Hexy's Best of the Best Dead by Daylight Tournament

Dead by Daylight is a game we've been watching from day 1, as we surely love our horror movies, and any game that pits survivor against methodical killer was always going to be a win in my book! The game came out of the gate with innovative gameplay and an ultra creepy back story about giant spider gods feeding off blood and hope. It wasn't long before the game added iconic movie villains like Freddy Krueger, Michael Meyers, Leatherface and more, offering up their final girls along side them as well as fantastically designed playgrounds in which to hide and slay. Surprisingly, there hasn't been a great deal of friendly competition (if any) here in the states, so top player Hexy set out to fix that with the Best of the Best Tournament!
