It's not trophy only. It's just payout to only players that deserve it.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the so called "Am Scam" has been going on at traditional payout tourneys both sanctioned and unsanctioned for years. If Ams wanted to rise up in protest about it, they would have done it years ago and the PDGA would be broke by now.

I'd suspect folks who do sign up for Am Worlds 2013 will be pleasantly surprised by the player's pack. In fact, I'd suggest that the majority of them will walk away with more "swag" under this system than they would in a traditional payout tournament.

I am looking forward to this. Being from the midwest and having been to several DD tourneys worlds will be great. And from what i have experienced DD is a great company and cares about the little man, they openly supported a program at the non-profit organization that i work for with no gain on their part except more people(kids) know about the sport GO DD

I have enough points for any women's division for which I am eligible, but I'm only invited to one of those division?

I would assume that Invite Div code means you are eligible to play Women's Advanced Masters, but can also play Women's Advanced if you so desire, whereas someone with an FA1 code would only have the latter option available.
