Hi !

I abandonned a nice game because for ten turns I could not reinforce my troops. Event those sitting at one case from the capital did not draw reinforcement.
Of course I could not update said troop either.

I managed to grab many minors through diplomacy, so probably my logistic has difficulties to scale.
I franticaly updated both rail and road building to level IV on capital.
When checking SHQ unit, I see every Zone and unit received what they needed (no units are starving for instance) and I got a majority of what the zones wants to send to HQ.
But reinforcement is last on list and still 0...

It is a bit a game killer as 4 majors declared war on me 3 turns ago and I can't put my troops back to size or update them...

Maybe reinforcement should be a bit higher on the priority list... I'd say : send what troops needs, then reinforcement, then everhything else..
Or maybe we could order SHQ to priorize ?

Anyway a very interesting game, but logistics always bugged me in the 5 games I tried so far (1.04 then 1.04 patch 9 and this last one on 1.05)

It definitely sounds like a Logistics issues. Partiucallary a "bottleneck at teh SHQ" case originally, wich you seem to have fixed. With reinforcements however, it oculd also be a bottleneck on the troop side.

Always use the bottleneck Overlay to figure out where the issue is, before you start "fixing" things!
Otherwise you might end up making it worse (because suddenly you run out of fuel). Unforunately without you showing us said dispaly, there is nothing we can do to help you really.

If you're unable to upgrade unit near to you capital - it's mean all logistic points are spend. For capital it's a critical shortage situation, you should upgrade your Truck Station at least twice in that case.
Plus railroads are mandatory past early game.

Game is using correct priorities, instead you're simply HUGELY lack logistic capabilities :)
