Oh and please, stop deciding who asserts what in your head, it's rather idiotic.
The Banite Sith utterly destroyed an order of super human peace keepers that had existed for over twenty THOUSAND years. The destruction of the Jedi was so complete that by the time Luke had come into his own, only the Rebel Alliance, their allies and a few fringe elements didn't believe that the Jedi were treacherous insurgents waiting to overthrow the Republic and take their freedom away. Sidious did more than just kill the Jedi, he destroyed everything they stood for and corrupted it to fit his own ends. It's much more impressive when you lay it all out on the table.

Now, are we talking Pre-Karpshyn Bane or Post-Karpshyn Bane? Because Pre-Drew Bane was an evil mastermind of epic proportions, Post-Drew Bane had a little Mr. Magoo in his personality.

The idea was that the Sith would hide until they took their revenge on the Jedi, hence "Revenge of the Sith". The Rule of Two was in place to keep the Sith order intact and, ideally, gaining strength until this could happen. Palpatine did bring them back into power, even if he was egotistical and power hungry, so the Rule didn't have to continue any longer.

None of this negates the fact that it was a complete waste of effort. Their master plan of the rule of two changed nothing in the long run. Well, except indirectly free Abeloth.
