Still have to wait until ur GCD is completely done, only then can u pop guard on a person.

I cant possibly convey how annoying this is while pvptanking... many times i thought i guarded someone when nope, GCD says otherwise....

Just make it off GCD pls, wasting so much time on it is so bad.

few things first are you using key bind or clicks?
Hopefully key, that said if your mouse is on any of the UI elements it can "mess with" the ability and the UI just "flashes" without doing anything- especially if you are using a mouse button as the key.
if you are using any abilities that triggered the global you must wait even if you cancel that ability.
What you are probably wanting is the guard to be off the GCD/ have no cool down on swap.
lag an other issues cause a delay in this.
I recommend you go to fleet and swap your guard on randoms to verify it working as intended outside of the warzone then repeat inside and record with times so you can let the devs know.

Yeah i have it bound. Type of instance does not matter. Guard wont trigger, unless ur GCD is completely done.

What i would like to see is guard being off the GCD like say shoulder cannon when u fire a missile. It has a GCD of its own, but u can use it between ur main abilities. That would get rid of having to wait for the GCD to be completely done in order for guard to fire properly.
