I wanted to appear as offline in Valorant and tried to type in netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="lolchat" dir=in remoteport=5223 protocol=TCP action=block in my command prompt.

Now it takes way more time to start the game and where my friendlist usually is, there is now just "service unavailable". I want to reset this and make it back to normal settings. I already tried to redownload the game but that didnt work. Please help me, I would appreciate that a lot!

    Just run netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name="lolchat" and that will delete it via command line. – Drink Some Pimp Juice IT Jan 14 at 3:24

    @DrinkSomePimpJuiceIT That's basically an answer. You could post it as such. – gronostaj Jan 14 at 7:36

    Good idea, I just added it to the already posted answer since it's essentially the same thing just one way versus the other. – Drink Some Pimp Juice IT Jan 14 at 11:51

From admin elevated command prompt to delete the firewall rule run:

netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name="lolchat"

Or go to Windows Firewall from the Control Panel and then delete the rule named lolchat, as picture below to delete it via the GUI method:
