Crimson Elite skins: False Promises?

They got us all hyped up when they posted in the announcement that such themed skin for noxians would finally rise to counter the demacian commando themed skins. Yet so far only Riven and Talon received it and they aren't even true noxian - one is a vagabond who isn't fighting for the name of Noxus; the other is a true noxian yet self-exiled. While those who have shown true loyalty to their state are forgotten like:

The daughters of the feared Noxian General Du Couteu: Katarina and Cassiopeia
High Commands of Noxus: Katarina and Swain
Noxian Commander/General and Executioner: Darius and Draven
Loyalist and fanatic soldiers of Noxus even in undeath: Sion and Urgot
Scientists of Noxus: Warwick, Singed and Dr. Mundo
Noxian Hemomancer, Noxian leader of the Black Rose and the famed Noxian temptress: Vladimir, Leblanc and Cassiopeia

Maybe Katarina and Vladimir are not gonna have a new skin anytime soon since both got new ones recently, Leblanc is not counted since hers is an event skin and not purchasable anymore, so any news Riot about them and this wonderful theme ever coming into view? Or will it be like Magma Chambers where it will forever lay in the dusty attic you call archives, never to be touched again, making us fans wait for something that will never come into existence?

Crimson Elite are for Noxians who have defected from Noxus. This can be seen in Talon and Riven's lores, obviously. There was also signs of Katarina defecting judging from how the lore was progressing until Riot stopped. So she may get a skin sometime in the future.

Defected? I think you got your lore screwed. Talon is noxian but he never defected, he is just doesn't want to be a puppet nor a tool for the noxian government and their schemes, he is just liberal and minds his own business while being loyal to his mentor. Riven is also not a defector, she exiled herself when she saw that the ones controlling the noxian military have no sense of honor in terms of battle. Yet she continues to progress in the name of Noxus coz in her heart she knows that Noxus will soon be the beautiful and honorable state that she was once loyal to. So neither of them have defected from Noxus

The problem is, and why you haven't seen anymore of them, is that they weren't popular.

It's true.

The commando skins had that wonderful cheesy military theme with the sunglasses for cool factor. They sold well despite being simple, hence the parade of them.

Crimson Elite? All of those skins look terrible. They look like super-villian rejects. The talon one was the only decent one by virtue of being talon's only good skin.... then riot made the Chinese new year talon and once again there's no reason to pick up the Crimson Elite talon.
