[UPDATE]  EA Support claims the connectivity issues have been resolved. 

[UPDATE] This appears to be a DDOS attack on Level 3 again. Players are reporting being able to sign onto the server, dropping out shortly thereafter. Shacknews recommends going to sleep and praying to Zombie Harambe that we will all be able to play Battlefield 1 tomorrow.

[UPDATE] Our readers are reporting that all of EA's Origin servers are experiencing issues.

EA has issued a statement on the ongoing intermittent outage.

We will let you know as soon as we find out more!
