Moments later the corpse disappear meaning that he returns to the real world and it is game over for him. Gon's worries about Killua's spell, but a guy named Nickes overhears them and tells them not to worry since the thing that killed the guy lying in the ground before isn't from a game spell instead a Nen of another player is the reason why that guy was killed.

Killua asks on why players kill each other Nickes tells him its because of the card number limit system to where the amount of copies that a card exists at the same time and the more the card is valuable the smaller number of copies exists which also means the the more player there are the lower chance for each player to find a card. Nickes tries to let Gon and Killua join his group as he tells them that his group's strength lies in numbers but aren't killing other players.
