There's bound to be more people who didn't it in a request either just waiting for its launch......

Then there are people like me that requested it anyway even though I'm tossing up whether to spend more money on more headphones and probably wont end up joining
...oh who am I kidding the money is as good as gone already

Actually chances are more than half of the people who've requested it don't even care for it very much - happens every time, there was HUGE hype around this, not just on audio forums, not just on this particular section of Massdrop either because the general newsletter was sent out for it (same that happened with Evangs' MiniVan drop earlier this year).
People who have no interest in this particular hobby just request it for the hell of it, it's fun to see big number counts, it's fun to be involved in the hype and then others just go like "eh may as well even though I 99% won't buy in". On the other hand, everyone who wants it has most definitely requested, maybe not all but the vast majority.
Still, don't expect these to sell out in minutes personally, maybe within the hour or two.

Good to know I may actually have a chance because this is my first mass drop. Any tips to ensure I win a pair?
Thanks!

It's basically first come, first serve. If you really want to ensure a pair, then all you have to do is order as soon as the drop begins (in 9 hours time EDIT: 10 hours T_T), but I also think that the drop will last at least a good hour (especially since it's currently limited to 1 per customer now).

Sorry, that was my bad! I converted the time to AEDT when we first received the email 4 days ago, and stuck with that time ever since (12AM 9th November). DST ended soon afterwards, and I forgot to account for that since our DST began early October. So now I have to wait until 1AM instead of 12AM to try and go for a low serial number HD6xx T_T

How does this work? Where should I go to place order?

The drop is currently inactive at the moment, as shown in the product page. In about 9 1/2 hours :P time, the drop will be active and the "REQUEST/REQUESTED" button will say "JOIN DROP". Clicking on that will take you to the payment details page. If you want to have an idea what that page looks like, feel free to go to another drop below and click join.

question for you guys. this is going to be my first time buying here. i can't seem to add my payment method on settings. do you just have to do it when you join the drop?

Yep only when you join a drop for the first time - but someone from Massdrop suggested down there that you join a random drop, then immediately cancel it (you have til the end of the drop anyway to cancel) so you have your card details saved for when the time comes
