    The only way I know how to do it is to set to interactive mode.

    Then start WoW; it will ask you to allow / block. Click the 'advanced' button. Modify it to allow incoming and outgoing on the ports you listed.

    If you already have a rule made for WoW it might not be allowing incoming and outgoing traffic on all the ports necessary; you can edit the rules through the advanced options screen (personal firewall -> rules and zones -> zone and rule editor -> setup>.)

    I haven't tested my online games yet, but I'm fairly certain this will do what you need.

    Do the following:

    Enter the Advanced Setup Tree (F5)

    1. Navigate to Personal Firewall.
    Choose Interactive Mode

    2. Navigate to Personal Firewall -> IDS and Advanced options
    Make sure all services are allowed (a.k.a 4 services)

    3. In Personal firewall -> IDS and advanced options , enabled logging

    Open Personal firewall > Rules and zones > Zone and rule setup
    Choose Toggle detailed view of all riles (if already not set to this)
    Uncheck every rule that has in the name Block.

    Confirm with OK.

    Start creating new rule:

    Name : your choice
    Direction : Both
    Action : Allow
    Protocol : TCP & UDP

    Additional action:
    check Log

    In Local tab choose - For every (ports)
    In Remote choose - For every (ports)
    Then there is an option to choose the application you wish to create the rule for (choose the exe of the game you play) . It is very important to select an exe , otherwise the rule can be very ..."bad" one

    Confirm with OK.

    Again open the Advanced Setup Tree (press F5)

    Navigate to the Exclusions . Add an exclusions , browse to the folder where all the game files are stored . Confirm the folder to be added . After that , mark the folder and press edition -> manually edit in a way so that it looks like that example path (with star symbol at the end):
    Confirm with OK.

    Restart the machine and try again :)
