Ok, I just thought because with elbows, knees and feet there is less room for uppercuts if you get what I mean. (More "moves" to choose from described in "video game language")
But with cross armed defense the only punches that are truly dangerous are the uppercuts.
It just seems to me like an effective defense to quickly get in the inside somebody (incase of a streetfight) using headbutts and bodyattacks as my main offense.
I probably still need some defense or preparation against kicks.
And sparring experience to see how I have to execute it correctly.
