What would this accomplish?  If you make genocide easier, it will only further
encourage players to clue stack.

There are easier ways to accomplish this.  You could reinstate timercide.
Or reset the game if a team is fewer than X planets.  Or change the res
location to be more distant from the homeworld.

However, I think LPS is part of the game.  If people insist on clue-stacking
on a team to geno a bunch of clueless twinks, then they deserve the boredom
of it all.  If they want a fun and challenging game, they can get it without
any help from code changes: join the weaker team.
