Terrible times breed terrible things, my lord.
Fun times dancing with Kenshi, Leather Face, Shinnok, Kitana & Kano in MKXL to the song monster mash on Spotify.

It was so much fun.

no. its used to do the wake up roll deal now. so it also has functionality.
That function using same button doesn't mean it has anything to do with stance switch move per se, just like standing normal 4, string normal b34 and special move bf4 are unrelated despite relying on the same button to come out.

Sure, the grudge was always related exactly to that, button not having a useful function, but when that function is only contextually available, and only in situations when almost nothing else can be input, I'd say it's not really the case of NRS making our life easier using our controller's resources more efficiently.

Honestly, because of the importance of footsies in this game. I wouldn't be surprised if people do it to fake a fireball or something to bait a response and whiff punish.

And yeah, better look at those butts. Stance switch 4lyf.

I actually like stance switch because it gave me a free button so that I could switch block to LT and put stance on RT.
 
-it allows to MOONWALK

"THE MOONWALK"
an very special mindgame which i created early mk9:
it goes like this: during the fatal time go close to opponent and walk slightly backwards and do stance changes simultaneously!

When one provides a healthy mix of regular tbags (up/down jiggle) with stance switch tbags (side/side jiggle) to an opponent i.e., side/side, up/down, side/side, up/down, etc, it ensures unusual levels of rage for your opponent. (broken controllers, monitors, etc).
