Am I supposed to press the 13 in db13 together or just really fast separately?

I'm asking because I don't think I'm doing this right. It's probably the timing.

In that exact order, fast.. on hit, you should get B1-DB3. On whiff, you should just get B1. But you have to do it fast.. down, back, 1, 3. Then you can do B2.

I just roll my left thumb really fast for the DB part.. then 1,3.
 
I'm confused, what's the difference between getting B12D2 and B1DB3? Am I covering different things the opponent can do? The vid shows you getting it on a wakeup U3 both times.

You can do it midscreen or against invincible wake-ups frames. If you hit them with the B12D2 option, they just eat a normal B12D2 or it could possibly become a KB. If they block, you're safe. If you hit them with the B1DB3 option instead, they eat a normal B1DB3 and then you can follow up with F4-mix. If they block B1DB3, you're very safe.

my question is, whats the purpose of the option select, i mean just doing b12d2 accomplishes oki just fine without doing this, whats the point?

also how exactly does it work? cuz so far all saw is using it on the same wakeup twice in a row and one finished the string the other cancelled into restand, whats teh difference?

This works best if you cancel off your opponent's invincible wake-up frames. If they get clipped doing a wakeup, you can get the B12D2 KB. If they wake-up blocking, the DB3 will push them back and you'll be safe.

This is fantastic ^_^
Also I did NOT know you were on Team Kabal, Scars.
I've been meaning to compile all the U2 and U3 attacks forever, so I can learn to punish accordingly. This is a handy tool to have for such an endeavor.

Sometimes on wake-up from max distance (like in my video above), I'll input B1-BF1(amp). Depending how they stand-up, B1 could just whiff... or they get hit by B1-BF1(amp), possibly the krushing blow version for a close conversion.
