@DaHammer build a blacksmith, then buy the "improve equipment" upgrades
@Jonken the bug should be fixed now. If you are using an old saved game you need to start a new one. Alternatively try deleting your cookies and reloading the page.
I think for the bug fix to work you need to start a new game. If you have started a new game in the last few hours you should be fine. Bug fix for the deathmatch deleting your progress will be online very soon.
can those of you who are still getting a bug when resetting tech points try reloading the page? (right click - > reload in firefox, or refresh in IE). Or try clearing your cookies? Its working 100% fine for us... maybe it hasn't downloaded the latest version of game for you guys?
