More a website question than a rules question.

I am down to 1 province without a center, with no armies, why am I still obligated to finish this game? Is there a way to leave without effecting my website reputation. I literally can't do anything, but I am still in this game.

No units and no centers?

Check the "Status" panel under your game, I think there should be a button near the bottom that lets you stop following the game once you're eliminated.

I hope this helps. I know the button exists at least! :D

I'm definitely not eliminated though, even though I should be. It is still counting as one of my 3 games. I would quit but isn't there some kind of Ambassador reputation thing to get?

Yes, the site leaves the game on your active games list even after you've been reduced to 0 centers and 0 units (which meant by eliminated), and you need to manually stop following it.

Ambassador status is only affected if you "surrender", and I think in this case the surrender button should be replaced with a "stop following" button. I'm not sure what the exact wording for it is, but it should be under the status panel.

EDIT: Oh, I think you'll get your ambassador status once your games actually finish, so you might have to wait a while.

The button says “ignore” & yes it’s under the status drop down.

Just to clear up a few things
- Once a Build phase is processed that leaves you with 0 centres and 0 units, you are now officially eliminated from the game
- Being eliminated means that the game no longer counts to your limit of 3, and as has been mentioned if you go to the Status tab in the game, where the Surrender button used to be it shoukld now say Ignore
- If you do nothing, the game will continue to appear in your game list (but does not count to your 3)
- If you click Ignore, the game will be removed from your game list
- NOTE: if you have lost all your armies on the board but you have not yet had the Build phase, you need to wait for the Build phase. it is the Build phase where the software determines you are officially eliminated. If you surrender before then, you WILL be penalized as normal for the surrender. The game WILL also count to your game limit until the Build Phase has processed

Out of curiosity, what about the situation where you have one non home-sc (say Portugal, since it always seems to be the problem here), and no units left? Is there a way to ignore the game? Just asking out of scientific curiosity.

I've seen this question raised in the forum before, and I'm pretty sure the answer is that you are stuck. A player in that scenario has not been eliminated so the "surrender" button will still be there.

The good news is that the situation rarely persists for long. You are right that one situation where it can persist is standoff between units in MAO and Spain, leaving Portugal open.
