Why not have "mini T-mode", during which it is only possible to take frontline planets? For example, with 2 on 2 you can take each others frontline planets, with 3 on 3 the 7 most forward planets and finally with 4 on 4 all planets. This could even be used to balance in case of 3 on 4 or even 2 on 4...
