So I just played a game where I had a lot of inducement money, was hoping to induce Deeproot but not only was he unavailable - there were a bunch of undead stars as well as the usual fling cheaper stars. https://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=match&id=4524405 I haven't played much recently but that seemed very odd - is that a bug?

Hello!
Not a bug: Stars identified as Mega-Stars are unavailable in the Competitive Division.
Deeproot is a Mega-Star.
Mega-Stars are currently: Bomber Dribblesnot, Deeproot Strongbranch, Griff Oberwald, Hakflem Skuttlespike, Kreek ‘the Verminator’ Rustgouger and Morg ‘n’ Thorg.

Ah thanks Matt, that explains that bit then! But should flings have access to undead stars?

Frank'n'Stein is the only Undead Star I see there.

These are the Star Players available to Halfing teams.
Note the 'Mega Stars' are, as Matt said, NOT available in Competitive, Blackbox or
Secret League 2020 environments currently.

Edit: Matt ninja'd me!

Thanks both, I guess it was just Frank N'Stein then and it jumped out at me! Have to say I do agree with those inducement changes too, I think that was was a good call. Those Mega-Stars were rather overpowered, and Bomber kept turning up at only 50k so was particularly bad!

Banning Mega-Stars is a Commissioner's option.
Christer, as Fumbbl's Commissioner, decided to ban them before BBT 8 started, for the record:
