Wonder, which is the biggest reason for it: Resources, Lack of Competition or Coaching/Player Skill.

All good EU players go to NA to have a better chance of OWL, whereas KR and NA players can stay in their regions. Smaller regions like PAC and AUS get ignored by everyone, and there's more logistical issues with going to Korea or NA, so the talented players stay in their regions and hope they eventually get scouted

Well, with the exception that KR players have also been going to NA and PAC, and a few cases in AUS (probably making those regions stronger anyways) without it costing KR much since they only have 8 team spots.

Small addition to the argument that still supports what you mentioned.

Well that's partly of the issue that most of the top EU-talent gets poached to NA Contenders, but would say that 5-10 EU Contenders 2019 Season 2 players should be better options than some of the players from OWL Season 2.

Of course reality in EU is that only 2-3 teams have been solid each Contenders season. If you already stomp every other team in EU how do you get better though? It's more likely that other teams will catch up on you.
