I suppose it's another technical thread.

Does anyone know how to achieve a high score in PCB? Does it have to do with cherries?

The largest factor is timing the activations of your Borders.

Interesting. Usually I just have my cherry border until it runs out (I'll assume most people do this). Also it's true when you let go of the shift button you gain more points right?

I had never heard that, though it does seem logical. I may test that tomorrow, I may.

Interesting. @Wolfe: Care to explain that? Does that mean get as many borders as you can, or get borders at specific times, or...

Timing them so that you get borders at times when you can hit a lot of enemies, or hit a boss accurately for an extended period of time.
Also, typically you'll want to be unfocused while having borders, as that greatly increases your border bonus for most characters.
The wiki actually has a pretty handy scoring guide for PCB. I'd try to summarize it, but I'm not that great at PCB, and it's system is relatively complex.

Tis true though. I've experimented with Sakuya B and I was able to raise up a lot of points.

I see, neat. I had never spared the required duration to test it, but I'll accept your statement as fact.
