I tried the stand but I prefer playing without it. I play on the XL and my hands are big enough to play without it. Although, my brother is getting his fire emblem edition 3ds soon so I test my games on there. I'll probably use a stand for his 3ds because it feels too small in my hands... Lol "that's what she said!"
and the thought of using only my left to hold the 3DS
That's why you don't use only your left hand to hold the 3DS. It's possible to still help support the system with your right pinky, ring finger, and/or palm while also holding the stylus with the other three fingers, you know. I can't see why anyone first thinks to hover their right hand high above the screen while poking the stylus perpendicular into it, but this seems to be the most common awkward posture that causes hand cramps.
The stand can actually make it more difficult to play KIU or any game if anything, as it gets in the way. It's great for holding the system up to record gameplay videos or watch Netflix or something though.
