The lifetime subscription was available for $199 for those who pre-ordered.
Not long after launch, a new liftetime offer available for everyone appeared (at $299), which is still going on.
Since then, Turbine has been offering a discounted lifetime subscription for $199 on several occasions (e. g. for pre-ordering the expansion).
