I'm on chapter 350ish and it involves the battle between between the killer organization, broker and mc etc. Lots of people are killed or trying to kill the other characters. Seems kind of nuts if death in the game = death in real life. So I'm not sure if it does. I recall reading that death in mission's results in death if you cant pay the penalty(?) and quitting the game (not logging in and completing missions in 3 months) results in "accidental deaths." The world building of the game is so far really lacking. It's seems like there is maybe a couple hundred users or less, yet somehow players also supposedly can make a fortune playing it.
