    Why would a game ask for you to block it at the firewall?

    (I of course am just yanking your chain, I know why already... lol)

    Yes, there are many, many entirely legitimately purchased games that tell you to do that.

    You need to configure a firewall rule in Windows.

    Here is some handy-dandy documentation from Microsoft that includes information on how to do that. If you want to pirate games, you are going to have to learn to help yourself.

    What is your OS?
    This is the kind of question I think you may get a faster answer with Google.

    Disconnect your router/modem when playing?

    Real answer:
    You need to know what the game is doing, which website it's accessing, which ports it's using.
