How to get roof water into the gutter

Hi
Discussed here before but now more refined so new thread

With "light" rain water follows the green arrow and all is fine.

With "heavy" rain some/all of the water follows the red arrow and squirts over the gutter.

These are Leafguard gutters and they work very well every where on the house save this corner where 7 channels of water are directed into the trough at the edge of the roof. The gutter itself can handle the water fine; problem is with 7 channels flowing into the trough at the edge the volume / speed is excessive.

Question
What shape style design diverter would direct the down flow onto/into the gutter?

Thank you

You need to slow the water down do it doesn't over shoot the gutter. Google "gutter splash guard". These work well with traditional gutters, I would think something similar would work with the gutter guards.
