DBD League might be an independent eSports organization, but the growing group has now been officially recognized by Dead by Daylight’s team. Behaviour Interactive will offer a huge sum of over 1 million cumulative Iridescent Shards to the top four winners of DBD League’s ongoing Winter Circuit, which features 16 teams. 

The first place team will receive 60,000 Iridescent Shards, with second place taking in 30,000 Iridescent Shards. Third place will earn 27,000 Iridescent Shards, with fourth place earning 18,000. (There are up to 8 players per team, adding up to the final total of over 1 million Shards.)

DBD League’s Winter Circuit - lasting from 27 January until 2 March 2024 - features well-known teams in the Dead by Daylight competitive community, including Elysium, Infinity, Misery, and Calamity. In addition to the Iridescent Shards donated by Behaviour Interactive, the event also offers a relatively sizable monetary prize pool of its own. The first place winner will take home $1,100, with the second place winner earning $300 and third place getting $100. 

Dead by Daylight has previously sponsored some DBD championships on Battlefy, known as the Dead by Daylight Community Cup, in 2023. However, this is the first time the Behaviour team has directly supported an independent competitive Dead by Daylight league. 

The prizes Behaviour Interactive provided to DBD League, and the large prizes offered by the League itself, reflect a growing interest in Dead by Daylight’s competitive scene in the game’s community. However, as some fans shift to viewing the game through a more competitive and less casual lens, balance becomes increasingly important, and some players are concerned about the current state of the game. Well-known Fog Whisperer and streamer Otzdarva announced a few months ago that he would stop making detailed balance videos about the game after he felt that developers failed to listen to his feedback. 

Hens, another popular Dead by Daylight streamer, content creator, and YouTuber who has organized multiple Dead by Daylight events, also responded with his thoughts on the donation on Twitter. “Even [though] this acknowledgment is nice, by far [the] biggest thing the devs could possibly do for comp would be to fix the laggy Killer POV,” he pointed out. “This bug is 4 months old now. It's really, really hard/demotivating to organize tourneys/showcases knowing the quality will always be subpar.”
