If you can an only queue 2800 points of skill per week... think how long it would take.

The truth is in order to get anywhere in any realistic time you must log in most days.
A realistic amount of time is subjective. For you, given your playing habits, you're not satisfied with the return on your time invested. Only way to fight that is to realize, as you are pointing out, that it's using the psychology of a player to get you to keep playing and fill up those buckets.

The reality that should be accepted is that we realize that it's a game and there isn't any value placed on any of the various buckets and they are just indicators of time spent, nothing else.
Just can't let go of the Excelsior...
