I tried but since I have not completed 2 games, I am unable to make a special game.

How do you get a completed game? Just wait until the games objective is complete? If a game says until 1 player is left, do you just wait until one player has all the worlds? If I withdraw, I do not get credit for a completed game. How can you end a game when the outcome is obvious?

That's, admittedly, a weakness in the game server. In honesty, I didn't expect people to actively withdraw from last-man-standing games, though it does make sense; but the "withdraw" option was conceived as a way to stop playing in the middle of the game and make the position available to someone else, rather than as a way to concede a game. I should add a "concede" option to meet this need in the future.

In the meantime, you can just stay enrolled in the last-man-standing game until it is over. It counts you as "out" for the purposes of declaring the game over when you have lost all ships, including I-Ships and P-Ships; so there's usually no need to explicitly withdraw.
