Surrendering with no SC's

What effect does surrendering with no SC's, no units left do for your record?

I don't think you can "surrender" with no units or SCs... If you can, it would not help your record though.

Once eliminated from a game, there will be an "ignore" button, which doesn't do any harm to your record.

Careful!

You may have lost t all your units, and be ABOUT to lose your last SCs. But until the Build Phase, you have not ACTUALLY lost your SCs, since ownership only changes at the Build Phase. If you Surrender while you technically still own SCs, even though you are about to lost them, it will count as a Surrender on your record.

The way to tell is if you see the Ignore button instead of the Surrender one, you are OK to ignore. If it still says Surrender, clicking it will count as a surrender.
