What's the point of tanks anymore??

The new season is really confusing, I can't understand it till now, can someone explain? Like what's the point of tanks anymore? I can't even survive to a single person. I can't farm in lane, I have to play incredibly safe, cannot touch a minion often, I'm always behind.....Later my teammates are getting one shot, I'm buying support items like a moron, getting flamed for it because no one ever seen top laners buy support items. I've created my own strategy which is so stupid but somehow works, I went from gold 5 to plat 1 by only playing Sion top with my dumb strategy....I get flamed and harassed for it very often. When ppl see your builds are off meta they will become aggressive for no reason.
