pick your info

However though, I can hardly imagne bioware making burst completely obsolete in pvp.

No tight "enrage" timers on a relatively small add etc?

Completely true. Sins are the best solo outworld PvP class.... if only we actually had some solo outworld PvP like other MMOs do.
Besides that, they are a baddies super-pro grinder class, it makes them go on the forums and scream nerf.
Scream nerf to the least useful PvE class of all (both as DPS and tanking) and the class (not spec, whole class) that is not accepted into ranked PvP if not exactly to guard nodes. No PvP tank and no PvP DPS, just guard nodes. The same nodes that come patch 2.4 won't be a factor any more.
