The Battlefield 1 beta (and the rest of EA) is having some bad server issues

The Battlefield 1 beta has finally gone live for the public, but the servers aren't having it. Many would-be players (including me) are getting error messages from the game that say the server has "failed to connect to EA Online" and thus can't play. The official Battlefield Twitter account is directing disappointed and/or unreasonably angry users to this Tweet from EA support:

There isn't much to do about it until EA can get its server situation stabilized. But at least you know you're not the only one who can't get online. Until then, you might as well enjoy some of the goofy, glitchy Battlefield 1 moments that have already cropped up.
