You'll have people who are in it for the wins and people who are in it for the bonus, and they are on the same team with conflicting interests.
Have you done any arena? Basically every fight is 1-2 sam tanks per team with a healer/doter or nubs who die instantly. Even fights where 2/3 get popped and die instantly the fight still generally take 3-4 mins to finish due to all the tanks in it.

Only thing ive noticed with "slow que" is if you have multiple toons in que at once at slower times, otherwise it has not been that bad imo.
