I have researched quite a bit looking at both their skill trees and pvp abilities.

I don't really care much about like Huttball. I will be in a group with a sith sorcerer and a Maurauder. Going to be a PvP Group and i'm being the tank.

I can't decide though between tank Assasian or tank Juggernaut.

I heard Jugg is insane to kill with minimal dps but the assasian can be tough to kill as well, just cant protect teammates as well.

Anyone have a point that will help me make my final decision?

This is my first MMO, but in no way am I looking for the EASIEST class, if that is anyones argument for playing one over the other.

I personally preferred to play Jugg as a tank than an assassin.

Well, they both fill the same role. Which class story/aesthetic do you like more? Which will you enjoy playing more. Another question, do you want armour, or a double bladed lightsaber?

They're both viable classes for the role, perhaps considering something outside your duty (which I'm glad you see as first priority) will allow you to better enjoy the character?

I played assassin tank all the way to max lvl in general beta,and this is what I found. The assassin takes longer to hit its stride, having lower kinetic Dam Red. (although you trade off with higher elemental reduction) and fewer defensive cooldowns. It has higher DPS and as you level, quite a lot more control abilities and utilities, although I only hit 42 in general with jugg, I personally found assassin much more fun to play, and just as good.

Shadow/Assassin are flexable classes with access to a lot of tools is all. The Jugg/Guard has to get up in someones face while a clothies can work from greater range (30m stun range is a godsend). Having access to stealth is wonderful for PvP as well.

A side note...if you are stealthed and the person you are protecting takes damage, you come out of stealth as is proper/balanced.

Shadow/Assassin also mix up kinetic/internal/pure force damage, thus they can poke at various weak points more regularly.

Jugg/Guard have their wealth of abilities to help as well, though it is possible to starve this class of action points if you are a skilled kiter. It basically all comes down to personal preference.
