For the last 25 minutes, I have been DCed and been allowed into the game for 1 min and then DCed again.

This has happened 5 times.

Are the servers cactus? Or are you under DOS attachs?

Either way, looks like I start an early maint and hope that when it isfinished, I am once more able to enter and play the game.

PA posted a chat announcement in-game that they were aware of the issue.  Then I got disconnected again and said f-it.

Same problem here and it seems to be an ongoing issue.

I had the problem since last year. Sad it hasnt been fixed yet. Gettin DCed every 5 seconds makes gameplay rather unenjoyable.

I am fine once I get into the game but the launcher however is a complete mess for me. Have to start the launcher 25 times before it will finally get past the patcher failure message and actually load all the way to start game button. The ironic thing is I get this when no patches/updates have been released in the 10-20 minutes since I last closed out the game to grab a bite to eat.
