    the team lacks starriness

    Hi

    Do you find the use of "starriness" in the context below? Please help me with it. Thank you.

    What this team lacks is starriness (the team should consist of some star players who people love and cherish as idols)

    It's understandable, but star quality would be better.

    Personally, I couldn't decipher "starriness" at all in this context. I had to read your explanation to know what you meant.

    You could also go with "star power".
