    Sounds like a load of bull.

    Erm, if someone is worried about a firewall sapping resources then why aren't they using a hardware one that they just configure to allow the required game ports through? Or is this about automating the process so that you don't need to know how to go to portforward.com to figure it out?

    Another day another gimmick... be funny to see how many saps are sucked into this one.

    Windows firewall+defender are perfectly suited for anyone's needs tbh. They allow games and hardly use any extra resources since they are part of windows svchost processes. I do go a step further and use NOD32 for anti-virus protection but I prefer safety over 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000001 of a drop in FPS for my game.

    Anti-viruses aren't that bad for resource usage that your game is going to be noticeably effected(well except for Norton, if you buy Norton you should be slapped anyway because its useless) and the windows security is good enough for the average user. All you need to do is set them not to automatically do scan once a week and just do them yourself when you go to bed... simple as that.
