Tanks are still game changers in PvP. Just don't expect to "tank" in the PvE sense where you stack your defensive stats really high and expect to take a lot of direct hits. You'd probably want to go more for offensive stats so you can at least do some decent damage and have a high amount of endurance so that you can guard without dying too fast.

Your job is counter-focus-fire and protecting your allies (particularly healers). If you've ever healed you'd know how much more difficult it is without a guard.

Some tanks put up hundreds of thousands of protection points through clever use of taunts and guard swapping. That's like negating an entire DPS player on the enemy team while still bringing powerful CCs and keeping your teammates alive.
