1.) I usually use it to punish abare. As you said, it's super delayable so it fits this purpose. However, it's not the fastest move so it is best used sparingly. If you start telegraphing it, then it's easily shut down. 2.) If they hit buttons, then it's a guaranteed launcher. Again, this is a move to punish and shut down abare play. There's also some safe pressure you could do to try to set up some ticks.
