I suggest that WG make all player's stats only accessible by the player. 

If a player wants to share their stats with another player, clan recruiter or stat site they can send them a screen shot. They can do so as often as they like.

This would go a long way to ending the XVM brain rot, SBMM clamoring as well as stat shaming. Eliminating those 3 taunting enablers will improve player's game experience particularly for new players.

Stats should be only available via WG site and in-game, but if third party have access to it, should not make it available on battle.

 

In other worlds, BAN XVM. Game would be in much better health without XVM: less stadpadders, yolo, quitters, AFK, zero line camping, shaming, arty focussing, newbies quitting, ETC

Stats should be only available via WG site for the owner of the stats, not everyone.

Stats should not be available via any source in game except for the owner of the stats. 

Third party stat sites can work from the screen shots a player sends them.

No need to ban XVM since it won't work unless players send the operators a stat screen shot many many many times. If this results in the other things you list that's even better.

The only way to do that is to turn on the anonymizer for everyone. Mods like XVM can just automatically connect to wherever you access stats while not in battle, and relay that information to someone in battle. It's like if you had a friend looking up the usernames on his cell phone while you played. The anonymizer simply doesn't provide you with their username to begin with.

If my stats are not accessible to anyone but me no one, not even XVM can see them.

I also believe individual player stats should be withheld from open viewing unless authorized by the player.  This would pretty much wipe out much of what XVM and a host of other assorted WoT-stats websites do.

So, it's probably not going to happen.  However there may be other options. 

Stop distributing stats derived from Random Matches, much as is done with Frontline.  Alternatively stats could be released to XVM etc but withhold Player ID info.  Wargaming could bring all statistical information back "in-house" as proprietary information and utilize only it's own methods for data display, again making it's release subject to player discretion.

Wargaming does recognize how stats leads to at least a portion, probably significant, of inter-player toxicity.  While the anonymizer really does not accomplish much it is open recognition of that problem.

None of this needs to impact per-tank or map statistical information release.
