No offence, but at that point it's no longer about patience, but rather about not wanting to waste several hours waiting to get a game of an average online shooter running.
Anyway, in my personal opinion, if people thought a gameworld was worth waiting for, they would wait. Be it for fun gameplay or rewards.
That being said, when I play the game, I see players come together and wait for others somewhat regularly. Not sure why, but in my experience, things aren't as bad as you're making them out to be.
