  1. Hi all,Just joined the forum today:)
    Kinda of a noob here,but not so new to computers.
    Are there any substantial risks to playing online without my firewall on?(UT)
    The reason i ask is simple.With the firewall on my ping stinks,with it off its great!

    I do it all the time, I feel the chances of a gamig server being infected is low. As soon as I log off the game I turn my Firewalll back on.
