however my post on the flooded playlist has been blocked, and no nameplate has arrived in the December update, what is halo waypoint hiding?
The December update didn't happen.
It is now the January update - to be released sometime later this month. No confirmed date.
...They're not hiding anything, if you read through the forums you'll see it all announced...

- Spoiler - It was *not* for completing the campaign playlist Flooded, it was playing infection matches in late October.
Another link explaining the nameplate
Quote:If you didn't see the news yesterday, Infection has returned to MCC! It just feels so right to play your favorite zombie-inspired modes from Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 2: Anniversary in one spectacularly terrifying playlist.
To celebrate it's return from the dead, we're giving away this Flood lobby nameplate if you play a match of Infection in the playlist between now and Halloween. As a heads up, the Infection nameplates will only start rolling out in early November – so just keep in mind that patience is a virtue, and we'll get the nameplate to you in due time.
Link explaining the Flooded campaign playlist
Quote:Infection also made a terrifyingly triumphant return to Halo: The Master Chief Collection! Now you can play your favorite zombie-laden modes from Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 2: Anniversary all in one convenient playlist. In fact, MCC’s Infection experience also brings with it the limited-time opportunity to earn a special Flood lobby nameplate if you play a match of Infection in the playlist between now and Halloween.
- Note there is nothing stated about any reward for completing this playlist.
Last month, players were challenged during the final weeks of October to play the Infection Playlist and unlock the new Flood Nameplate. This challenge was not taken lightly - players took to MCC and infected as many as they could between Oct 17 and Oct 31. Y’all played so much Infection that MCC's main menu has become… Infected.
Here's the final tally from last month's Infection event:
The top 4 players across more than 250+ games of infection played were:
- Approximately 50,000 players participated and were awarded the Flood Nameplate!
- 18,639 players completed only 1 game
- 20,448 players completed 2-5 games
- 10,856 players completed 6-10 games
- 6,000 players completed 11-50 games
- 518 players completed 51-100 games
- 140 players completed 101-199 games
- 18 players total completed 200+ games.
- 7 players completed a total of 250+ games (but only 4 of those players did not have excessive quits)
A big shout out and thanks goes to everyone who jumped it to play Infection and lend their support to MCC!

With the main menu now being taken over by the Flood, we need you to continue the fight and help us retake it! Containment protocols are being activated to help handle this outbreak, but we need more reclaimers in this fight against the infected! Between November 19th and November 30th, complete the “Flooded” playlist to help us destroy this plague against humanity!
So to summarize:
-There was a MP Infection playlist challenge, to complete 1 match before October 31, and earn the Flood Namplate sometime in November.
-The main menu was then overtaken by the flood and we were challenged to complete the campaign playlist Flooded - without knowledge of any specific reward.
-The December update would have removed the main menu flood theme - and likely would have revealed the results of everyone's attempts at the Flooded playlist. This update was delayed to due 'game breaking' glitches in it, until later in January. We'll find out the results of the Flooded playlist - and any possible reward - then.
-Who knows why your forum post was locked - you're best to message the moderator that told you not to bump posts.
Hope this helps =)
