It seems to me that the USA, FIDE and BCF all made progress in the number of players attracted to their activities when rating/grading was introduced.
I believe that, when the ECF goes for monthly figures, it will popularise competitive chess somewhat. Many ECF officers seem now to agree.

Which event was this?
Basildon Rapidplay - https://britchess.wufoo.com/cabinet/ead ... 263d214106
The results are in - https://chess-results.com/tnr490123.aspx?lan=1&art=4 - but I haven't found anything saying who paid the higher entry fee and who didn't, or what prizes were awarded for second and third places.
