There are two methods I found that we can apply to elevate their current situation at the moment, but both solutions cost money.

Internet Upgrade

  1. Contact your internet service provider and consider upgrading your internet connection.
  2. For optimal performance, I suggest connecting your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable if you currently use Wi-Fi.
  3. Consider upgrading your Modem/Router to a newer model if you use an older one.

This option is recommended for players who play the game seriously and plan to rank up in the competitive mode. Furthermore, This option allows players to be in exclusive lobbies for Prime players. This will slightly decrease the queue time because the number of Prime subscription players is smaller than that of Free users.

My Thoughts

I think the long queue time in Counter Strike 2 is beyond anyone’s control, requiring resolution from Valve shortly. Furthermore, there’s no official information from Valve on addressing this matter. Furthermore, I used the methods mentioned above to improve my situation. You can also patiently await Valve’s resolution if you prefer not to invest money.
