As MMORPGs move to F2P and B2P models, llifetime subs become obsolete. So IMO never do it.
This is at the top of my list of what Im looking forward to, but I'll never get a lifetime membership. Agree with what the poster said about Lord of the Rings, though that game was pretty good to me. I only played it though for about a year and stopped at end level.
Also, I think we need to see more gameplay from every day users. Until we do, I'm keeping my optimism in check because I feel a little let down by TOR which I still haven't gone beyond level 48 lol. It also was a solid game, but it really does feel a little too linear and single player and Id rather play Skyrim :-).
There Is Always Hope!

Erm, ESO team didn't develop Skyrim. But even if they did, I would never buy a lifetime subscription. It's a waste of money.
I bought a lifetime sub for TSW, even though I suspected the game would not appeal to the average gamer. But in the case of TSW, I liked the game so much that I felt like just rewarding Funcom for having the guts to try and do something different (and then doing it so well
But I have no feeling that ESO is going to be breaking any molds. Unless I play some open beta and get totally blown-away by the game play, I doubt that the game will be anything special. It may be polished and well executed, but currently it simply looks like a classic medieval themepark game.
I have never gotten a lifetime sub to any game.
Won't be changing my policy with this one.

The ESO team have all the assets of skyrim at their disposal considering zenimax media own bethesda.
They didn't. The ones making TESO is ZOS, or Zenimax Online Studios. It is not the same devs as in Bethesda. And I should tell you that I wouldn't say that Skyrim was Bethesda's milestone in anything but sales. It's grindy and riddled with shallow, radiant quests that just keep you grinding forever. Although I guess that fits into the MMO genre.
EDIT: Apparently I was a bit too late with my post. Anyhow to the fellow claiming that ZOS has all the assets from Bethesda is a silly person. If that was the case they would create a new studio for this game. The Bethesda devs are working on other games. They have already announced that they are working on their next "Adventure", hence why they won't be putting out any more DLC for Skyrim.
I have bought lifetime subs, if only for the ease of a one off payment, and the game is always open to me.
I would like to hear more about this game in general to be honest, seems very thin on the ground info wise apart from the usual cutscene movies and what I can glean from websites who have been lucky enough to play it a little.
I do wonder if it will even be subs based in the long term with so many going F2P so quickly.
Nowadays with MMO's being two a penny, hype surely plays a huge part in building fan interest, they cannot rely on us longtime ES players to be the core.......... or can they?.
Lifetime sub in a day and age where one mmo after another fall death after a few months ?No thanks :P
Better wait for the free to play annoucement these days
Anyone paying for lifetime, Beta Founders Packs or any other shady deals is a sucker. If recent history has not told them anything then they must be either ignorant or completely oblivious.
People need to get their act together and
1. Wait until the game is released.
2. Demand 3 day trials or buddy passes starting at release.
3. Stop paying for unfinished games!
I would consider a lifetime sub providing it is available after the release of the game. I need to play it for a bit before I consider that type of investment. Since I quit DAOC, I have not played an MMO for more than a few months.
I would have bought a lifetime for Lotro but missed out on it, doh. And definitely would have bought lifetimes for my DAOC accounts.
