I've just downloaded the latest client patch, 2.28.0.
I've read the change log but I don't see any mention about Cindy Piewhistle.

Has she been banned and the change log just omitted it?
Since now she's a Mega-Star, I guess she should not be available anymore, with the latest patch.

No mention of that in the previous patch either (2.27.0).
I played 2 games with Cindy on 28/05/2024 so I'm sure that she was still available recently.

Megastar setting is handled on the site and Christer applied that after the last faq came out.

Cindy Piewhistle was not available from the list of Inducements when last I used Gnomes. So I would assume you are safe from her on pitch antics now! She just needed a nerf imho. No more Accurate, Limit the teams she can play for and an increase in price would of been sufficient. Perhaps loosing dodge and gaining running pass (Hit & Run) would have made her a more interesting character. But no make her a "MEGA-STAR" Jeesh! This is why stunty teams can't have noice things!

Ah I see, thank you very much! Good to know!
As an aside, my issue with her is when people hired her as overdogs.
Yes, I think that Stunty teams should have bombers (not OP ones, though). Stunty teams should be about Secret Weapons and deranged gameplay. Outright banning her rather than nerfing her sounds wrong to me as well but, since they are unable to balance Star Players, then a banned Cindy is better than an OP Cindy.

My issue with her is that some teams could get her that absolutely did not need a player like that (dwarves, norse, humans for example). Easy nerf would have just make her available only to halfling thimble cup.

The next edition needs more special rules. Chaos Dwarfs and Skaven shouldn't have very many stars in common.

That, and Bomber and Cindy were the worst kind of design mistake, and they should have seen that coming a mile away. Like, if Bomber and Cindy both had some other skill instead of Accurate (Cannoneer or HMP would have been funny), Bombardier didn't come with MB, and they cost like 95k and 85k respectively, they'd have been hilarious.

"Chaos Dwarves shouldn't (exist)."

I fixed it for you JR.
