Id like to suggest to reduce the safe portions on some maps at the map start.
I understand why we need it.
But some maps just habe way to much of it. Take empire in flames. You take 10 - 15 seconds till you encounter the first enemy.
A much better example is skittergate. You have your safe part at the start where you can afk during loading. But you can start the map right away without needing to walk for ages.
Fort is another example for a good start imo.
My suggestion would be either to put spawn in points of players closer to enemies or just put enemies earlier in the levels.
Get rid of the walking simulator at the start of the maps.
