You could.
It would be better to turn off your AV rather than firewall.

Since your AV would be off, be very careful if you have to click any links.

Maybe, but some firewalls can be too sensitive and end up blocking internet access or blocks programs.

I don't understand why'd you need to disable your AV just to run a game though.

It should be fine in theory, but even when inside the game, any links you receive from other members could be malicious, so DO NOT visit anything.
