    Quick question, does the invite to worlds include your trips cost or do you have to pay for that yourself? IF you have to pay for it yourself what are the prizes that make it worth it to travel all that way (especially from other countries) if theirs a chance you wont make top cut.

    Your first question depends on where you live; some countries are giving away trips+invites for their top Nationals finishers. Every invite gained by rating anywhere in the World is just an invite to play, no trip. Each Worlds competitor gets some "swag", like a binder and/or backpack, some packs, beach ball/towel, shirt, promo card(s), nice dinner/lunch thing (at least it's been like that every year), etc.

    So if you live in the USA, which I do, and you get an invite, theirs no payment to hep defer costs so you can go? Sorry your aswers seemed a little unclear to me and Im just trying to clarify.

    You are correct. With the exception of the top 4 finishers at Worlds 07 and Nationals '08, none of the invitations come with any sort of compensation for travel.
