Cant Join State of Emergency Server

The server says max slots is 24 but iv seen around 37 people on it. I try to join server but it says “Server is full (past 24 players)” but i see other people connecting to the server. I installed their soehandling files too. So how can I join the server?

*Update: I was able to join a server w/ 24 player slots but 28 people were on. I just still cant join SOE server even though it has the players slots. The only error I get is that it is full and past 24 player slot

I found out that the server has a soft cap at 24-26 so i need to wait for it to get below that or just get lucky w/ soft cap

It’s a fivereborn thing? Every server can’t have more then 24
