I think you should really clarify your drop description. As of right now, it states:
Maximum Units: 5,000 Maximum Participants: 4,000 Chance at bonus items: 1/# of Participants
You differentiated between the number of units and number of participants, so I'm assuming that your "1/# of Participants" means that getting a second unit does not increase your chance of getting the bonus items. Is that correct or should the chance at bonus items be "1/# of units" instead of participants?
It's a rather important distinction since at least some of the drop participants ordered a second unit in hopes of increasing their chances for the bonus items.

Up till now all mee what sales have been - you buy up to two mystery bags and you can get any of the participating units or the big prize inside instead, so technically every purchased unit raises your chance and I think that's what massdrop is aiming for with the additional big prizes too - you either get a mee iem or a prize, so the chance is on per unit basis.

To further add to his statement; I believe without additional prize at 5000 mark, 1000 additional add of participants will only decrease percentage of winning for people already in the drop. There should be another prize at 5000 mark; otherwise, it is only making chance of winning less for people whom already joined. We will now have 1/5000 chance to win instead of 1/4000. Adding 1000 more is great for MD but will significantly decrease odds of winning for participants.

True that. It'll be nice if MD would include all 4 prices in the pool if it hits 5,000 targets. xD

I'm pretty sure they're doing that regardless. Also, I believe there are two pairs of 7xx's up for grabs.
