I just installed the game on Steam, tried to play it, linked my account with my origin account, but then any time I try to play from steam it gets to the "continue" screen with the server selector etc. and when I click continue it goes black with the loading icon in the bottom corner for about two cycles then goes right back to the continue screen. No error or anything it's just a loop that won't allow me to connect. Tried every server option there, went back on Origin and it worked. Uninstalled on Origin and tried on Steam again, didn't work, reinstalled on steam, ran everything as administrator, did a ton of stuff that different people recommended generally to fix game performance on this game and none of it seemed to help my steam install get past the continue screen. Is there any fix for this? Is it a problem connecting my steam account to my origin account?

This workaround works for PC and console.
Step 1: Disconnect from the internet when you are in the loading screen ends (around 4 seconds)
Step 2: If successful, it will into the lobby screen. Then connect again to the Internet and spam to collect all rewards Do this fast it's important!
Step 3: If this didn't work, try again it could take a couple of tries. If you try this on steam and it doesn't work, try this with the Origin client.
Creating an alt account to play on.
Of course, this is not a fix, but I marked this as a solution to get the workaround to people who are stuck.
Thanks goes out to our amazing community for finding this!

I played for a couple hours after resolution, logged off and when I came back the same issue is happening again. I am beyond frustrated with this game.
