My belief is it's the specific courses played on and how well the players do with mids/fairways. My guess would be maybe a handful of holes total were thrown with true high speed distance drivers and some of them didn't seem to help much to get more distance anyway.
Last point is most of the guys you mentioned are the top ranked players in the event. There was 4 (Eagle, Simon, Dickerson (12th), and Barry Schultz) who finished outside of the top 10 but were going in the highest 4 ranked players. Uli was 3 points behind Schultz, and the other 2 (Kevin Jones & Barsby) were 1022 and 1020 respectively.

FWIW, it is interesting that DD went 1-2 in FPO, but their top placed MPO sponsored player barely missed the top 20 (Zach Melton). Makes you realize that DD doesn't have that many MPO players. Zach Melton, Risley,McBride, Castro, Clemmons, and Oakley all have good showings from time to time, but they aren't perennial top 15-20 guys. They really do seem to snag people with a cult following more so than top tier MPO players.

Say what you want about the MPO team, they sure are killing it on the women's side.

Westside TP Underworld and Latitude GL Core are 2 of my favorite 4 discs, ever. So any superman that won't throw girls discs, ship them to me.

Also a 150g JK Valk is in top 5, for me. So, yep I throw girls' discs. Lol

Dude, it's OK, you don't have to apologize for your personal preferences to anyone.

When PM won in 2012, Dynamic was just on the verge of selling discs.
They were a website sponsor, not a disc sponsor.
When DD started selling discs under their own DD name (molded by Lat64), Paul dropped the DD sponsorship.

What has been the top finishes for a MPO player that has switched companies?

I believe that a FPO player has done this. Name this player

Do Master's count, because then yes.

I do have my opinions on Trilogy disc design, how the wings are usually hollowed out with relatively more weight in the flight plate.....
Different story on the womens side, Trilogy took first (Paige B.) and second (Paige P.), as well as other slots.

1 Gregg Barsby Innova
2 Paul McBeth Innova
2 Joshua Anthon Innova
4 Paul Ulibarri Prodigy
5 Matthew Orum Prodigy
6 Seppo Paju Prodigy
6 James Conrad Innova
8 Cale Leiviska Prodigy
9 Kevin Jones Mixed/Prodiscus
9 Cameron Colglazier Prodigy
9 Richard Wysocki Trilogy
12 Chris Dickerson Prodigy
12 Andrew Presnell ???
14 Nikko Locastro Mixed
14 Nate Perkins Discmania/Innova
16 Martin Hendel Innova
16 Calvin Heimburg Innova
16 Chris Clemons Trilogy
16 Andrew Fish Discraft
20 Philo Brathwaite Innova
Drew Gibson:
Last year sponsored by Dynamic Discs: @ Worlds = 32th; (@ GMC last year = 27th)
This year sponsored by discs right for his power level (Innova): @ Worlds = 40th

Clearly, Trilogy > Innova.

I am surprised both by the amount of Prodigy players doing so well and the huge lack of Discraft pros on the list.
