Queen event spawn area

We had very nice, first time saw it with this many players, probably 12 or so, coordinated, multiple direction attack at queen today, worked nicely as less players starting from same direction allowed for less blocking of line of sights and everyone had better chance to actually hit boss, however, we had small issue that I hope is easy to fix, the actual spawn of queen and same probably applies to sand tyrant, is slightly to upper left corner of event circle, this allowed some players to walk shorter distance to start fight and small delay on players from right and bottom, so wanted to ask if would be possible for bosses to spawn in the exact middle or as close as possible, of the circle so we can all get in multiple groups starting from multiple direction again, if there are over 8 or 10 players, to avoid chaos of first in line blocking line of sight and others going long way around to get shot in with significant delay,



The spawn is randomized a bit. We can change it to make it exactly in the center.
However, we don't like how it ends up even now. See this video from one of the China PvE servers https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bZLHAhUiep7U08xn8EXr6HSHuYd0O35e/view
This is not fun and we're considering our options to prevent the boss camping.



R30 Patch #2 addressed this problem:
Quote- PvE: Large circle barrier will appear during the event preparation timer (20 minutes). It will prevent players from getting closer to the boss spawn area (this way it's no longer possible to camp the boss spawn). Players and vehicles that are located inside this barrier during the event announcement will be automatically despawned to prevent them from getting stuck there
